Munch Madness – 08/11/2016

Hey Folks,

I wanted to tell you that Munch is back and better than ever. Thank you all for your well wishes and concerns last week with his scarlet fever. We’re now enjoying the last days of summer before school starts. I can’t believe how old this kid is getting and some of the funny things he says. I wanted to share some…

When talking about his swimming lessons to my mom…

Nana, I don’t know. I don’t think I’m good at this swimming thing.

When trying to explain to me why he got so dirty at camp the other day…

Mommy, it’s because I was climbing all over Jesus. The Camp Director says “Munch, that wasn’t Jesus.” He replied, “Uh huh. Yes, it was. He had a beard”.

When getting ready to return to camp after being out sick for a week…

I’m not sure I’m ready. I think I need another day.

When asked why he doesn’t like swim lessons…

I can’t hear them when I’m underwater. It’s too much noise.

When asked why he got paint all over his hands…

Because I’m an artist mommy. That’s what we artists do.


Told you my kid was hilarious. Well, we’re gearing up for his first guitar lesson on Saturday and I’ll post about that next week. I’m excited to see how he enjoys it. He did enjoy the Howard County Fair on Sunday.

He wanted to get on the roller coaster. I didn’t think he was ready. He begged and I consented. We got on that roller coaster and lost his dang mind. He started screaming and carrying on “I want to get off now!” “Mommy, please tell them to stop it!” He was crying real tears too. Scared him out of his mind.

Yeah. I couldn’t believe it either. SMH. Kids! “Munch, you are going to have to wait until the ride is over” I said.  He proceeded to scream death in my ears the whole time. Learned Lesson – No more roller coasters for Munch. EVER!

But, there were other things and moments he enjoyed and I loved being there with him. He’s growing up so quickly and it’s important that we make time to do things together. I don’t ever want to miss out on his life.
