I'm sorry for no updates in, like, forever. I loathe the excuse "I'm too busy!" -- everyone is busy. For some reason, this week has been exceptionally trying around here. So you get one quick kid story per kid and then I'm out.
Oh I should warn you that neither story is funny at all -- they're more for character development.
Lucy: What's a Bamo?
Me: A bamo?
Lucy: A bama?
Me: Oh, what's Obama?
Lucy: Yeah! (duh, Mom, that's what I was saying)
Me: He's going to be the president of our country.
Lucy: What's a president?
Me: The president is who the people of our country choose to be our leader.
Lucy: Are YOU going to be president?
Me: Oh, no. No. I won't be president.
Lucy: But you go to that Leadership Program!
Well, I about fell on the floor. Her grasp of the language really astounds me. And, I mean, she's totally right. What a kid.
On Monday we were at an open gym with the Watsons, and Ed all of a sudden started crying and ran out into the hallway. I followed him and found him leaning his forehead against the vending machine.
Me: What's wrong, Eddie? What's going on?
Ed: I'm sad. I'm sad because my friends do not play to me. I want them to play with me.
I assured him that the Watson boys would LOVE to play with him, but that he was going to have to just jump in and get involved in whatever they were working on. He cheered up right away, went back in the gym, and joined the boys. It's just amazing to me how we can all communicate so well. It's so fun hanging out with these little people!
OK really, have to run. I'm so sorry.
