Love Thursday: Big Baby


You know how sometimes you live with someone so long that you stop noticing things about them? The gray hairs on your spouses head? The dogs weight gain? I’m like that with my kids- only in reverse. I notice that they are getting bigger all the time. This morning, for instance, I realized that I couldn’t take Scorch’s shirt off of him while I’m sitting on the ground any more because the kid is too damn tall.  I marvel daily at how the Bean is putting together crazy complex sentences.

What I forget daily is that my kids are still babies in a lot of ways. Today they both reminded me of that-

> Scorch is having a Harvest Party at school tomorrow and he keeps calling it his Hummus Party.

> The Bean pronounced the word Ghost as “goat” and is convinced that ghosts say “moo,” not “boo.”

I do love those little buggers!  I hope you all have a very happy Halloween!
