What we are thankful for and another funny story

Roman is thankful for Elmo and Deacon is thankful for the planets.

The kids were at the YMCA today while I participated in mind numbing aerobic exercise. Deacon had very seriously told me that he would probably not go to the gym because it is so noisy in there (at busy times the divide the kids into the gym and the play room). When I came to pick them up Deacon and Lincoln were in the play room and Roman was in the gym. I said to Deacon, "oh you aren't in the gym because it is too loud, right?" and he nodded. The teacher said that Deacon had said it was too wild. I commented that it was funny that Roman had gone because they usually stick together. The teacher said, "Well, Roman wanted to go and Deacon told him 'don't you want to stay here with me, Roman?' so Roman stayed until Deacon went to the bathroom. As soon as he went into the bathroom Roman came over to the staff and pointed to the gym and said 'gym'." And sometimes I really believe that he doesn't know what is going on!

What kind of paper?

We made turkeys this morning out of paper. While i was getting supplies out Deacon kept telling me, "I want a piece of white worker paper, mom"
It only took me a couple minutes to figure out that he wanted CONSTRUCTION paper! Worker, construction? What's the difference!

We are working on potty training today with Roman. He has had 4 successes and 1 episode of wet underwear so far today. He gets 5 mini marshamallows, a cup of juice and a sticker on the chart everytime he goes. when he went in his underwear I told him that he couldn't have any treats. he went up and took the sticker off of his chart and tried to eat that. I really have nothing more to say about that. I can't think of anything.

You never thought you'd say

Deacon: Dad! Roman is sitting on my head and I don't like it!

Dad: Then don't crawl over there and put your head under his butt!

The Infirmary

The boys have been sick for the last 8 days. I don't remember the last time I have been home so much! We went out yesterday (Saturday) and I realized that for Roman and Lincoln it was the first time they had gone anywhere by car since the last Saturday! We saved a lot on gas this week :)
We have been watching a lot of movies, building a lot of Lego zoos and reading a lot of books. Oh, and of course, listening to a lot of whining! Deacon actually lost his voice. It was kind of sad to see the little boy who talks nonstop to not be able to verbalize much for a couple of days! All in all it was a nice break- we had been really busy - but I am looking forward to getting out of the house this week! Roman and Lincoln and I are home from church again today, but I am hoping that tomorrow we will be back to our old routine!
