My beloved laptop has returned. I can now rejoin the rest of you communicating in the year 2007.
Several times when I was without my computer, I thought "I'll post a blog about that when I get my computer back...." Here are the only two stories that managed to take root in my brain:
1. On the eve of my leaving to visit Japan, I overheard Ryan say to Dylan:
"I think Japan is going to be kinda funny."
"I don't know....but I think they speak Spanish or something."
2. A few days ago, my three year old Dylan sweetly crawled up in the recliner beside me, snuggled in, and looked right in my eyes and said:
Stunned, I asked, "What did you say?"
He calmly replied, "You smell like a donkey."
Then he laughed hysterically. I should have taken this opportunity to tell him it's not nice to tease people like that (if he was indeed teasing), but I was unable to control my laughter/bewilderment enough to teach that lesson. The things that come out of his mouth amaze me. I know they learn by example, but I'm quite certain he's never heard me or his dad tell anyone they smell like a donkey.
"Mo" (grandma) is coming to babysit next week while Jonathan and I take a short trip to Ruidoso, NM to attend a conference with our church leadership. I need to remember to tell Dylan to please not tell his grandmother she smells like a barnyard animal.
Yay! Welcome back...you have to read my last 3 postings...I'd love to hear your comments!
That is great! While you were in Japan I missed reading all the funny things your kids say!!!
WOO HOO!! I am so happy th see you back! I miss the stuff the kids do and say and love reading it on your blog!
I can't wait until next week. Emma and I are counting down the days until we see you all!
Glad you're back, baby! I love Dylan's little comment. Kids are so funny! Nathan's been calling me and Greg and pretty much every inanimate object "bad baby..." We've never called him that or ever heard anyone call him that, so I'm not sure where he picked that up. Probably those kids at school. :)
