…and You're a monkey!

those crazy kids

Miracles and Weddings.

My niece is getting married on Saturday (just annouced it Tuesday).  All the quick planning and figuring out what is needing to be done I was reminded of something K said when she was little.

K was just 2 1/2, she had been in a cast from the hip do the ankle on, I think her right leg (doesn’t really matter which).  I was babysitting one night and she stepped on a little piece of glass, just a small sliver.  I pulled it, out gave lots of kisses and a pink bandage.  Not one to miss an opportunity to grab some extra attention K decided that her injury was going to prevent her from walking.  That evening I indulged her a bit – why not it was almost bed time.

The problem came the next morning, she was a stuborn little girl and she still was not going to walk.  Well, we just kind of ingnored her thinking she would get bored with her little game but she held on.  Around 1 in the afternoon my brother suggested a trip to the local ice cream store on the way to taking me home.  K was so excited till Daddy told her that if she couldn’t walk she couldn’t have ice cream.  That is when my niece came up with one of my all time favorite kid quotes.  K, with all the drama of one of the great silver screen stars of the 1940’s, ever so cautiously stood, slowly and tentively coming to her feet she spread her arms and looked up to the heavens and declared; “Wook Daddy, it’s a muracle, I can walk!!”

The weather outside is frightful….

WOW!!!  More snow.  They are saying 6-8 inches before tomorrow morning but we already have 3+. Tomorrow the winds pick up so I am guessing another snow day.

I made the comment yesterday to Harry that we are living in a snow globe.  He looked at me like I had finally completely lost my mind and said “No? we live in a town”.  Yeah, a town in a snow globe.

Jacob is getting ready for school.  I know how much he hates PE but if he doesn’t finish two PE classes this semester he doesn’t graduate, if he doesn’t graduate he doesn’t get to leave for the Navy in August.  If I go right now and crawl in bed I can sleep for 30 more minutes……

Harry, The baby of the family

Harry is my mover.  He is sweet and loving but doesn’t have time for snuggling, he has too many things to take apart.  Harry doesn’t see the benefit and using things as intended.  Foam blocks must be attached to items and pens have pointed ends for just the purpose.

Harry is the most likely of all my children to come, out of the blue, Say “I love you” and walk away.

Harry says things that we have no idea where they came from.  The other day he said something was “frig’n dumb” ???  Not a phrase I recognize from daily use at home but who knows….I think he stores things up, saves then for weeks, then cracks them out when least expected.

Harry lives by his own sets of rules.  Which worries me and makes me proud all at the same time.  Oh and Harry also has a fiance.  He insist that when he goes up he is going to marry “Nancy” (not her real name).

Isn’t it obvious?

The other day I asked Harry how he knew daddy was a boy, maybe he was a girl…(yes I know, this could have turned out VERY bad).

His answer: “cause he is mart and hamsome”

I was trying to get Harry to repeat this to Daddy so again I asked the same question (tempting fate, I know)

His answer the second time: “cause I lub him so berry much”
