Do you ever find it strange how one week will feel like it lasts for three weeks and another week feels like it flew by in two day? This week was a total 180 degree difference from the previous week. Last week was beyond sucky and took forever to end. This week has been amazing, fun, and flew by.
My favorite day this week had to be Wednesday, because it was a fun filled day with my son. Wednesday was the first day of his spring break, so he wanted to go to the gym with me to run and swim. He is a bit of a gym rat like his mom. It takes us an hour to get to the gym I work at, so we always spend that time talking and I always find that I learn something new from him during our car trips. For example, I asked my son to tell me something interesting…His response, “Did you know that sardines and sea horses burp?” See…I can always learn something new from my kid.
Once we got to the gym, Web ran upstairs to hit the track to run his St. Baldricks Virtual Race. He has been beyond excited to run this race for weeks now. Since my 7 year old kid is now faster than I am, he was kind enough to slow down his pace so mom could keep up with him. I really could not be prouder of my son. He is such an amazing kid and athlete, and I’m so glad that he loves running and finds it fun and exciting right now.
After his run and swimming we headed to downtown Minot to Big Time Bistro for lunch with Rita and Devin. Big Time Bistro has become my new favorite restaurant, and I cannot get enough of this place. Rita has been telling us how amazing their burgers are, so my son got one of their cheese burgers, and I got my favorite chicken bruschetta sandwich. Our meals came with fresh made potato chips too!
With our stomachs full of yummy food, we headed off to Barnes and Noble to look for books. My son found a neat little book full of weird animal facts which he read to me during our drive home. I was learning a lot from this new book during our ride, until I discovered I needed to start reading the books my son wants before he buys them.
Here is what happened…
“Mom, here is one about pigs…A pig’s organism lasts for 30 minutes. Wait, that doesn’t make any sense. What do they mean by organism?” You can only imagine the look on my face as I began to realize that my son pronounced orgasm as organism. I gave him my standard response when I don’t want to give him a truthful answer, “I don’t know what they meant. I’ll have to look it up later when I get a chance.” Thankfully he forgets about me looking things up most of the time. I had him put the book down till we got home and could read it together. I’ll leave you with a few interesting animal facts to share with your friends…
- Some lions mate over 50 times a day. (Real Quickies, They should talk to the pig)
- A hippos milk is pink
- Turtles can breath through their butts…My son’s new favorite fact
- Polar bears are left handed
- Cattle are the only mammals to pee backwards
- You are more likely to get attacked by a cow than a shark
- The animal responsible for the most human deaths worldwide is the mosquito.
