Thoughts for Thursday

Ham, 8 1/3 months on his baby quilt

1. Visiting teachers come over now! My house is clean. You have approximately 2 minutes give or take 45 seconds.

2. Negative 8. Not bad at all. I think I will venture downtown today (with all four kids).

3. How did orange juice become duck juice?

4. How did Wal-Mart become Ooh-Mart?

5. How come Pookie can say "vermillion", "parallelogram", and define the three states of mass and the phases of the moon, but he can't say "elbow"?

6. Yes, I think napkins should be renamed "snackins." I think that Gabbers is on to something here.

7. Maybe I should open a real Mommy-Store (disclaimer: this was thought during an unusually tired, disoriented, early morning Mommy-Store shopping trip.)

8. Why don't we have icicles around here?

9. I wonder if the kids would buy broccoli at the Mommy-Store.

10. If I dedicate as much time to an online degree as I do to blogging, I wonder how fast I could get a degree.

11. If they're all fighting over one toy, and we have to repeat this scenario everyday, 17 times a day, maybe I should get rid of all the other toys.

12. Anybody know how to get a book (story for children) published?

I can offer no help on most of your questions. But I do have a guess on the icicles. I'm guessing that because it is so cold where you live, there really are no thaws where it's slightly warm enough for snow to melt and drip down to form icicles.

We have tons here and just yesterday I had to explain to Christian (after witnessing this happen when I picked him up from scouts) that it's not wise to stand directly under huge icicles when your friend is whacking them down for you. Because you just might catch one - in your eye.

You know Nikki, I hope one day you'll email me Ham's real name. For the last 5 months I have been wondering every day I check your blog.... In case you don't know, my email is

I love the pics. :) You know, the reason you don't get icicles is because it's never warm enough for anything to actually melt before refreezing. I, on the other hand, have a huge patch of icicles right outside my window. Yay for days that actually get above freezing!

you are brave if you are going to venture out with all kids in the freezing cold. I often wonder after I go out to keep my sanity if I came back more insane from fighting with the kids :)

I loved your thought provoking questions! I read some other person's blog and this is what they did to publish their childs book Good Luck~!

Nikki said...

Thank you Cynthia. That's a pretty neat idea. But I'm actually looking for a way to get a book published written by an adult for children.

I am, however, going to keep that link. I think my kids might enjoy it.

I remember when MaddieLynn called nostrils "snotrils".
