recent happenings, and random funny things

It's autumn time. It's autumn time..... eventually the leaves will get all red. In the meantime, the leaves keep piling and piling on the backyard. They were everywhere until I piled them up yesterday afternoon. The pile was almost as tall as Caibo. Probably, the leaves are everywhere again this morning. I haven't dared look yet.
In honor of the cooler weather, Jade brought home the first disease of the season. The school called me Thursday to let me know she had a fever and that I should come get her. So I went and retrieved her from school. Long story short, and sparing you the ugly details, she has the strep. Good times....No, not really.
I got some sense and sprays for beyond super cheap at target a while back. I finally decided to clean my bathroom counter off and set one up. Last night Caibo came out of the bathroom screaming in terror. "Mom!! There is something evil in the bathroom!" It would seem he is not a fan.
Jade was reading to Caibo from her school reading book this morning. They were looking through all the pictures.
Jade looked up and asked, "Mom, do gorrillas like to hold kittens or eat them?"
I probably haven't mentioned this, but both kids are in super quesiton mode right now. I get asked all kids of weird crap. Caibo is like a walking quiz show host. "Mom, what's 1+1 what's 2+2 what's 4+4 what's 8+8..." He keeps going until I cannot answer anymore or he can't repeat the last number I said. Currently we are in the thousands. He is also big on color mixing. "Mom, blue+ yellow what's blue+white" but my personal favorites "What's purple+ yellow what's red+ black..." I may have to buy some paint to solve this problem.
So, if you want to jump in some leaves, catch a disease, or be a contestant on a quiz show, come on over. We're having a good time.

Cute picture! Your kids are so photogenic.
Yep, get that kid a color wheel and some watercolors and let the fun continue.
Where do gorillas get kittens?

I'm pretty sure the zookeeper gave the kitten to the gorrilla.
