Here is a conversation that Jordan and Mommy had on Tuesday as we pulled in the driveway after school
Jordan : Can we get a grasshopper? I really want one.
Mommy: What are you talking about?
Jordan: A grasshopper to cut with.
Mommy: I don’t know what you are talking about. ( I am picturing some kind of lawn trimming device or maybe the Mantis garden thing that I saw on TV.
Jordan: You know-a grasshopper.
Mommy: I really have no idea what you mean.
Jordan: You know-a cricket!
It then dawns on Mommy that Jordan is referring to the Cricut scrapbooking tool that we had watched an infomercial on about two or three months ago
Jordan: Please Mommy. I really want it. Please can we get it!
(Because we have an extra $300 lying around.)
Mommy: Why do you want a Cricut?
Jordan: So I can cut.
Mommy: What do you want to cut?
Jordan: A b-i-g, g-i-a-n-t, number 1!

The tooth fairy had to visit while we were at my Aunt Robbie’s house because we went up to see my cousin Taylor in her high school play “Bye, Bye, Birdie” (she did great, but the play is kind of weird). We had to put the tooth fairy box (thanks Jen for leading that craft) in the hall under a pillow because “the dogs were sleeping in the bedroom with Jordan and Taylor and the tooth fairy might be allergic to the dogs and sneeze” (or Jordan was wired, but Taylor was tired and wanted to go to sleep. She was supposed to put the money in the box after he fell asleep. We came up with the story in order to get the box in the hall where the “Tooth Fairy” [or Mommy] could put the money in). Jordan was excited to wake up to find $5 and a golden dollar in place of his tooth. Daddy was reassured that the tooth fairy only gives that much money for the first tooth and each subsequent tooth will be much less. Mommy thinks that losing your first tooth is super exciting and that’s why the tooth fairy put that much money in the box. The golden dollar was a bonus for being at Aunt Robbie’s house.

Bugsy (the guinea pig) was really funny and his dance was funny. I liked when it was raining gumballs. I liked the part when Bugsy was eating the hamburgers and then running on the treadmill. The best part was the end when the mean man and lady had to get Bugsy some marshmallows and the lady would have to clean his cage. The End
Mommy’s review: The movie was very funny. Contrary to what you might think from Jordan’s review Bugsy is not the only character in the movie. Adam Sandler and other people are in the movie and also have funny parts.
