The other morning I awoke to find Spencer making me breakfast (under Sam's supervision). There on the counter waiting for me was what he called "deluxe toast" - a slice of wheat toast covered with a mixture of butter, orange marmalade and blackberry jam, topped with maraschino cherries. Yes, he had carefully placed four of those unnaturally red little gems right on top. Good morning!
Laney ran around for the rest of the morning telling everyone, including me, "time out to you - wight NOW!" Handful does not even begin to describe this one.
Then there was Owen, who after dropping off the little chef at school, sweetly asked:
"Mama, how did you hurt your hair?"
"Did you hurt your hair?"
"No Owen, why do you ask?"
"Because you have that Band-Aid in your hair."
"Oh, it's a barrette to hold my hair back!"
Won't be wearing that one again.
I thought I would include these recent photos in this post - seems appropriate. Lots of little things have been falling out of the front of the dishwasher recently, including roasted pumpkin seeds:
We also found this on the refrigerator shortly after Spencer birthday dinner. He loves prime rib and chose to go out to a restaurant, Weber's, for his birthday dinner.
Translation: Let's go to Weber's - I'm hungry. Order meat.
Now, we were missing some letters, so Spencer made some, including the "R" that he wrote on a napkin and taped to the refrigerator, the rest is just bad spelling and he comes by that naturally. There is never a dull moment when the little people are at work.
