Since moving to our new house we have also gotten to enjoy a new type of neighborhood. At our old house we were out in the country and it would have been pretty hard for us to take a family stroll down the road. But here the streets are pretty quiet and not a lot of traffic. So today I got the wagon out and Jon Kent got his little battery operated Jeep out. Jon Kent drove that while Zoey rode with him and Nathan rode in the wagon. We were happily going along and had gone a good ways when I decided it was time to turn around and head back to the house. Zoey asked to drive so I let her. About half way back Zoey was so busy looking around, not paying attention that she rams into a curve sending her youngest brother (who by this time decided he had missed out on enough fun by staying in the wagon) into the plastic windshield. Niiiiice. I made a mental note right then and there to start saving up on extra, full coverage car insurance.
Then tonight I was running water for the kids' baths. Zoey had put on some sunglasses and a sparkly hair bow and was running around singing and just being a ham. I called for her to come get her teeth brushed and get into the tub. When she came to me in all her sassiness and told me, "Momma, I'm a singa and singas don't take baths." Oops, my bad.. didn't know I was talking to the next queen of music.
