Boy, was I ever glad that our school district had a two-hour delay today -due to the sub-zero temperatures, ya know. And baby, it really was cold here last night and this morning too. I don't know what the official temps were for this area but I saw on Facebook a cousin of mine who lives about 8 miles from me said her thermometer was registering a -13 and a young man who lives here in town was grumbling about it being -5 here in the village this a.m. BRRRRR! For sure!
But aside from that, I mentioned to Mandy about how late Maya was awake last night and how she about drove Uncle Clate and Gram half-nuts with her incessant questions too. She didn't get to sleep till at least midnight so that 2-hour delay then at least assured her of getting a good night's sleep after all.
When I mentioned to Mandy though about her energy levels and such, she said she knew the reason behind that too.
Seems yesterday -when the kids had their normal Sunday visitation with their Dad -that he had given Miss Maya a full bottle of Dr. Pepper soda which apparently is as laced with caffeine as is the good old Mountain Dew my son loves to suck down on a constant basis.
Well, I'm glad that question is now resolved as I was beginning to think that perhaps at some point in time -a few years back -that Mandy had maybe overdosed on those prenatal vitamins or some such thing like that!
Always a good thing though to learn how this or that food substance may react in her or in her brother too, ya see.
And you can bet your bottom dollar that I'll sure as heck not be giving that child any Dr. Pepper any time in the future.
She asks more than enough questions when she's ingested stuff from her regular diet and I definitely don't need anything to give her more need to interrogate me -or anyone else here, for that matter!
