*All day I kept seeing the blanket on the couch, and the alarm clock on the table next to it and telling myself, you need to clean that up in case a neighbor stops by, if not someone will think y'all are having problems :). Apparently in my head I live in a world where neighbors stop by to chat and are very judgmental, I think one too many re-runs of 50's sitcoms.
*I love the way Jack prays, he has such faith. He never asks for anything, but instead if he hurts his leg he prays, "Dear God, thank you for making my leg better." Without fail this is how he prays as if everything on his list is something God will take care of, no need to worry about it a minute more. I could learn a thing or two from him.
*Jack could also teach us all a thing or two about knowing what will make someone the absolutely maddest they could be. Twice this week when he was mad at Kyle or I (for the stupidest things I must point out) and he peed on his carpet on purpose. Just typing that makes me mad again, that boy is a genius, he wants to do something to get back at me and he has found the absolutely perfect thing.
*Lost has ruined every show I watch. Whenever I decide to watch one of my taped regular shows instead of watching an episode of Lost, I'm left thinking, that was okay I guess, but not really all that exciting.
*We got to go visit my grandmother in Decatur this past weekend. Every time I go there I don't want to leave. Somehow I managed to forget my camera which is really unfortunate, we did a lot of neat things. We went to a catfish fry at the Greenwood store (which is in a town of about 15) and there were some local men playing bluegrass, behind them was the wooden shelves stocked with cans of tuna fish and diet coke, and Chloe sat in a high chair dancing and clapping, and eating more pieces of catfish than I did. It was one of those moments I wanted a picture of, then again because I didn't have a camera I made sure to imprint it in my memory.
*Kylynn is growing up before my eyes and I want to sit on her and make her stop. The other morning I was running behind on getting everyone ready and out the door, she took Jack upstairs and helped him brush his teeth, put on his socks and shoes, put on Chloe's socks and shoes, and then helped Jack pack his backpack, all of her own initiative. I stopped and realized just how much I couldn't do this without her, she makes me so proud. I think it's time I took her out for a date, it's been too long.
*Chloe adores Jack, she follows him around and wants to do everything he does, and he seems to think being a big brother is the world's best job, I've yet to see him lose his patience with her. Today in the car I looked back and they were holding hands over the edge of their car seats. Here is a video* of the two of them playing air hockey (craigslist find) against Daddy, they're a cute pair!
*please forgive the voice of Kylynn in the background begging for me to take her picture
