Fish heads, fish heads, eat 'em up...YUM!

A busy weekend starting with a haircut at 8:30, followed by the husband's flag football practice at 9 a.m. and the son's soccer game at 11 a.m.

A freakish hit of the soccer ball to the son's nose resulting in a nasty nosebleed that would not quit. When bleeding finally ceased, so did every competitive urge in my son who reverted back previous ways of playing his game like spectator instead of a participant. (I couldn't blame him...)

A quick trip to a fast food place for grub before the sitter came to give the hubby and me a much needed date afternoon at the movies and dinner at a fantastically tasty and unique "Latin Fusion" cafe.
--------------------
But, wait. Rewind back to the fast food for a second. What is that at the bottom of my toddler's kids' meal sack? Oh, a toy! How sweet. Just what every mom wishes for...

...a boney fish carcass??? What the...???

Ohhh...a boney fish carcass that has a little mouth hole where you can attach a little lollipop in its mouth. Aaaah. It all makes so much sense now! (NOT)
------------
And, finally...

A week in front of me that looks like quite a challenge. I'm on kid duty 24-7 because the hubby has to travel for work. On an ordinary week, where public school entertains my six-year-old most all day, this wouldn't be a big thing. But, this is SPRING BREAK. OH MY GOODNESS...what am I going to do with my kids for five straight days???

A prayer...say a prayer my friends for the MomCat's sanity this week. And while you're praying for that, why don't you ask the powers that be this really crucial and life-altering question...

Why on earth would my adorable little girl with her bright blue eyes, strawberry curls and wide and welcoming smile...why, oh why, would she EVER want to play with plastic fish bones?

on spring break: insanity is what keeps us mommies engagingly blogable! On fish carcasses: it's blogworthy, so go with it! Good luck with Spring break - lots of playdates...LOTS of playdates!

Kids sometimes have the oddest ideas. Good luck on the spring break. Who knows they'll be little saints.

I'll pray for you over your spring break as long as you pray for me next week for our fall break, two weeks of madness. Good luck.
Oh and the fish thing .... ewww.

Maddy, prayers sent your way...consider it done! I'm sure I'll be OK here. Thankfully, a lot of people on our street aren't travelling for spring break either, so my son will have tons of friends to play with.

I can't tell you how many times I have asked that very same question...

Good luck this week! Times like that always turn out much better than you expected. That is, unless you're the Momster! ;)

I'm still mesmerized by the fish head.

Seriously, WTF?

Praying for your sanity. Or at least some really good stories this week.
