bit of a busy start to the week, what with Wife out of town on business. It’s just the girls and I at home until Thursday, so my apologies that I didn’t get this out yesterday. Strangely enough, yesterday was another rainy Monday and ripe for a joke. But with this morning’s cloud cover I think it will work just fine for today too.
Sweetie: “What did one ocean say to the other ocean?”
Me: “Uhhmm, I don’t know. What?”
Sweetie: “Nothing, it just waved! Get it?!? Get it?”
I think this one came from her classroom, but she was so excited to tell the joke I knew it had to make a post. And there you have, hope it brought you a smile for today.

Wanted to share a bit of today’s adventure with you all. Before I go on too long, let me say I hope your day is going well, and your adventures are constructive.
We live wonderfully close to St. Viator Elementary, the girls’ school. That makes days like today, “Bike to School Day”, especially fun. In the fall we were all about taking our wagon to school. This changes things up a bit.
As you may have noticed, Sweetie is still on training wheels. She just got the two-wheeler last year, so we are in the learning curve (for the record, I think her class is evenly split on training wheels). And Cricket, well, yes, she’s on a tricycle. We did practice this run before hand, but oh what fun!
Once we made it to school we joined the other kids for a two-block “loop” along the east side of the school (closed to traffic for pick-up of course). The girls made a lap around here and with the exception of a loosened pedal, they both did well. Going home in the afternoon was a different story and we made the last block and a half with me carrying the tricycle and pushing the bicycle. Yeah, good sleep after that…and for the girls too!
I hope your day was as beautiful as ours. I am thinking this marks our transition to cycle transportation – #summergoals! We’ll see you out there.
The rain is coming down here in Chicago, which makes it a perfect time for a joke! This one came from the St. Viator Elementary School Peace Builder Talent Show (that’s a mouthfull). While the joke is not a Sweetie original, she loved it and has re-told it many times.
Sweetie: There’s a tray of muffins baking in the oven. One of the muffins turns to his neighbor and says, “Is it just me or is it really hot in here? The neighboring muffin stares back at him and yells, “AAGGHHH – a talking muffin!”
Well, there you have it folks. I hope your week is starting off well. And if you’re around here, try to stay dry!
I warned you that I would keep sharing, so here’s another gut-buster from the older daughter.
Sweetie: “What is a tissue’s favorite dance?”
Me: “Ummm, dunno.”
Sweetie: “The boogie boogie! Get it?!?”
It’s the small joys sometimes, folks, the small joys.
