Monday Musings: What Are the Odds?
On Saturday we had brunch at my parents home. As were leaving, we were discussing our need for graph paper for Lil D. He likes to write out sports statistics; they are usually for make-believe teams made up of friends and family.
As we were dressing ourselves for the outdoors, my mom disappeared upstairs. She returned a few moments later with this.
Does it look familiar? It’s a ledger book from the dark ages.
You should have seen Lil D’s face. It could be one of the best gifts he’s received EVER.
He immediately began entering his fictional team’s stats when we got home (cause I wouldn’t let him do it in the car).
And then he went to the Ottawa 67’s hockey game yesterday. He got a free pack of 67’s hockey cards. He got home and began copying into his ledger.
Last evening, we had to take it away and put Lil D in his room after he punched Derek in the face when he told him it was time to put it away and go have a bath. Ah – the joys of parenting.
4 a.m. this morning:
Lil C wakes up coughing. He wants “a cuddle”.
4:03 am this morning:
Lil D wakes up coughing. He wants to know why most of the players in the NBA are brown. I think he was trying to calculate his chances of making it some day.
