Here are three stories that made me laugh and miss my kids a lot lately. Erin was kind enough to write these up and email to me, so we could share them with you.
Will: Mama, when I'm a grown-up, will I sleep in your bed and you'll
sleep somewhere else?
Erin: No, when you're a grown-up you probably won't live with me anymore.
Will: Who will I live with?!
Erin: Maybe by yourself, or maybe with a roommate, or maybe with your
wife and kids.
Will: NO! I want to always live with you! Can I always live with you?!
Of course I told him that he could always live with me. :)
Every night in the bath, after I wash Will's hair and face he washes
his penis and butt by himself. His routine is pretty straightforward:
stand up, pump soap from the dispenser into his hand, lather, wash his
penis, wash his butt, sit and "swish" to rinse. I was cleaning the
bathroom while they were in the bath tonight, and in the mirror I
caught a glimpse of Hallie swishing her butt around in the water. I
turned around, and caught the entire show - she stood up, (attempted)
to pump soap from the dispenser, washed where a penis would be if she
had one, washed her butt, and sat down to swish once again. She went
through this process, from start to finish, seven times. She has a very
clean butt right now.
Hallie's first nine words, in the order she learned them: Dada, NO,
bye, hi, Will, roar, banana, outside, and, wait for it... SHOES.
That's right, shoes. That's my girl!
