I don’t care about football and most of the sports but my husband and now my son are into it.  So, either I like it or not if there is a Super Bowl, the TV is on and some years even with a lot of company in our house.  I don’t usually watch it and not even interested in the so expected star commercials.  Last night wasn’t any different.  The only part that I watched was Madonna’s half time show.  My husband insisted that I watch it.

Mishka asked us who is Madonna? 
He got to see who she is.  Then he said that she was singing one song wrong because he saw it on YouTube how it is done correctly by some guys. :) We had a long argument that Madonna was the first one to sing that song and whoever is doing it on YouTube is only making out their own adaptation.

She looked like she was still in her 20th only moving a lot slower.  She is over 50 now and it made me think, why celebrities  don’t want to grow up and develop more grown up art that takes them further ahead instead of making them stuck in the old-young?

I wished to hear a new song, see something new and unique, at least one piece out of several.  The show was great, spectacular-spectacular with old Madonna and her old songs where she wanted to look young.  I don't know, but there is something that bothers me about our culture of wanting to be frozen in one period of our lives and not being able to embrace all ages as they come.  Yes, we do grow and get old and even die, why fight this concept?  Who are we fooling?

чего-то хочется написать но ничего интересного на ум не приходит. 
Как прошел сегодня день?  Да почти весь день спала, пирожков напекла, на коньках всей семьёй и даже с моим папой ходили. 

Я сегодня прям как фигуристка каталась, была уж очень уверенна в себе даже заднюю перебежку несколько раз попробовала как в детстве и ничего... -- получилось на удивление.  Мой папа (ему за 70) гонял по катку с Мишкой и Борей.  Мишелка то со мной то с Борей, а потом дедушка устал и с ней сидел на скамеечке пока мы раскатывались.  Устали, ноги болели, пришли домой и мы с Мишелкой спать пошли. Проспали 3 часа.

Проснулись, пообедали все вместе и потом смотрели по телевизору как профессиональные хoкеисты дурака валяют в "старты надежд" играют.

Мишел почему-то тортик назвала "диетой".  Она показывала на торт и говорила: "диета"  Она тортик не хотела, так я сама его доела и сказала ей что теперь пойду на диету.
Вот так день и прошел, а полная сушилка и машина белья с пятницы стоит, я совсем разленилась, завтра займусь (вернее сегодня).

Уже почти час ночи, надо опять спать идти.

On Saturday, Michael asked me if we can go ice skating.  He got into the groove of skating after going to the ice center in CA.  I checked our community center’s website and learned that they have open ice and the theme of the day was Sun day.  That meant that if you dress in yellow, you get 50% off.  It sounded even better.  So, our whole family went to our community center ice skating.  Including 2 year old Michelle.  I was curious if they would have her size skates.  We found pretty close to her size she is 6 now but ice skates were 8.

After a lot of conversations about bugs and how to get rid of them from our house and especially kids’ rooms because Michelle (18m) has an allergic reaction to something that we don’t even know, Michael (7) announced a war on bugs. 

When I came to the daycare from work, Michael went outside to play and then came back to tell me very proudly that he has been killing a lot of bugs.  I did not like that attitude and gave him a lecture that bugs are alive things and if they don’t bother him, he should not touch them.  I told him that they are live creatures only very little.  I asked him to imagine if there would’ve been giants and he would’ve been as small as those bugs to the giants.  Then I asked him if he would like if giants would be able to kill, etc…. 

I asked him if he feels sorry about killing live creatures and if he has any compassion and empathy for live things.  Listen what he said back to me very loudly:

-THEY ARE NOT LIVE!!!!  THEY DON’T HAVE PENIS!!!!

My mom was changing Michelle’s diaper next to us and she heard this conversation.  We both started laughing and tried to explain that bugs may or may not have penis they are still live things.

PS.  Boris finally took Michael to the Twins Game today!!! Twins won 6:0 and Michael loved it.  He stayed through the whole game.

I am not a big fan of soccer but it had been pretty exciting to follow Soccer World Cup 2010.  Well, it is exciting to follow it every time.  The most exciting world cup for me was in 1998 when I studied in London and we went to Paris during the World Cup in France.
