It's "National Hot Enough For Ya Day"
What a cutie! I’ll send you some cooler weather and some of our rain:-)
Ahhh – someone give that little cutie a lollipop! :) It’s been really hot here in Florida, too, but Wow! nothing close to 115! Stay cool!
As a mother, I love finding these obscure, crazy holidays. Well, at least much of the time. For one thing, I think it’s interesting to see what people have loved enough or considered important enough to create a holiday for. Also, I find them a great inspiration for fun (and sometimes productive) family activities. For instance, on Talk Like a Pirate Day later this year, we’ll have a morning of pirate speech and maybe dress like pirates too. During National Egg month two of my girls (10 and 9) learned to cook eggs a couple of ways and learned the parts of an egg. On Jello Day – you guessed it – Jello with every meal. So, you get the idea. Some are wacky and some best ignored but they can lead to good times and fun memories.
My brother used to live in Phoenix and now here in So. Cal everyone seems to think it’s ok when it’s 100 degrees because….“it’s a dry heat”. I know 100 with humidity feels hotter, but I don’t care if it is a dry heat, 100 degrees is too HOT!
My little daughter is quite a persuasive one herself much like the video. She’s been know to elicit permission for some very questionable things. I’m told when she stays with others for a playdate she will ask for something with a smile and a please and innocent eyes, and when asked if she thinks her mommy would let her have it she says quite convincingly…“oh yes, my mommy lets me have that ALL the time”. I think they give in because of the cute, brash factor and nothing else. She is 7 but has always looked about 2 years younger than her age and is quite cute, so you can imagine, she gets what she wants a lot. It’s after the fact, when I stop to think about things that I says to myself, “why did I just let her get away with that?” I can totally hear her saying like the little girl in the video, “poppy says I can have one right now”. : )
Bobbi, Jello Day sounds nice!
Tammy, I’m so glad someone is having a cooler summer!
Laurie, I appreciate any and all cooler temps sent my way!
AJ, actually it’s been 115 here with the low of 92-95. While I don’t miss the humidity, I would love it to cool down at night some! lol
