Flu. One week of the stomach flu strikes 4/5 of the family. Everybody but mommy (and baby #4). Hmmmmph.And when it is all said and done, it is time to paint the town...
Now that we are finally healed up and I have caught up on the masses of laundry and sheets that needed to be washed, I wanted to write out a few of my favorite things from the past week.
Audrey~ She is a peach when she is sick- snugly and kissy and holds me and pats my back as I pat hers. And she sings to me, as I sing to her. I love it. And I love her.
McClaine~ He doesn't know the word for milk. He calls it Click Clack Moo. "Mommy, I want Cheerios with Click Clack Moo." "Mommy, I want more Click Clack Moo." I didn't teach him this. I think he sees the resemblance between the cow picture on the milk carton and Doreen Cronin's Click Clack Moo, Cows that Type.
Avery~ She is really getting smart with knowing her letters/sounds and sounding out words. She finds it necessary to correct me at times. "Mom, W starts with a D. Listen to how I sound it out mom, d d double u." "Actually Avery, W is its own letter, you don't write out the word double u, you just write the letter, W." "Mom, you are wrong. And that's okay, everybody makes mistakes, you are learning. Just listen and I will sound it out for you again." Thanks Avery. Thank you, for simplifying it all for me.
