This is a game Sarah likes to play:
Sarah - Where's your smile, Mama? (so I smile and she smiles back)
Ben, where's your smile? (he smiles)
Dada's smile is at work.
Ben - No he doesn't! (he heard Dad smiles at work)
She also often comes to me with "a surpresent for you". I figure it's a surprise present. She might have anything from sticks, to clean hands, to the diaper I asked her to go get - hidden behind her back. It always makes me smile.
Ben: g-o-e, that spells go
Me: Actually it's just g-o
Ben: Well, what does j-o-e spell?
Me: That spells Joe.
Ben: They rhyme, so it should be g-o-e.
Me: I don't know, Ben.
I have a hard time explaining a lot of stuff about spelling to him - some of it just doesn't make sense!
This afternoon, as I was on the computer, my kids were quiet in the other room. I knew Sarah had been asleep, but then I heard kids out front. My kids get in trouble often for being in the front yard - I just don't feel safe when they're out there. So I went to check on them and ask why they were out there. This is what I found. Sarah had fallen asleep on the couch with a pillow as a blanket. I guess Ben liked the idea and so he joined her - he has just his feet sticking out. This is how they sleep at night, too. She covers up pretty normal - but Ben sleeps with his head covered and his feet out. He heard me taking this picture and got up, so it was a short nap. Oh, well. I think Sarah is going to be weaning away from her naps as well. Some days it's such a fight.
