Sadie: "So when are we doing school today?"
Me: "It's Friday. We do field trips on Friday. And no school on Saturday and Sunday."
Sadie: "No school on Fridays?" (She knows this, oh how she knows this! But she tries every Friday and Saturday to convince me otherwise!)
Me: "No school on Fridays. We're going on a field trip."
Sadie: "I think we still need to do religion class" (or what she calls "original class" since that's what she thought I said the first time I told her we were doing our little faith class)
Sadie: "It's good to read the Bible, Mommy. I think we need to do our religion class and read about the saints. We need to do it every day, Mommy."
Sadie: "So... are we going to do math, Mommy? I think we need to do math every day. Let's get out the math book!"
Me: "No! No math until Monday!"
This is basically a version of a conversation we repeat every Friday and Saturday (by Sunday she's given up on me). I guess the good thing is that the child is absolutely enthusiastic when she sees her math book after having been separated from it three long days.
Okay... I'll say it: My baby is growing too fast!
I have seen him use Maggie as a human walker. Her little waist is the perfect height and he'll hold onto it and they'll do a little conga line across the living room with slow shuffling steps. It definitely won't be too much longer now.
Patrick is all about Maggie, all the time.
He follows her from room to room, sitting where she sits, playing where she plays. The drama comes when he wants to play with every single toy that she is playing with.
If she picks something up, he wants to be holding it. He wants to be doing exactly what she's doing all the time.
And this is where she really amazes me. If her older sister did the exact same thing there would be pinching. When Paul or I have to take away some small choke-hazard like thing that she's somehow acquired tears are inevitable. But Patrick has both of his sisters wrapped around his teeny tiny little finger and can apparently do no wrong.
I have a feeling that her little brother's constant attention and love are capable of doing amazing things!
|By the way... it lights up...|
In case you were looking at it wondering:
Can that jellyfish be anymore awesome.
With lights it actually can be...
Oh how this thing makes me laugh.
And actually, after looking at a calendar, I just realized that we met eight years ago today!
How time flies!
