things I like today pt. 2Posted: June 20, 2011
…that 4 years in, this is what our life is. Honestly though, I looked at this picture and felt O-L-D. Like, double take- ‘wait, is that a picture of my parents and us when we were little?’ But, a little perspective later- I feel so far beyond blessed that I get to call this my life, that my front yard, those my children, him my husband…
…Father’s Day morning. It sounded like this, “Ava, want to wrap your gift for Dad? Sure. Think Dad will like his new shirt? Of course, he told me his favorite color is purple. Ava, keep your voice quiet. Mom, can I crack the egg. Just finish decorating your card. OK. How do you spell Dad again. Ava, keep your voice quiet. Oops, I added an extra A. It’s fine. I drew you Mom, look how funny you look. Can I try the bacon? What kind of tea did we make dad? It’s coffee. Ava, keep your voice quiet. Elle, NO! CRASH. Oh crap, nobody move. Ava don’t walk on the floor. Elle crawl into the bedroom. Ava call your sister. Ava open the door. He’s asleep. No he’s not, just say Happy Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day. Were you seriously sleeping. No…so, what’d you break?”
…This dessert. My new summer staple. It’s like a frozen S’more. Do it!
The little girls endorsed it with ‘yummy sounds’…so did everyone at the table. Seriously, that good!
…the baby that we constantly have to strip down to her diaper because she is always such a mess.
…Kurt’s new “favorite color” shirt.
…this cute belly and the baby boy we are praying makes a prompt arrival the moment he is done cooking.
