Ashley: What do you think about going to the beach?
little kid: Aday? Now?
Ashley: Well, we just got a parking sticker and I can do the rest of my work later this afternoon.
little kid: And I have a day off! My wook fwiends not here and I not goin' a wook. So, we could definitely go to da beach aday, mumum.
Ashley: You have the day off? Nice! We're both free of work, I know where our bathing suits are and it is beautiful out. Sounds like a good beach day to me.
little kid: My pirate ship is in da twuck. My baving suit is in my dwawer, I'm gonna go put it on now.
And I'm going to go put mine on now and make this messy house disappear and avoid seeing Karate Kid again at the same time!
Thanks again to everyone who helped with the walkathon. Big Kid raised just over $100 total and he was elated. He kept talking about how his teacher would be able to get a few nice things now and how happy she would be to get some new stuff. He was really proud. He says he loves his school so much that sometimes he feels like crying when it is time to go home (and no, it's not because home is that bad).
I was going to go walk with him today, but once I suggested that little kid and I could sing "You're the best around, nothing's gonna ever keep you down" or "I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more" while doing the Running Man beside him, he said he'd probably just walk with his friends. So, I guess I'll just go to the beach instead.
