My Lil Pumpkins

In Case You're Wondering (Overheard at Kay's Nursery School)

In case you're wondering, these are the two times the name of Jesus was invoked at my daughter's (Jewish) nursery school.

Incident #1:
Caregiver A: School is closed tomorrow.
Caregiver B: Again, tomorrow? Really? There's another holiday?
Caregiver A: Yes, there's another holiday."
Caregiver B: Sweet Jesus, have mercy! I can't believe they're having another day off!

Incident #2:
Mother A: (Reading a sign) There's another meeting?
Mother B: Yes, I just read it too, I guess there's another meeting tomorrow morning.
Mother A: Jesus Christ! How many meetings are there going to be?

Jesus is Alive

Number of times I have heard the name Jesus at Kay's current (Jewish) nursery school: 2
Number of months Kay has attended this school: 2

Number of times I heard the name Jesus at Kay's Chabad nursery school: 0
Number of months Kay attended Chabad nursery school: 10

Number of times I would hear the name Jesus if Kay went to the Chabad nursery school for the next 100 months: 0

Halloween - What to Give the Trick or Treaters?

Halloween. I've got a scary skull ninja and an adorable scarecrow living at my house. I can't wait for the trick or treating. Last year, I gave out stickers. I don't think we got anyone over the age of four at our apartment house in New York City, so these were a big hit.

I didn't see anything wrong with giving out stickers.

But then the huz came home from work and saw the little bowl of stickers, and said "What? We're the people giving out STICKERS? And no candy? I can't be those people."

He vowed to "make things right" this year. I said, "If you want candy, you need to go get some. I like being the healthy and wholesome house, even if it's the healthy and wholesome, covered with toilet paper, house."

This year we're giving out Play-doh, unless the man of the house gets candy between now and Friday.

What do you think? Is candy the only acceptable offering to the trick-or-treating ghouls and goblins?

An old email i came across from my mother

"...I got Kay a Kenzo suede coat- I'm pretty sure she'll like it and it will go well with her evening black bag and brown dog...
In case you're wondering, dear readers, the Kay mentioned above, was two-years-old when this email was written.

And also in case you're wondering, the coat did in fact go quite well with both her evening bag and her brown dog.
