last night, my wife and i spent a good 20 minutes lecturing our son about cleaning up his toys every night, before going to bed.

then, as we were putting him to bed, my wife mentioned that her carpal tunnel syndrome (in both wrists) was acting up, and we should think about getting a cleaning lady, especially if we want to sell the house.

i concurred, so my wife asked my son if he'd like to help interview cleaning ladies in the upcoming days. we'll ask if they clean floors, and bathrooms, and such. he excitedly agreed to help, and then quite logically exclaimed, "and we'll ask them to clean up my toys!!!!"
when we stopped laughing, my wife retorted that he will continue to clean up his toys, so the cleaning lady can vacuum the floors without sucking up a toy.

so, he thought hard for a second, then started rubbing his wrists, saying "oh boy, mom. my wrists really hurt. i fell down and hurt them, and now i'll have to get a cleaning lady to pick up my toys..."

i laughed all night at my little scammer.

It is still early here and the first thing that made me smile this morning is getting an email from a girl I thought only like this one person to talk to. I found her really nice and I'd love to be friends with her but I kept quiet. This morning I got an email from her and it made me smile to know that I am appreciated no matter if she hasn't said anything at all to me lately.

So far it is nearly noontime here now I remember this morning when I told my little doggie to go outside and do his thing then find some rabbits. I really don't mean it because I know he will never catch one. Then we saw a little furry thing running across the backyard and he ran after it. It was a rabbit. He caught it, shook it and drop it in my feet. Then looked at me for a treat. I must have disappointed him because I went inside and called DH. He praised the dog while I was still in shock. When all was said and done, I knew I should have taken a photo of it all.
