The deal: Use our themes or use your own - just let us know what is 'currently' going on with you. Be sure to stop by and say hello to the other bloggers linking up - especially to my amazing co-host Randalin of Kale & Beans.
This week's themes:
reading, watching, listening, eating, enjoying
Otto has been Reading ev. er. y. thing. His Papa sends him letters and he reads them and writes back. He reads books, workbooks, junkmail, billboards... Rob and I have had to switch from spelling out our secrets to pig latin'ing them.
Et'slay atchway a oviemay and eat achosnay after the idskay are in edbay. Our secrets are almost always about Watching a show and eating snacks after the kids are in bed.
Loretta insists on Listening to the exact same bedtime books every night. We found out that it's because she's memorizing them. Every night now she "reads" Llama Llama, I Love You and Happy Halloween Max & Ruby to ME. And sometimes we all gather around and she reads them to the whole family. What a treat. I am working to add Frog & Toad stories to the mix. ps. She also says to me, "I'm the baby llama and you're the mama llama and we love each other." I am so wrapped around that girl's finger you can't even imagine, you guys.
We have been talking a lot about Eating cupcakes, cookies, donuts, and cake. There has been a tea party picnic going on in the playroom for about a week solid. This is cute and also makes me want actual cake.
As a family we have really been Enjoying Loretta as a 3 year old. She is still a total pain in the ass, demanding, mercurial, and incredibly loud. But she's also just crazy vocal and I think that's what she was always waiting for. Girlfriend has a LOT to say and she's gonna say it. Otto and Etta have become faster friends than ever, they make up games together, sneak snacks together, and laugh at each other's jokes. I'm more than enjoying this time in our lives and also so stinking glad summer is just around the corner. My mood is 70% related to the weather at all times so I'm looking forward to being all rose-colored-glasses for the next few months.
That was this week & here are next week's theme's:
