Chunglunds had a pretty kick ass weekend despite Little Miss J being punished for writing on the wall in pencil (AGAIN) and pouring a bucket of water on the bathroom floor while she was supposed to be brushing her teeth. She was apparently putting the water in the bucket to prevent it from spilling - which didn't make a whole lot of sense, but since she seemed to be so certain that she had a valid reason for filling up the water bucket Gus tried to give her an out by telling her that if she could give a rationale explanation that she wouldn't be in trouble. She failed and was banned from screen time for the entire weekend. Needless to say, when I asked her if she wanted to watch a show this morning she dramatically exclaimed, "My punishment is over? Thank you Umma. Thank you."
While her "punishment" consisted of no screen time, her weekend consisted of a girl date with Auntie Rachael complete with swimming and ice cream, hanging out with friends at the fire station and the pizza place, plus running amok with her friends at Millie's first horse show and seeing lots of horses, shave ice, and a pedicure from mommy. By the way, Rachael, I heard her singing "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by herself in her room yesterday.
The local fire station had an open house where all the kids got to climb around the fire truck and also take a look at the inside of the station like the weight room, the television room and the kitchen. I was pretty impressed with Little Miss J, who managed to articulately ask the fireman several questions including "how do you become a fireman." And when he gave a less than stellar answer in my opinion and presumbly in her opinion as well, she asked appropriate follow up questions. For example, his first response was a complete non-answer by giving her some song and dance about how girls can be firemen too. Um, thanks. Then he told her that she had to do good in school, to which she obviously wanted to know "what kind of school?" She sort of gave up on him when his answer to that one wasn't all that good either. But we got some fun out of the deal and then finished up the night with pizza and video games with the crew.
