What's New

Yeah yeah I haven't blogged in a week or so. Soooo busy. I have to blog about the Vermont trip and Halloween. But tonight I am glued to the TV watching the election returns. But I have 2 quickies for you all.

Gavin apparently thinks Barack Obama is Italian, as he keeps referring to him as "Rocco Bomma". As in "Mommy, did you vote for John McCain or Rocco Bomma today?". My kids are too cute. They went to vote with Scott. He said that Francesca was yelling "WHO DID YOU PULL THE LEVER FOR? MCCAIN OR OBAMA??? TELL ME DADDY!"

Last weekend I was in CVS with Francesca, picking up this and that. We were in the feminine hygiene aisle, picking up some necessary items. Francesca was intrigued. Hmmmm, I could see the wheels turning in her head as she picked up a box and turned it every which way trying to figure out what one would do with such things.

Francesca: "Mommy, what do you DO with these things? Where do they go? How do you use them?"

Me: "Ummmm...Ummmm...well...ladies use them."

Francesca: "What for?"

Me: "Well Francesca. They keep ladies fresh."

Francesca: "YOU MEAN YOU CAN GO BAD????"

Oh my God I almost fell down laughing in aisle #12. It was such an innocent statement. I have explained many things to my kids (remember the 'how are babies born?' post?) but I could not could not even begin to explain THAT to her. As it is I only have about 5 more years before I have to explain it all in depth. She really made me smile that day.
