Danny telling Susanne all about one of the parents bringing a pet in to show the kids at school, "Mama, it was the biggest snake you never saw!" Indeed.
Guess we'll have to work on the whole never/ever thing, but it was super adorable to overhear.
I've taught my 2 year old to bellow "it's a scorcher out there!" With feeling. I may have accidentally created a monster, -)
Looks like it's "Take Your Kid to Work Cuz There is No Electricity at Summer School Day". That's kind of a catchy...
My boys shower me with gifts every day. Love, affection, humor etc... I just wish they hadn't showered me with their fevers, sore throats and other fun infections that we've spent the past several weeks dealing with. So now they are both on antibiotics for ear infections, and I'm well, I don't know, feeling pretty darn ugh.
Extricating oneself from a small toddler bed without waking up your (finally sleeping) feverish, demanding, grumpy two year old is not for the lighthearted. Nor in all honesty for anyone weighing more than 50 lbs. (I've attempted this maneuver 3 times in the past 24 hours with varying levels of success.)
So today I made Benji one of my childhood favorites--peanut butter and jelly on saltines. Except his was sunflower butter and Palmer's All Fiber All Fruit on whole grain saltines. That's progress right?
We normally use regular band aids, but today I picked up a box of Toy Story ones on sale. Benji was so excited, I was scared for a sec that he was going to purposely give himself an "owie" so we could crack it open right away. ;-)
"Bujeezus". That thing that gets scared out of you when you sleepily open your eyes to find your two year old staring at you.
Screaming in response is not recommended.
The boys think I let them watch cartoons on weekend mornings because I love them. But it's really because I love reading the newspaper in peace. And them ;)
|Su took a great Instagram pic of the boys when they were finally reunited after a week of being apart while Danny was at Nana's house. Aren't they just the sweetest!|
