I am so sorry that I was “In Absentia” yesterday. It was a good thing for me not to post. It would have said something like: Today I feel like crap. I have a nasty cold. My husband feels like crap. He just had surgery. I wish it was tomorrow…..
So you see? Much better that I didn’t write yesterday. I am feeling MUCH better day, albeit quite congested. Ben isn’t feeling so hot still:( We think he is fighting off an infection but he has antibiotics and is resting a lot so hopefully he’ll start feeling better soon.
The boys and I went on a picnic today! They were SO excited that they wanted to eat lunch at 10:30am:) We went with our friend who lives upstairs and has two little ones of her own. We are hoping to arrange a marriage contract soon between her daughter and one of my sons. The only problem is, who to choose? Ah well, I suppose it would best for them to make that decision themselves but it would be really fun to get along famously with my son’s in-laws!
Speaking of my sons (because that’s what this blog is all about, right?!), Zakkai calls everyone a “he.” He’s only two, which is our excuse for everything, so it’s pretty funny. This morning, I listened in on a very funny conversation between the boys.
Zakkai: “He (referring to me) wants to bring me a toy.”
Samuel: “No, Zakkai. It isn’t “he.” Mommy is not a he.”
Samuel: “Mommy is a SHE. Mommy is a girl.”
Zakkai: “Oh. Mommy is a gir-uhl?”
Samuel: “Yes, so mommy is not a he.”
Zakkai: “Whoiiii?” (that is totally how he says “why”)
Samuel: “Because God made her that way!”
So, there you have it! I am a gir-uhl and God made me that way!
Here are the boys playing with their train table, tracks set up by yours truly:) No, Zakkai isn’t wearing a bib, it’s one of his blankies tied on. That would be daddy….
