This is what Rhianwen asked me the other day. I said, "Yes. Uncle Robeson is a doctor. Have you seen him eat?" Rhianwen said, "Yes...Uncle Robeson is a doctor?!". She was pretending to be a doctor, so it was important that she get that detail correct. I assume Uncle Robeson eats pretty well now that he's married to Aunt Natalie (another person that Rhianwen pretends to be). Here's how the doctor scenario played out at our house:
Rhianwen to Alden: What do you need for your checkup?
Alden (not too thrilled): Um...Nothing.
Rhianwen: That happens at the end.
Being baseball players.
Alden is getting to be such a big boy. He's expressing himself in bigger complete sentences. After watching a Reading Rainbow episode on rollercoasters, he said to me at dinner, "If I go on a rollercoaster, I will roll and roll and roll, and it will bonk my head on the meatballs." Hmm. I think this child is confusing On Top of Spaghetti and rollercoastering. Another time, Wally spoke for Corwin and said, "Alden, tell me about the world." Alden said, "God made it!". It's just so fun to hear how he thinks. Alden can be so sweet, but then he can also be very reactive in a boy way.
Spring is here, and we spend most of our time outside! Somehow, the house is still a mess.
And now for some videos:
Alden caught it at the end, but somehow it's not on here. Ah, technical difficulties. Rhianwen suggested letting it go into the sky, but I think you're not supposed to for some reason...confuses birds or causes major catastrophes like more holes in the ozone??? Not sure...
Corwin has a new best friend. He likes to talk to him and chuckle at him and stare at him until he is lulled to sleep. The appearance of Corwin's big brother didn't even distract him from lovingly staring into his eyes. It makes me realize where they got the idea for gargoyles...babies must love them!
Daddy is talented not only at getting Corwin back to sleep in the middle of the night but also at entertaining him. It's amazing how men are just wired differently than women. I cuddle, he...well, he makes farting noises. (Sorry about the "enter text here" thing...I don't feel like redoing it...you can fill in your own thoughts...ha!).
This week brings a lot of busyness. Saying goodbye to some good friends, a family wedding, Corwin's baptism, Wally out of town, and a well-visit. Yikes! Trying to stay calm and just tackle what I can. Blogging is my form of procrastination.
