We thought it would be fun to take the kids out to Pei Wei for dinner, followed by "Kung Fu Panda" at home. So that's what we did tonight. Pulling into the parking lot, Clayton said, "Who's ready for Pee Wee? Pee Wee's big adventure?" The kids don't even know what that means, but they laughed anyway, especially when I asked Olivia, "Are you ready for Pee Wee, you little Pee Wee?" Hannah, of course, had second helpings at dinner, Nina ate a couple noodles (with very awkward chopsticks), and Ben ate about 35 fortune cookies. He also took home an empty Chinese take out box because those things are AWES! I'm sure it will be full of treasures within the next few days. Kung Fu Panda was cute, by the way. I loved the animation.
My fortune: "You love playing to a crowd." What kind of stupid fortune is that? Plus it's a lie.
Hannah's fortune: "You are often entertaining and delightful." True, so true.
Ben's fortune, (or one of the 35): "Wise men learn from fools, and foolish men never learn from the wise." ("HUH? What does that mean, Mom?")
Nina's fortune: "Your principles will lead you on your road to success." Really?
Clayton's fortune: "New financial opportunities and success are in your path." Sweet! He always gets one like that.
Clayton said, "What if you really believed in this stuff?" Seriously.
