I chose to make Kyle wake up with Leah and me sleep in for the first time… maybe ever. I come out to find them on the couch.
Me: Did she eat breakfast?
Kyle: She had fruit snacks, a graham cracker, and one grape.
Me: Staring blankly, and then… Fruit snacks?!
Kyle: Ya? I didn’t know.
Me: You didn’t assume she doesn’t have fruit snacks at 7am?
Kyle: No, you were sleeping. She looked like she needed them. She said she did.
This is why I don’t sleep in.
Me: Leah, your hair is beautiful!
Leah: Thanks, mommy!
I smile politely.
Leah: Whispers… Say you’re welcome, mommy.
Sometimes I wonder why we teach her to be so polite. It only comes back to bite me.
I send Kyle down to our gift bag stash to find one for his grandma’s 80th birthday. I describe exactly where it is and what it looks like. He comes up with this:
Me: No. No. That’s not it.
Kyle: Why not? It’s a bag.
Me: Kyle, does that look like a bag fit for your grandma?
Kyle: Sure, she likes stripes.
You guys. The one I described was white, with pastel colored birds and ribbon for handles.
My sister and I planning our menu for tomorrow’s get together.
Lauren: Do you want alcohol?
Me: Ha. Do you need me to drink with you?
Lauren: No – I drink by myself, I don’t care.
She is a wonderful mother to three darling girls, let no one forget.
Me once again huffing and puffing because of a stressful day.
Kyle: Do you need to take a shower and read your Bible?
The solution to all of life’s problems.
I’ve started seeing a chiropractor for this:
Voice texting helped this conversation that transpired after an appointment:
Thank God for technology, no?
And I don’t know if this one is funny or just sweet, but…
Kyle: Sleeping Beauty comes out October 7th, do we have that one?
Made me smile real big. There was a time Sleeping Beauty coming to DVD wouldn’t have been within 1000 miles of his upcoming-DVD-release-date radar…
