A couple of weeks ago we made a trip to St. Louis to see our little wee dotes, the grand-kids. By the time we arrive the kids are all excited about the things we plan to do. It used to be easier before we had to allow for gender preferences. Now, we need to plan for "boy stuff" and "girl stuff". So we did the Grossology exhibit at the St. Louis Science Museum (gross) and a kissy face movie called "Gnomeo and Juliet" (also gross according to my grandson).
We went pink shopping with my growing up so fast granddaughter Ella, and bought our lively little Lily a bowl of ice cream and sprinkles bigger than her whole face.
and kept up the whole gross themed weekend for our grandson J-Rod (Jonathan Rodney) by topping his ice cream off with the usual worms and dirt.
As a middle child and a boy, J-Rod is sandwiched between a lot of pink netting, princess paraphernalia, and flavored lip gloss and sometimes finds the need for a little solitude. This ingeneous boy has installed an extra special, very gross security system which he says works very well against female intrusion.
He keeps his sisters out of his room by taping "smelly socks and dirty underwear" to his doorknob. So, if things just get a little too pink for you, try it. He says it works like a charm.
Boy do I miss those little munchkins.
