What do Tires, Burger King and Homeschooling have in common?

I may have said this before.. I don't remember. The Man is the kind of guy that handles things, and I really appreciate that about him. I like that he believes there are "man" jobs and "woman" jobs. 14 years ago his classification of what a woman can do and what a man can do made me crazy. I was brought up by a single mother, and a extremely absent father. My mother made sure I knew how to do all kinds of "man" jobs, because, "You may not have a man around to take care of you!" That's one of the reasons I fell in love with him, because he took care of the junk I don't want to handle..

I don't know if you remember the tire mishap in the spring when The Man had to come change my tire: Walking Tour of Ottawa Since that time I have had the spare on my front driver side . Sunday my other tire started losing air. You can imagine my surprise when yesterday the man told me I needed to take my car to get new tires and the oil change. In my mind I was freaking out.. "Doesn't he know that HE is suppose to do this?" He set a presidense years ago when he handed all of that for me!

I like Monday morning to just be about school in my house. It seems like if we start school right on Monday's.. it will be smooth the rest of the week. I knew they wouldn't get anything done if I wasn't there.. so I loaded the kids up in the car and we headed to Wal-Mart in Gardner to get new tires and a oil change.

I called and found out that Burger King in Gardner has Wifi.. so the kids and I did a little school while we waited on the car to be done.

Here's #2 looking something up on his computer while his

math book is waiting for him to finish what he started.

Here's #2 working on her spelling worksheet.

The Man and I are going to talk about this whole car care thing.. hopefully he'll go back to being Ward Cleaver ūüôā (Leave it to Beaver) after our conversation.

This is my Husband Gregory…

My children and I love movies.¬† Mostly stupid comedies, where we can quote them until the Man says “UNCLE”.¬† In case you didn’t know, The Man’s name is not Gregory. That line is from one of our favorite movies “Talladega Nights, The Ballad of Ricky Bobby”.¬† Jean Giraud the formula one driver says; “Everyone, this is my husband Gregory.”¬† For some reason this make my son laugh and laugh and laugh… #2 is like that.

We have a cat we name Haskell, as in Eddie Haskell from “Leave it to Beaver”.¬† Ever since Ricky Bobby has come into our lives we no longer call him Haskell. He is now “Gregory”.

Here’s how it usually goes..

#2 Picks Gregory Up and holds him like a baby

How sweet…

They get cheek to cheek¬† and he says “This is my husband Gregory”

And they spin as they were in love.

It makes me laugh every time he does it.¬† Stupid I know..¬† Another movie we love is “Austin Powers The Spy who Shagged me”¬† This movie has Dr. Evil, Mini Me and mini Mr.¬†Bigglesworth (a hairless cat)¬† Dr. Evil tells Mini Me:¬† “No, Mini-Me, we do not gnaw on our kitty, we just stroke him and love him.”

We Do not Gnaw on our Kitty (You can hear it here)

Which brings us to this:  I was downloading the the photos off my camera, and found this one..

#4 getting ready to gnaw on the kitty!

I laughed so hard.. I thought I was going to wet my pants.  My kids are just weird like this.  They get it from their father.
