Fish don't swim in MILK!!!

Okay, so this was too funny not to post. Crew had just got home from school and asked for his milk....well I told him it was in the fridge and he was a BIG boy and could go get it and then he could pick a snack from the snack box and go watch cartoons until Trip woke up from his nap. So off he went rummaging through the cupboards and fridge unsupervised while I was in the office paying bills and blog surfing my friends blogs when I heard Crew crying "Oh Fishy! Oh No! Where did Fishy go! Mom, Fishy gone!" I flew out of the room and into the kitchen to address the fish situation. And thats when I saw it!!! The fish bowl was spilling over w/ MILK!!! Crew still sitting next to the bowl along with a near empty milk carton whimpering (while I frantically was trying to save the near lifeless fish, get the story, & try not to laugh) tried to tell me what had happened. His story: Apparently, while searching through the fridge to find his cup of milk he saw the "BIG milk" sitting there and he decided that "Fishy like milk too!" So he "gived Fishy a dink" and then "Oh no! Fishy gone!" Needless to say, we saved our fish (unless he crokes in the next day or two from milk inhilation). Crew appologized to his fish and got a quick lesson from mom (and a swift kick to the BUTT) that ......"Fish don't swim in MILK!"

Poor Fishy! I'll keep you updated on how the fish is holdin up :)

Back To School

"....I got my lunch packed up, my shoes tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight! Oh, back to school....." Thanks to Adam Sandler I can't help but have "The Back To School Song" ring through my head this time of year. For those of you who didn't know this is Crew's 1st year of Pre-School. He still has 2 years before kindergarten BUT we had him tested into the 'Sunbeam' program and he was accepted. (The Sunbeam program is there to help kids that 1-need the social interaction w/ their peers 2- w/ hearing disabilities, speech, ADHD, eye impairments, etc, etc.) The first day we sat and waited for the bus to come to the house (yes, the bus comes to your front door:)). My heart was racing, my throat choked up, and the flood gates were ready to flow.....and then it was time for school and.....the bus didn't come! Apparently they had forgot him! So we rushed him to school. He was beaming ear to ear as the school came into view (I thought it might stretch off his face when he walked into the class room!) All in all, Crew's first day was a success!!! And I only let myself cry a little :)
