Nov 1 - We got in the car yesterday and Ian asked for his chocolate pastry. He then burst into song: 'Remember me, for pastries!'
He's so clever sometimes, I can't stand it. #yourewelcomefutureianspouse #falloutboy
Nov 1 - 15 minutes into our play date and Harper and Ian are already debating God. Well, God and poop. #tinytheologists
Nov 2 - Child was whining this morning. A cockroach crawled out of my sink while I was brushing my teeth. That same sink is backed up and I Conan'ed the P trap yesterday so I need to replace it. When I went to remove it so I could get a new one when I return the girls' coats at lunch, there was water in the bottom of it so I poured it down the sink ... Yeah.
And the dog peed and pooped in Ian's room last night.
Ian: 'Why did Mollie do that?'
Me: 'Well, she's old and sometimes she can't hold it.'
Ian: 'Granddad is old and he never poops in my room.'
Nov 9 - Ian is feeling worlds better but I'm down for the count. I was in bed eating the cereal Rich got for me.
Ian: 'Mommy, can you not get out of bed at all?'
Me: 'I can but my body aches a lot.'
Ian: 'So you'd just rather not? Huh. I mean there's not necessarily anything wrong with that ... I'm just sayin' ...'
Nov 9 - Ian, reading the thermometer:
'It says 9-0-0-1.'
'I think you mean 1-0-0-6.'
'Oh. That too.'
On the bright side, we're learning about decimals.
Nov 26 - Our parents have different names to Ian. My folks are Grandma/Mamaw and Pop and Rich's folks are Nana and Granddad.
When I was breaking Rich out of the hospital a few weeks ago, the school nurse was trying to call us to report Ian had a fever. She went down the list of contacts until she got to my dad (at the end of our street) who said he would come get Ian.
The nurse told Ian his 'granddaddy' was coming to get him. Ian sighed and said, 'Well, *that'll* be a couple hours ...'
I'm happy to report Granddad and Lee made the two hour drive from Richmond for Thanksgiving today. Ian was so excited last night he couldn't fall asleep, so that at one point I accused Rich of telling Ian that come magical turkey was coming to our house with gifts. But Granddad and Uncle Lee have the same effect.
