Just the other day....
William found a penny. A cool 2010 penny that I had put aside since I thought it looked neat. He found it and quickly claimed it as his. The conversation went like this:
"Hey William! You can throw that penny in the fountain at the mall!" (It's one of his favorite things to do at the mall.)
"Ummmm.....no. I don't want to frow my money in the fountain. I want to frow mommy's money in the fountain."
And with that he tucked it safely in his pocket.
The four of us were driving in the truck one night, trying to find the fire line. We determined that the fire must have died down since we really didn't see anything too exciting. William then, completely out of the blue, asked if we were going to see a school bus.
"We see a school bus Mommy?"
"No, dear, we won't see a school bus because it's night time. And furthermore it's summer and school is out."
"I want to see a school bus."
"Sorry, there aren't school buses out now."
We continue driving for another mile or so and lo and behold a school bus comes roaring past us.
"Told ya, Mom."
John looked at me and silently started laughing. "Guess he told you!"
Abby has been eating a lot more solid foods these last few weeks. She still chocks a little, but not as bad as she used to. Well, she started chocking the other day and I immediately dropped what I was doing with William to scoop the impeding food from her mouth.
"Just leave it, Mom. Abby oh-tay."
"We can't let Abby chock. She'll die if we don't help her."
"That's oh-tay. We'll buy a new Abby."
Well, I'd post some new pictures, since I've got tons more to share, but I've lost my camera. John took pictures of William getting his ice cream from the ice cream man (Grandpa A gave him some money for pooping on the potty, so this was his long-awaited treat!) and since then I haven't been able to find it. I'm hoping that by announcing this dire situation to the bloggy world it will miraculously show up. You know, Murphy's Law and all.
