Things you find out on Saturday . . .

Today I found out a few things. . .

1. I found out that Dustin CAN get a good haircut at Great Clips by a woman named Svetlana. She jerked his poor head around like a ragdoll, but man, he looks adorable.

2. I found out a car and an oven can catch on fire in one week. Tonight I put 2 frozen pizzas in the oven and went into the laundry room to fold clothes. Dustin comes into the kitchen and hollers, "The oven is on fire!" Nice. I had a piece of foil in the bottom of the oven which apparently collected some grease and caught fire. The inside of the oven was engulfed in flames.

Robert came in and rescued me, without even having to use the fire extinguisher. I walked into the computer room to turn on the ceiling fan to rid the area of smoke and Dustin had both kids on the floor rolling around. I asked what they were doing and Harrison says, "Dustin told us to stop, drop and roll." So I say, "No honey, that's for when you are on fire."

The pizzas survived the fire and came out quite good.

3. I found out that if you have 2 pets rats and one dies, the other dear, sweet pet will EAT it's former friend. Eeeeeeww! I may find it hard to cuddle her after I found out that she had reduced her friend to a simple carcass.

4. I found out that while I can clean up puke, poop and all matter of bodily fluids as a mother and child-care worker for years, I cannot bring my self to look at OR clean up rat carcass.

Eeeeeeww! Is an understatement regarding pet rats. And I am talking about the fact that you use pet and rat in the same sentence, though the rest is pretty yucky as well.

Starting two fires in one week? Maybe you should take yourself down to the local fire station and set yourself down for one of their scary talks about fire like I did to my son when I found matches in his bed one night.

And in the midst of it all you contiue to count your blessings, "The pizza survived, and came out quite good!"

One my morning was over I had a MUCH quieter Saturday, but yours made for a much better post.

Gotta love days like those in the future when they seem down right hysterical. I loved that Dustin had his siblings Stop, Drop and Roll. But I loved your repsonse even more. :)

There must be something in the air killing rats..hmm.
It is nice to know that kids actually do listen to stuff, even if they apply it rather strangely.
