What's that smell?

Today was one of those days where I stopped and asked myself several times, "Is that *my* kid?"
First of all, during his (ahem) daily constitutional, he sang Leona Lewis' Bleeding Love at the top of his lungs. Even though the bathroom door was shut, you could hear him all through the house. Seriously. I need to check his Ipod. Shouldn't he be singing something by the Chipmunks?
Then later, he took his shoes off and declared, "Whew! My feet smell like the play area at Chuck E. Cheese! It really does Mom! Come smell my feet!"
Uhmmm. No thanks Spencer. How about a bath?

Then we ended the evening with a large debate about how many people in the world know North Carolina exists. I am sure this is my fault because I just bought him a new globe and I was explaining the differences between continents and countries. Then he asked about states and I told him I didn't know about states in other countries or provinces, etc. I even (gasp!) admitted I don't even know most of the countries. If we haven't had a war there or it isn't a cruise destination then I probably can't find it on a map with ease. This bothered my son. Stupid globe revealed my idiot card!

Speaking of idiots and cards (hee hee I crack myself up sometimes)..... guess what I'm doing this weekend??? Here's a hint:

OMGoodness that kid always makes me laugh!! Ok so what are you up to? - you look like you're ready to go hitch hiking!!!

OK now for today's geography lesson! Australia is the earth's largest island and it's smallest continent. We have 5 states: Victoria (where I live!!), New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania and we have 2 territories: Northern Territory and the ACT (Australian Captial Territory) which is where our Parliament is housed.

Here are some interesting facts for you

Ok thus concludes today's geography lesson from the land down under :)

I are ignorant with geography. I hate that my 20 yr. old is more up-to-date on current events than I am...and I love it all at the same time. I guess I should be reading something to git me some smarts besides all these blogs....

LOVE your kid!

My kid will want to carry on a conversation while she is on the throne.

Guess what you did this weekend, eh? Well, that looks like a rubber stamp of a ticket... so I'm guessing you made counterfeit raffle tickets and stuffed your local festival/school carnvial/church fundraiser/insert event's raffle box with tickets? Am I right?
