I have a lot of other things to talk about, but I want to make sure that I do not leave out these important events. Just when I think things cannot get any busier they do. Last week we had Mother's Day, Baby Dedication Day, Lily's Re-adoption, a Mother's Day Picnic at school, my YPO meeting at my house, Jilliana got strep, a meeting with the principal of the school we may or may not be attending next year, extra practices for the Mother's Day Program at Church plus our normal week of swimming, school, choir, gymnastics and laundry.
I will leave tonight with two little glimpses into some of the things I get to hear every day.
Tonight on the way home from Gymnastics we were talking about having penne pasta since I had promised Emma we would have it. We had steak on the weekend and the girls were talking about whether they like it or not. I overheard Emma saying that , "Shee would like it if she had ketchup."
I said, "Why didn't you have Ketchup on it then"
Emma said, "Because Ketchup was not available."
She makes me laugh with the language she is experimenting with.
I know this is bad, but I do not mend socks. Not with the amount we use and really how inexpensive they are. So when we get a hole in our sock I usually say throw it away. So the other day Lily told me she had a hole in her sock. So I told her to throw them away.
A couple of days later Jilliana saw the socks in the trash and kept pointing at them and saying what I am sure is sock in Chinese. I told her they had a hole in them. But I thought I better show her what I meant so she wouldn't be throwing her socks in the trash. I took those dirty socks out and could not find a hole anywhere. I put them on my hands looking for a very small hole and still not hole. So I called Lily up from downstairs and said,
"Lily why did you throw these socks away?"
She said, "Because they have a hole in them."
I said, " I don't see one".
and then she said,
" Well I got sand on my feet!"
So I guess since when she got home from school and their was sand on her feet that she thought she had a hole in her sock. It is these type of things that come up just when you think she understands everything.
