Grits & thank goodness for clean underwear!!

I don't know where I've gone wrong! The kids help me cook and have measured ingredients a time or two. However, one would think that Lauren has never stepped foot in the kitchen after this morning's dilemma. She asked if she could make a bowl of grits and I of course told her she could. I just reminded her that she needed to add 1/2 C of water.

She looked at me and said, "What kind of cup?...not the kind we drink out of right??"

I just looked at my husband and we both started laughing. Luckily, Lauren laughed with us and didn't quite catch on that we were actually laughing at her. She really laughed at herself when I pulled out the measuring cup....she then grinned with embarrassment:)

It was a dreary day out today as it has been for the last couple of weeks. We decided to take the kids to Sternenland which is an AWESOME indoor place for kids. I'd kind of say it is like Chuck E Cheese on steroids. There are indoor electric go-carts so it doesn't stink like gas and 2 floors of nothing but FUN.

We had been there for a couple hours, which is about all I can take, when I see my husband and Colton heading my way. They had been over in the trampoline area jumping like maniacs. Well....let's just say it was time to go home. This is how my husband had to walk from the very back of this place up to the front! He was doing a front flip when he did this.

All I can say is thank goodness for clean underwear! Everyone got a good laugh!!

I wouldn't consider it jumping like a maniac. I was just watching the kids.

Hee hee - love your title and chuckled at that photo! NOW we know why mom always told us to put on clean underwear!

Andrea said...

Hehe. We were there on Tuesday, I believe. We should have waited for you!

I really enjoyed jumping on the trampoline and the big marshmallow-y thing-y. I didn't even consider splitting the pants! Yikes.

We went to Dynamikum in Pirmasens today-really fun!

That is funny. Totally would happen to my husband, but he would walk around showing off his a**.

Sounds like a neat place, I can't stand Chuck E Cheese. In fact last time we went I went into labor with my littlest one and sat there for two hours breathing heavily through major contractions! I go very slowly so I know I had time, but the smell in the place almost made me vomit every contraction....

Sorry for the visual....I am still a little traumatized!

I know what you mean about Chuck E Cheese! I avoid it like the plague. I can't believe you stayed there for 2 hours in PAIN!! More patience than me!
