It has been so very long since I have updated the Bean Blog!
I feel horrible about it. But in truth life has swept us down a raging current and I don't really see any relief in sight. Part of the problem related to my computer taking a poo. Now I have a new computer, and the Blog is bookmarked. I will try to be more up-to-date in the future.
"Mom and the Meat"
The Bean has been in rare form as she "ages." Her vocabulary is exploding and her personality is becoming more defined. She is funny! I mean, deliberately funny. I love it.
The other night I was cooking taco's, which are a favorite in this house.
A few years ago, my middle son wrote a mother's day letter and in it he mentioned my famous taco's!!
"Once you take one bite of my mom's taco's you have to have more. They are delicious. She has a special ingredient, tobacco sauce."
...sigh... Thank you 3rd grade teacher for not proof reading that letter.
Oh, did I mention it was published in the county newspaper? Yeah. Tobacco sauce. Classic.
Anyway, back to the Bean. She has a phone that is nicknamed the "Zombie" phone. It is my old phone, that stopped working properly. The touch screen would not recognize a finger for anything! A month or so after my new phone purchase, the old one came back to life!! (I was fiddling [removing and messing] with the thick protective plastic cover and I think I accidentally gave it new life.) Well, she has a blast with that phone. It takes photo's and videos and she can pretend to talk and text. Fun stuff for a four year old.
Back to the taco's...I was cooking and heard her sweet little voice. I peek over at her to see she is videoing me with the Zombie phone. Let me tell you what I heard:
"This is mom cooking meat. (I turn and display an exaggerated smile and nod a few times.) We are having yummy taco's. I love taco's.
Now mom is stirring the meat. It smells good. (another exaggerated smile and nod)
Okay. thank you for watching the broadcast of mom and the meat."
Yes. I nearly peed myself laughing so hard. Mmhumm...mom and the meat. If only...
