Things that make you go hmm...

while riding in a van with 4 preschoolers. I tell ya, I could make up a list. Here's but one of them.

(on the way to preschool)

Miles: We're LATE! You need to go one hundred and forty miles per hour!

Me: Honey, this minivan does not GO 140 miles per hour.

Miles: Yes it does! It says it! (pointing to the speedometer) Right there!

Me: (Giggling) Well, yes it does, doesn't it?

Me:(Giggling... without ceasing... that's in the Bible somewhere, isn't it?)

Truly, I've never thought about how funny this is: Why does the speedometer on my mini. van. go all the way to 140mph? My practical Mom Honda Odyssey. 140 mph.

Is it just me, or does that strike anyone else as positively giggle-icious?

Maybe I should sign me up for the Mommy Minneapolis 500.

*Don't forget Foody Friday this week is desserts!!! Bring us all your yummy favorite dessert recipes!

That is so funny. I love Miles. When my cruise control got stuck and I almost DIED, thank you very much, my little Ford went up to about 120 until I got smart and just pushed, with both feet, on the brakes. Then I went down to about 80-90.

It's for when you have to outrun the Feds before they search your car and send you off to the big house, of course.
