My wife and the girls recently got some corn stalks from some friends of ours, and we carved some pumpkins up as a family a couple of weeks ago. Little did we know that we were providing the local squirrels with stuff to “nibble” on!
If Sari is excited she’ll say: “YEAH! Thank you! You can come to my birthday party!”
If she’s mad she’ll say: “You CAN’T come to my birthday party.”
“Not for another 3 months, Sari.”
“But I want Christmas now!” she tells us.
“Nothing we can do, honey. We’ll make sure you don’t miss it when it comes.”
She’s quiet for a few seconds, then she tells us: “I want presents from the fat man @ Christmas!”
We laughed for a while!
Last night Macie was coloring with markers at the table, and we weren’t watching her (usually she’s fine). Amanda was in the bathroom doing something with Sari and Macie went in there, too. Amanda started laughing hysterically and sent Macie to see me in the living room. It was really funny! For the next hour we were calling Macie, William Wallace (from Braveheart)!!
So we are still in Spokane (last day) and we were heading to a local aquatic park to go swimming with the girls. Nana had to stop by her work to do a couple of things. While the girls were playing in the lobby in their swimsuits a salesman came in and greeted us and the girls.
Feeling confident, I suppose, Sari proceeded to tell this friendly salesman: “I’m potty-trained!” It was hilarious! Not only Sari’s comment, but also the salesman’s: “Me too!” Then Sari got shy again!
