Hello, Tuesday! We’ve had an awesome week of vacation, being separated from our technology most of the time, hands and feet turning all pruny in Lake Norman. Today it’s back to reality, but here are a few of the things I managed to write down this week. Enjoy!
J, matter-of-factly : I just like calling my cousin “bro”.
J: I made a telescope! (a bunch of square magnets with holes in the middle all in a row)
Hubby: How far can you see?
J: I can see all the way to the clock. And you can’t see anything without it but I can see really far with it.
Me: At least he has the right idea what a telescope is?
D: *kisses J*
J: He’s giving me love kisses! I’m getting covered in love kisses!
J: I’ll make you a rainbow out of these blocks. You just make sure they don’t match and that’s how you make a rainbow.
Me: Yeah, that’s almost it.
D’s new words:
Pickey Moss=Mickey Mouse
J: Gon Gon (his grandad) I have something important to telled you. Your food is really good.
EK: I don’t like it when people jump on my bed.
Me: Then why do you jump on your bed?
J: Mama, daddy, do you speak Chinese?
Me: Ni hao ma? (Which means “how are you?”)
J: Ne hsu ma hsu hsu ma ma eeeeeee! Chineeeeeeeese!
EK, bringing me an envelope: Mama, can I open this antelope?
J’s new thing is repetition games. Such as: when he’s putting on his clothes, he holds up each item, “Is this my shirt? Is this my pants? Is this my socks?” until we’ve affirmed each item with its correct name. Or he will hold up some blocks, one by one, “Is this a square? Is this a square? Is this a square?!” with increasing excitement each time. This morning it was doing several different actions/sounds and asking, “Is this loud? Is this loud?”
What silly or weird things do your kids do?
