06:52 pm: Overheard at the Wright’s Household

It's hard to be a mommy away from home. I went away a weekend ago to visit a friend for the evening. John called:

John: "What do I feed the kids?"

Me: "Chicken nuggets. Put them on a plate. Put them in the microwave for four minutes."

Very easy. Can't be messed up.

About half an hour later, Juss called…in tears.

"Mommy, my special blue plate. I put it in the microwave…and it melted!"

It NEVER occurred to me to tell him FOUR MINUTES was for TWENTY nuggets. Not four nuggest on a plastic  plate.

Luckily, this story ended happily. IKEA still had more of the same plastic plates.

I went camping last night with Orville and The Cherubim. I left a pizza for John to warm for Juss. (The Princess had Chinese food.)

Very easy. Can't be messed up.

I get a call from John. "The timer went off. I was busy. I asked Juss to ask his sister to turn off the oven. He said: "I can do it!" and ran downstairs.

"He turned off the TIMER."  Pizza ruined.

(Hence my previous post about getting pizza at a fancy place.)

At the campout, The Cherubim kept exclaming "Great Snakes!"

When we got home, he exclaimed, "By the Power of Grayskull!"

Oh, dear.

When my dear Uncle Harold got one of those new-fangled microwaves, he put a baked potato in for 30 minutes! It caught on fire and melted the microwave. Thankfully, the house wasn't harmed.
