The kids are pretty fun right now….except when they’re not, of course. Like when Naomi deposited the hand towel in the toilet this morning, then scooped it out, dribbling toilet water to and fro. Or when she was too tired to settle for her nap and worked herself up to a puke, spewing chewed up cheese and banana and stomach acid all over poor Charlotte bunny.
“You know, MY mom has LOTS of money.” Milo made this astonishing announcement as we were driving up to Arthur’s pass last weekend. I might need to back up and explain…
That morning we couldn’t find his Spiderman sunglasses, realized that we haven’t seen them in ages, and concluded that we might need to buy some more. “I got those sunglasses in America,” Milo remembered. “We could go back to America to buy some more.” We chuckled.
Jeremiah: “You know, it costs a lot of money to get to America.”
Milo: “You know, MY mom has LOTS of money.”
More giggles from the front seat. “Where’s all my money, Milo?”
Milo: “In the bank.”
Milo is talking up a storm, and isn’t shy to give a new word a confident try. He pointed out a “falin” while we were biking, and his finger toward the sky gave me the clue I needed to come up with “falcon.”
