Terrific Tuesday.....SIKE!

Yes I'm a child of the 80's and I still use stupid terms like "SIKE"! :)

It's the song that never ends...it just goes on & on my friend...some people started writing it a long long time ago...this is the song that never ends...
THAT is what my day felt like today!

I've said it before, but Tuesdays are awful at the Rogers household. I usually have some sort of errand to run in the morning followed by 7 loads of laundry - my weekly amount. Why I save it all for one day, only the Lord knows, but it's just habit.
Anyway, then it's off to get Jaydon and straight to swimming. I managed to get a decent video of him swimming today, but the glare from the glass & sun makes it hard to see. SO...one more week before you can see Jaydon swimming guys - sorry.
Then off to lunch and then leave to get Mark - the little boy I pick up from school and take home. He is 12 years old and in 7th grade. Today's conversation with Mark:

Jessica: Mark, I was just thinking that I'm old enough to be your mother. THAT is a scary thought! I would have been a VERY young mother, but I am definitely old enough.
Mark: So that makes you 30?
Jessica: Almost 30- but why did you guess that I'm 30?
Mark: Because girls have to be 18 in order to have a baby. Since I'm 12, then you would have to be 30.
Jessica: Really - 18, huh? I would say that you need to be at least 22 to have your first child because that's when you are a responsible adult.
Mark: Yes - that's what I've heard. Then in August when I turn 13, you won't be old enough anymore.
Jessica: But I'll keep aging too, silly - of course I'll still be old enough.

It's just funny to me that he thinks you have to be 18 to have a baby. The innocence of children - even at the age of 12. I hope that he keeps some of that beautiful innocence forever.

So after that, Mark needed a haircut (which I take him to every 4 weeks - RIGHT next to his house) and his hairlady was running late. I got out of there at 4:15 and then had to take him home, and get to my Mom's house to pick the boys up. Then it's off to fight rush-hour traffic to try and get home in time to change, change Jaydon, and then get to his game BEFORE 6:00. Since we coach, we can't just show up at 6:00. So we get to the game in record time. Then we have the "Mr. Know-It-All" umpire who messes up my whole bucket system when the kids are on deck, and he had a rule for EVERYTHING! UGH - they are 5 years old - this isn't the major leagues buddy!! Now I wish I would have gotten in his face or something so that I could have ended up on a cool video on YouTube.
Then after the game, we STILL haven't eaten dinner and then we have to get home to get Jaydon bathed and fed and in bed so he's not a complete zombie at school tomorrow. WHOMEVER MADE THE BASEBALL SCHEDULE DOES NOT HAVE CHILDREN!!! Then they have ANOTHER game this Saturday. Again - HELLO THEY ARE 5 YEARS OLD!!
Amanda & Ameet watched Jacoby for us while we were at the game. Thank you so much friends! My friend Andrea offered to watch him during the game, but she has her own little angel to take care of and I just hate thinking that she's watching 2 babies instead of watching her daughter play. BUT...she ALWAYS says she doesn't mind - nice friend that she is!!!

So here I am - surprisingly relaxed. :)
This is MY time on the computer, and it's so nice to type a mile a minute just venting!!!

I've written enough. Sorry to bore you today, but I just needed to release.
Breathe in, breathe out...

Have a wonderful hump day!
