Chinese New Year
I decided to forgo making fortune cookies this year and just get Chinese take out for dinner and enjoy their delicious cookies. Too bad the guy didn't put any in the bag. It's really the only reason I eat Chinese food! Anyway, we were talking about the different Chinese signs and which ones we all are. Shaun and Maisey are both boars! I made a joke that they are both bores! I thought it was clever and funny. . . Shaun, not so much. See what I mean? Such a bore! Gage is the year of the ox, which means he should be dependable, calm, and stubborn. Well, we've got the stubborn part down, but we're still working on the calm part. And me, I am the year of the tiger. Supposedly I am hot tempered, impulsive, impatient, but giving. That sounds pretty close to me! And, since 2012 is the year of the dragon, Shaun thought it would be funny to tell the kids that we were having a dragon baby, but he did it in a scary dragon voice. Now Gage is scared of the baby and really thinks I am having a dragon! GREAT!!! He keeps saying, "No dragon baby! Just baby baby!!!" I guess maybe Shaun's not such a bore after all!
