Seal the Door

My son had been playing an game all day yesterday – something about nuclear fallout and having a shelter. His room was the shelter. The kids were running around the house and pretending stuff was poison laughing and playing. It was great! At one point, I even played along – “Before the nuclear blast hits, come eat your lunch.”

Fast forward to bed time, my son’s room looks like a bomb had gone off! I commented on such and he gave me this chagrined look, “Well, I kind of had to because I was scrounging for parts to make my door seal so this could be the nuclear shelter.”

He rigged a light switch from grandpa to pieces from his electronics kit and taped it to the wall next to his door! That little green light on the orange thingy actually turns on! I was cracking up and impressed. This kid.

My Kind of Ordinary

Bunnies!

My daughter built a bunny habitat complete with shredded paper. She’s been diligently taking care of her bunnies nearly all day. She’s even taken one to bed with her tonight.

Math and Magic

My oldest son spent nearly the entire morning programming and drawing in Scratch a meter to reach his goal of purchasing the outrageous builder subscription on Roblox. He did loads of math learning how to divide his monetary goal up evenly, and how long it’d take him mowing lawns while giving to God and saving.

He then moved onto making magic wands (or swords?) with Legos. That sweet boy tried to wave his wand to make all my pain go away.

Imagination to Design

My younger son and I had a lovely conversation at bedtime revolving around how to go about designing things. He now aspires to this Roblox subscription and is noodling what shirts to make. How do you imagine something and make it real?

… and Poop

I get asked a lot of questions throughout the day. However, my favorite question, by far, was this: “Does God poop?”

I responded, “No, but if he does, it’s perfect.”

I had a heating pad on for a while, and then got very chilled when I took it off. I commented as such to my son, and then said I needed to get a jacket, “even though that’s ridiculous in this heat wave.”

My wise son replied, “Go outside, Mom.”

LOL! 😆

I did! Much better now, thanks.

Try Not to Laugh

This is an appropriate title for my first stab at a reaction video complete with video editing!

Enjoy!

I created the video capturing with OBS – my husband/son introduced me to this tool. I edited the video with Adobe Premiere Pro and created the intro/outro with Adobe Spark. All the while getting near constant input from my son on how to actually do it all! I have experience in graphics editing and Photoshop, but nothing to do with videos. That’s a whole new world!

Update: My son (12) uses the free version of Resolve for video editing, and states that “it is the best editor in my life.”

My son discovered we have both Sprite and lemonade. He loves mixing those two. He’s all excited and asks me, “Mom, what’s your favorite mix.” I’m sure someone will call my bad parenting skills to the stand, but I at least I answered truthfully – “vodka and cranberry juice.” I love my boy! He nodded his head and responded rather seriously, “Ah.” LOL

I’m working on my blog, and I hear my daughter helping my son with a computer glitch of some kind: “Oh! All you have to do is Alt-Carl-Delete.”

Out for Drinks

A couple of nights ago, I was out for a few drinks with some friends at the Marriott Hotel and I had a couple of cocktails and some rather nice red wine.

Knowing full well I may have been slightly over the limit, I did something I’ve never done before: I took a bus home. Sure enough, I passed a police road block but as it was a bus, they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident, which was a real surprise; as I have never driven a bus before and am not sure where I got it.
