"Anyone can have one kid. But going from one kid to two is like going from owning a dog to running a zoo." - P. J. O'Rourke

Break With Reality

Co-op ended yesterday, and Zoe was sent home with this...

A little book of stories about Zoe's life....kind of....

Here is Zoe's retelling of our Christmas -

Zoe's Christmas
I woke up and opened my gifts.  We ate monkey bottoms for breakfast.  The monkeys ran for the door, but we were fast.  It was too late.

We then went to Grandma and Grandpa's house.  I had new yoga pants, so Grandma and I worked on our downward dog.

From there we went to church.  The little kids and I sang songs.  We sang "Jingle Bells" and "Eye of the Tiger."

Our evening ended with hotdogs, chips, pop and Pepto Bismol.  The DVD player made a humming sound as we watched the movie Boys Over Flowers. We all had a flowers in our hair.

All very good and fine, except we don't eat monkey bottoms, or chase monkey around our house.  Zoe has never done yoga a day in her life.  We did NOT eat hot dogs and chips and Pepto Bismol on Christmas, and we had no flowers in our hair!

Here's her "retelling" of our vacation to Alabama

Zoe Goes To Jail 

 We went to Alabama for a family vacation.  Along the way, we stopped at a shark and octopus store.  I took a shell bottle to show my brother Marcus.  The store called the police and they put me in jail for 21 days! 

My family went boogie boarding and out to eat.  They felt bad for me, but I was stuck in jail until the police saw it was all a big mistake.  

My family fed me cheese pizza and Sprite.  They said they missed me, and went bowling for 99 hours.  Boy, were we tired!

Ummmm, I'm not even going to try to explain this one!


  1. Oh my, I love your kids! Between R's affinity for cardboard and Z's stories...combine their forces and the creativity will be unstoppable!

  2. It's called "creative license".


Thanks for visiting. We would love to hear from you!
