April's a Goner

Well, April is over and I blogged, what?  Once?  There are a few reasons, but the three main reasons are:

#1 Sometimes the weather is nice, meaning we're outside (and I'm away from the computer.) 

#2  My sewing machine and I got to know each other intimately.  Between B's Easter dress and some of the other things I was making, I spent a lot of time with that machine this past month. 

#3 Hubs's actuarial exam was last Friday.  So he was in his major study/cram mode.  For the past few months we saw him from 6pm-9pm (his bedtime) Monday through Saturday.  (Saturdays he spent all days at Panera, studying)  And even on Sunday afternoons he'd disappear for 3-4hrs to study.  This "single parenting" thing?  No.Fun.  

And apparently, all this studying he's been doing.... it was all for not.  Because he didn't take the test today.  He never registered for it. *and he wonders why I have gray hairs*

I think we're confusing her....

The other day, the Hubs and Miss B were playing their guitars while I finished getting dinner on the table....

Miss B:  "Daddy! We're playing the guitar song of the ants!!!" (after hearing the opening chorus of Guitar Hero).
Hubs:  "What? What's ants?"
Miss B:  "This is ants! We heared it at Giant Eagle last morning!"
That’s where I had to step in and interpret.  They were playing The Beatles…  And I had pointed them out to her at GE the previous day.

After they played "Octopus's Garden" it was time for dinner.  She sat there slurping her spaghetti noodles singing, "Under the Sea" then she changed it to, "Under the K"  and then, "Under the S!"  :)
And then we were having a conversation earlier today where we were talking about her "aquarium"  (A Tupperware container where we put all of the "water animals"- a shark, a seahorse, a dolphin, an octopus, etc.)
Me:  "What else lives in the ocean?"
Miss B:  "Beatles live under the sea!!!"
Me:  "I don't think beatles live under water..."
Miss B:  "Yes, Mom!  Beatles live in the Octopus's Garden under the sea!"

And then I tried to explain that the name of the band- guys that play the guitars and sing- is The Beatles, and that they aren't the actual bugs that live under water. 

Sheesh.  This is getting more complicated than I expected.
