Brent has this supplement that's supposed to give you a full day's nutrition from vegetables or something. It supposedly has a "New Green Apple Flavor" but I think it tastes like DEATH.
He mixed some up the other day and of course, Nathan wanted some because he always wants what you have. Brent put a bit in a cup and Nathan eagerly slurped it down.
Then he made a face and said, 'That's TERRIBLE".
The only time we've heard him use that word but it was CLASSIC!
I have this firm foam roller that I use to stretch my back. It's about the same length as Nathan and 6-8 inches across, maybe.
I usually use it after Nathan's asleep.
The other day he and I were in my room at the same time. I arched my back, put my lower hand on my back and said to myself, "Man, my back is killing me."
From across the room I heard, "Nathan get it!" He ran to where I store the roller, pulled it out (even though it's the same size as him) and laid it on the floor. Then he patted it and said, "For Mama... Right here."
I think I cried just a little bit at how completely sweet and lovely my little boy is.
Nathan's Nursery leaders sing different songs than I do. The other day after Church I heard him singing to himself, "E-I-E-I-Nathan!"
(He moved on to "E-I-E-I-Mommy" and "E-I-E-I-Grandma"... just that part. I"m not sure what the rest of the song is for him... )
And finally... my mom sent me this link the other day.
The author pretends that the pictures in catalogs are from a real house, inhabited by a couple named Gary and Elaine and she points out how completely ridiculous things would be if you actually tried to LIVE in the "perfect" house.
It's good for a laugh. Enjoy!
