Things home –

Kids quickly become creatures of habit. We put is a CD for them while they are going to sleep and often set it to repeat the whole CD since they will call us up to start it again… if they haven’t fallen asleep yet. Kaitlyn calls it her Muse-Gik… Their current favorite song is the Wonky Donkey.

While Kaitlyn doesn’t like eating them, she has taught us that ravioli’s are pronounced Rally-Rollies…

Kaitlyn – I’m going to write in my diary-ah.  (March 30th)

In the car with Emilee:

Emilee:  Can I have a zucchini?

Patty: Sure! have you tried it before? Do you like it cooked or raw. (Patty and I are happy that Emilee wants to try some new food and it’s nutritious!)

Emilee: No… a zucchini bathing suit..

how be your spelling

Dad: Kaitlyn, how do you spell “toast”?
Kaitlyn: … e-l-e-e-y
Dad: and how do you spell “shoe”?
Kaitlyn: e-l-e-e-y …
Dad: really! how do you spell “hippopotamus”?
(note… I needed a spell checker there…)
Kaitlyn: E-L-E-E-Y! (spoken as if I were daft…)

An there you have it. She will be a nuclear scientist when she is done with her modeling/movie career.

More notes on the kids:

Emilee – In the car rhyming on the way back from Noni’s on Mothers day.

Dad: I see three bee’s in a tree..
Emilee: Truck… F__k
Mom: … what was that?
Emilee: (very clearly) Truck, F__k.

… and so it starts.

Kaitlyn – 6am this morning, despite her walking pneumonia, decided that she would sit outside outside our room and belt out “God Bless America” … but only the two lines she knows of the song – and repeat untill everyone is up to start their morning…

She is very patriotic…

two year old words

clop-trot -> Chocolate
ip-fops -> Flip flops
yucky charms -> Lucky Charms cereal

Emilee Has moved up (down) to pre-school – goes right to sleep at night – they are pushing her to learn!
Justin’s first couple of days at American Rock Salt
Driveway paved recently – pulling out the rocks along the sides
