Outside my window…I see the light on in Daxson’s office and am wondering when he’s going to call it a night.
I am thankful…for dimpled baby hands.
I am thinking…reuniting with family is always so precious.
I am wondering…are Gavin and Andrew having a conversation here? If they are, I imagine it goes something like this…
Gavin: Is this to eat?
Andrew: Even if it is, you should try your fist instead. Mine is quite tasty.
Gavin: Maybe later. I need to figure out how this thing works exactly.
Andrew: Try flipping it inside out.
Gavin: Oh, yeah, I think I see what you mean. If I just turn it this way…
From the learning rooms…oh “g”osh, we’re having such a “g”reat week at school. It’s G week…I’ll share details soon!
In the kitchen…fish and lentils.
I am wearing…gray shorts and a pink t-shirt, ready for bed.
I am hoping…for cold weather soon.
I am reading…Raise Happy Children…Raise them Saints!
I am hearing…the fan. That’s it. Silence really is golden.
Around the house…a little postpartum nesting, if there is such a thing. I am cleaning out toys and kitchen tools and clothes and, well, pretty much anything I can get my hands on that I don’t think anyone will miss. Note to self: Do not ask the kids for help in choosing toys to get rid of. Here’s a recent conversation with Joseph. Me: I’m going to get rid of this xylophone. No one uses it. Joseph: Oh, yes, Mommy, I use it. Watch this. (he hits a few keys) See I use it. I’m using it now. Me: But Joseph, you haven’t touched it in ages. It’s a baby toy. It only has four keys on it. I think we can part with it. Joseph: Oh no, I am using it now. (He then carried it around with him the rest of the day, afraid I might snatch it up when he put it down…it’s now back in the toy box, unused.)
One of my favorite things…early bedtimes.
Here are some pictures for thought I am sharing…from our trip to the pumpkin patch a few weekends ago.
