I’m a participant in two Tuesday memes. The first is To-Do Tuesdays with Lisa from Crazy Adventures in Parenting. Here's my starter list for this week:
Call C (1 hour)
Contact P.B. regarding requirements
Re-email T re O3 and conference
Sort through two more boxes
Get sprout recipe
Submit HS paperwork
E-mail C regarding B.
Guest blog post for recipe (Thank you, Karen--don't give up on me!)
Awards blog post (almost done)
Get lost in bloggyland…daily, if you’re lucky! HA!
I’m also a continuing participant in Tot Talk Tuesdays started by Niecey of The Monkeys and Me.
I have one from my 5-year-old this week:
Me (speaking to hubby): Wow, from the looks of the weather radar, it looks like the thunderstorms are disappearing.
5-year-old: Mommy, how does the storm disappear?
Me: Well, it gets out there and rains most of the water out and then it sometimes goes away until it needs to rain again.
5-year-old: Oh, kinda like going potty, right?
Me: Um, right. (quickly adds the weather water cycle to our homeschool curriculum)
Another saying my 3-year-old uses constantly in place of "look at me" or "watch this."
"Mommy, SEE me!"
And I just love those words. They say so much more about really looking at our children and not just watching their new trick or how they look. Don't we all sincerely hope to "SEE" them?!
Another from my 5-year-old:
"And after eating our sandwiches, we'll be HOUSE FREE!" (instead of home free)
And finally, our one-year-old, who signs more than talks. (1) Lately he's become very good at telling us when he needs to go potty (thank you to EC!). (2) He's also begun signing when he's hungry (we really only worked on the sign for nursing, so he's inventing his own food signs). (3) And when he gets really upset (thinking no one's listening to his demands), he throws his little body on the floor (tummy down) and just plays dead (almost). Totally cracks us up!
