portrait of the theologian as a small, pyrex-breaking child who loves cookies.


Sweet moments during the past several days: sharing a popsicle, hearing her say, "I love you, Dada" as he pulled out of the driveway and having actual, tiny conversations with Claire. These conversations mostly involve where she would like to go (bye-bye), how she would get there (in Dada's trutch), who she would visit (Greesh! Baby! and Owie!), and what she would like to do (get cookies).

Not so sweet moments of the past several days: dropping a new toilet paper roll into her bubble bath, experimenting with my pyrex measuring cup (yes, they break on impact) and adding commentary to my bible.

well here is to hoping that at the end of the week the sweet and not-so-sweets moments even eachother out. I am sure the sweets will win.

I know it's a little frustrating, but later, when she's grown, those first "notes" in the Bible may be a sweet reminder of days long gone. Just think of it as making a good book even better. :)

When we did the walk through for our house, I noticed many things, however I didn't noticed the ink circles on the wallpaper in the dining room until several weeks after we moved in.

Eventually we ripped the wallpaper off and had bare walls for a few weeks. One day I noticed the exact same ink circles on the wall!

After a bit of inquiry, Isabela pipes up in a very offended tone, "You ripped up my picture, so I made another one!"

Little stinkers.

I whole heartedly agree with cmhd. We also have a bible Sarah illustrated some twenty years ago. It's precious.

My oldest has done all of those things!!! And still does :) Sometimes...

The Bible notes will be precious, and well, the pyrex was probebly scarry, but you can now get a brand new one!! Whoohoo.
