Last Sunday I got a "date" with my two bigs. We went to a local play of Narnia, and Renny had a class mate, who happens to be a boy, starring as an "Ankle Slasher." It was a little bit worrying to see how smitten she was at spotting him and talking to him. Ayy-yaye-yaye. Heaven help us!
Half of my readers know EXACTLY what this is for. The other half - well, consider your ignorance absolute BLISS! Yes friends, a year and a half later, we are still wondering if our little bug brought home some little (as of yet undetected) bugs. And if my pediatrician uses the words "normal toddler diarrhea" one more time, I might just put it in a paper bag and light it on fire on her porch.
Grandma had a girls-only sleepover one night, and then a boys-only sleepover the next night, leaving us with only two kids two nights in a row. This gave me the opportunity to do all those fun kid activities I used to do all the time but just seem too overwhelming with two toddlers. They all loved the extra attention, and both chose a "baking day." I love how Zoom holds his tongue out when concentrating, exactly like his dad.
I was in charge of snacks for Zoom's school Thanksgiving party. Nearly by accident, these apple dippers turned into turkeys before my very eyes. What in the world did we do before Pinterest?
I've never seen a little guy look so cute in footy-jammies, but dang it if he didn't hate every second of them and scream until they were off.
And some of my gorgeous family on Thanksgiving ...
my man really gets into his sports ...
This cute baby boy was born just a few days after Mr T and I got married. Geesh we're getting old!
Considering how much we were missing a certain little boy, we did have a great Thanksgiving, taking gluttony to a whole new level. Oh how we wish we didn't have to go through another holiday without him, but it's looking like that will be the case. Of course, nothing is impossible with God ...
