As Jake is learning to speak he is adding to the fun. As any parent I anxiously awaited his first word combination, that moment when they put two words together for the first time. And wasn't my wait worthwhile.... As I finished putting on a fresh diaper Jakes waves (not at me) and says: "Bye Bye PeePee" Nice, so worth the wait.
Gabby wakes up to find me changing Jake's sheets as his diaper had exploded during the night. As she sizes up the situation she looks at me and says, "Good times Mom, good times."
This was from dinner at Sandpoint. My Dad was joking about a recent punishment for Gabby:
Papa: "Gabby you are positively persecuted." Gabby: brief pause followed by a deep sigh "Always have been."
On day 3 in the car of our four day trip to Utah Matt was a little frustrated. Perhaps we were driving a little too fast but one car really wanted to let us know that they did not like our driving. So as we blew by they laid on the horn and Gabby said, looking out the window, "I didn't know we were by a train!"
At church, as we are getting ready for the sacrament prayer (think silence) I wisper to Gabby to please fold her arms. In an exasperated voice she says, "Mom, you're driving me crazy." (Did I mention it was also a loud voice?)
When I spilled milk all over the counter: (hands on hips) "What a fiasco!"
When the water heater broke: (hands on hips) "Mom, this is a DISASTER!"
I am a wife, a mom, a friend, a daughter, an in-law, and someone who needs to laugh on a regular basis. I believe that for most things in life you either laugh or cry so I am going to try and keep track of what makes me laugh.
