My Brain is Full.

It really is, y'all.  I mean, I don't have an above-average amount of stuff on my plate.  I work full time, I'm a mom, that's about it.  And that, my friends, is all I can handle.  I don't care about politics, I don't care about current events, I DO NOT care about CrownHeights.info, and I actually backwards care about celebrities.  Like, I care so very little that there is actually a mystical force in the universe that forces them to care about me, a little bit.
That's why I have nothing to write about.  My job is pretty mundane, and that is A-OK with me.  I actually misplace my cellphone for days at a time and when I find it, I have no missed calls.  Friday was sort of interesting in that the store got SO MUCH internet traffic that it borked our internal systems (or something?) and our intertubes were down for an hour and a half.  On a four hour day.  Nice.
My kids are awesome, but everybody thinks their kids are awesome.  I mean, I know I'm actually right and my kids really ARE awesome, but still, it doesn't make for super interesting writing, but I'll give it a go anyway.
Izzy is little and delicious and hillarious.  His pronunciation is getting better, but he still has baby malapropisms like calling Mickey Mouse "Bickey Moff," and the Mickey Firetruck that plays the MM March is the "Bee-tee-why, Bee-tee-why."
Moo likes to try to tell knock-knock jokes like,
Knock Knock!
Who's there?
Mister Mister Underpants!
Mister Mister Underpants, who?
Mister Mister Underpants in the eyeball.
And then you have to pretend to laugh.
Izzy wants to do everything his brother does, so he tells knock-knock jokes too.  They go like this:
Who's there?
Oo dare? Booeykeeyee uhhh.
Blueberry Kitty, who?
Hi Tatty!

While Knock-knock jokes might not be  Moo's forte, he's doing really great in school.  At parent teacher conferences, his Morah's said that for reading groups, both English and Hebrew, they have like 25 mins allotted to learn the lesson. The only problem Moo is encountering in school is that it only takes him 5 minutes to absorb the lesson, and then he's bored for 20, which leads to behavior problems.  They can't move him ahead yet because he is learning basic phonics in both languages and he needs that in order to go onto the next group.  My kid's too smart.  Woe is me. 

And there. I've run out of interesting things.  I'm tired and spaced out and that's about it.

You know? I am so glad to hear this. I'm so glad your radio silence isn't due to tragedy in any form. It's 'the holiday season' and many people are struggling with family or money or something. I'm glad to hear you are well.

You sound a lot like me. Nothing much going on, aside from kidlet funnies. Being computer-less has an effect on my LJ output, too. lol

Glad to hear things are good with you, and Moo and Izzy are wonderful! I never get tired of M & I stories. Of course, I love Yael stories too, so def keep those coming.

Sometimes I feel like I need more memory space in my brain.
