"Story Lady! You're back!"

My kiddos missed me while I was away and welcomed me back with many hugs and opinionated declarations about Substitute Story Lady. It's good to be favored. ;P Of course, I eyed them rather severely and said, "I'm sure you made [S.S.L.] feel welcome . . . and that you thanked her, yes?"

Kids: "Yes, Story Lady."

We ended up spending some of our reading time making S.S.L. a thank you card, which lessened the kids' obvious guilt. *snorts*

It was only while watching one of the kids wipe his nose with construction paper that I realized where I probably caught my cold. *snorts at self*

In other news, Shog and I are having frozen chocolate custard for lunch because tomorrow, Rita's closes for the season. *waves*

P.S. It's possible that I'll have time to write a ficlet this afternoon . . . .

Yeah, you can't blame an anonymous sneeze when you're around snotty kids all day. It's the odds. How old are your kiddos?

Frozen yogurt custard sounds amazing. I used to visit a friend in cottage country every summer, driving 5 hrs through crazy Toronto traffic to get there and one of the places I always made her go was the frozen yogurt place where you selected the frozen fruits that would be folded in and served in a home made waffle cone. Shallow ... I don't think so.

At least I didn't make her go to the burger place where they knew the name of the cow (and wasn't THAT creepy!) that had been ground up to make that batch of burgers.

Amazing how food rules my life. :)

My youngest is four, my eldest is ten. :) I read at least three times per week and let the kids come to whichever sessions they want; I also let them read to me and each other because it keeps them engaged and helps them learn. I love doing it.

Frozen custard is delish; frozen custard blended with fruit sounds decadent. :D

You know, I don't think I need to know the cow's name, just that my burger is made from a cow. ;P
