Say What?

The other day I was driving home with my two boys after a wonderful day at my sister's pool.  I had a CD in that my other sister had made for us with 'kid-friendly' music (oldies, classics, etc..)  From the back seat I could hear my 8 year old say to my 5 year old, "This song is about s'mores.  Isn't that silly?" 
Instantly I was having a fit of convulsions and barely able to see for the sea of tears streaming out of my eyes.  My son, "Mummy, what's so funny?  Mummy, you're going to get into a car accident, stop laughing."
Are you wondering what the song was?... ready?...  Dean Martin's 'That's Amore'!!!  Or, as my son heard it, "That's a S'more".  I LOVE it!  I can't make this stuff up!!
Well now it only stands to reason that since this happened I have had s'mores on the brain.  Like it really takes much to get my mind to focus on sweets.
Just a few short hours ago the hubs and I indulged in a s'more each (using about 1/2 the chocolate one normally uses).  Now, the remaining chocolate is calling me from the kitchen.  I refuse to listen!  I will instead head off to take a shower and when I come out I will wrap up my children's church lesson for the morning. (Just found out a couple of days ago that I was needed to fill in.) 
Sorry chocolate - only one visit from me today.  I'm sure I'll be back for another brief visit soon - but don't be so pushy!!  Rationing is good!
Hope you're all having a great weekend!!

  1. I love the way children adjust their thinking to what they hear. I guess we all do that. Adjust our hearing to what we understand and react accordingly.

    Trust you are having great weekend to begin another wonderful week.
