It’s kind of like when you go into an unoccupied house and there are cobwebs everywhere. Our living room has big blanket cobwebs.
Me (to Brian): What are you doing?
Brian: I’m doing something that’s not your business.
Brian just told me that bee cheerios (honey nut) are made out of dead bees. This is what he had for breakfast.
Brian and Marie crashed into each other on their bikes this morning, and Brian ripped his fingernail almost all the way off. It looked really scary and there was a lot of blood. After reassuring them he would not die and it would grow back, we went to the dr. and got him patched up. He’s feeling much better now and acting pretty normal. His finger is bandaged like a huge fat finger and we are not allowed to ride bikes for a few days (in this beautiful weather!)
Marie has packed for the beach. We are going to the beach in July, but she is ready!
Who knew crayons could go through the wash and not melt? The papers came off and shredded, but it wasn’t the mess I expected.
After bathtime some months ago, Brian crouched down on the floor and covered himself in a towel, and told us he was an egg. After a while, he hatches, and runs around. This has become a bit of a tradition.
They ran to Brian’s bed after baths tonight, and both got under the comforter to be a big double egg. Laura poked under the blanket to tickle them, and Brian said “Mom, don’t touch me! I’m a vewwy fwagile one!” Then Marie hatched and started running around and said “and I ran off in alarm!”
Funny kids, they are.
Mom, I have a man in my foot and I’m sticky!
Guess who is learning to ride a bike with no training wheels?!
Tonight at dinner, Marie made a hen and 5 eggs out of her green beans. Brian made three “mans” that were getting squished (by his hand). Most of the green beans actually ended up getting eaten, too. Maybe that’s the secret.
