Friday, Sugar Bear went to school for his enrichment class, so it was just us girls here. We were getting ready to run errands together and go have lunch, so I asked Sugar Plum to bring me her comb and ponytail holder. “And a bow?” she asked. Okay, I said.
The next thing I know, she’s handing me the tools I asked for and a bright pink bow and then she says, “It’s a pink bow, because it’s Pink Day!” It is? “Yes! Mommy, where’s your pink?” I don’t know.
Never mind that the bow is the only pink thing that she’s wearing, but I guess it’s like St. Patrick’s Day; any one item of the specified color anywhere on your person will do.
And then there’s Sugar Daddy, bless his heart. He got in from his overseas trip that afternoon, and actually got a pretty good night’s rest, which is unusual on his first night back, especially with Sugar Pie getting up around 4am to eat. But Saturday was a busy day with a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese’s at 10am for our sweet friends’ daughter, a Christening at 1pm downtown for another sweet baby girl, followed by a late and leisurely lunch. That night was a restless one for Sugar Pie, because of the long day, and us as well, since we were trying to get the house suitable for having company the next day for Sugar Pie’s dedication lunch.
Sunday was a circus, starting about 7am–getting kids fed and ready, last-minute lunch set-up, etc., then church–getting family and friends corralled, etc. (forgot the camera!!!) –then lunch for 30 people at our house, (had the camera, but forgot to take pictures!!! can’t imagine why!!!) ending the day around 3pm. I got a nap with the kids, but Sugar Daddy didn’t. He went to bed about 10pm while I worked on my Bible study. About 30 min after he fell asleep, I moved my books around and he woke up…or so I thought.
He looked at me and said, “Have you had any luck?” What do you mean? “Did you find what you were looking for?” What was I looking for? “Did you find it at the end of the lane?” What lane? “The bowling lane. When you were bowling. Did you find the chain and the link?”
I wish the conversation could have gone on, but I couldn’t continue it through my laughter. And then he said, “What? I know what I’m saying! It makes sense to me!” Of course it does, Honey!
The REALLY funny thing is, we’ve NEVER been bowling together. We’ve talked about it, even planned on it, but just never got there. But we ARE bowling in his dreams, so I guess that counts.
And then, this morning at breakfast, Sugar Bear said, out of the blue, “Mommy, can you stand when you’re dead?”(Sugar Daddy and I exchange glances and he mouths to me, “Have you been talking about that with him while I was gone?” Nope.). No, Honey, when the body is dead, it can’t stand because the person is in heaven and the body is here. “But can it see?” No, it can’t see either. “When do you die? Mommy, are you going to die first? Because I like Daddy”.
I rest my case.
Here are some pictures of the kids. The last few are of Sugar Bear’s photography subjects. They’re a kick, too!
Big Sister entertaining Sugar Pie
PINK DAY!!! and Girls’ Day Out (eating Pizza Rolls–or “Casseroles” if you’re Sugar Bear)
Mmmmm….pickle and pumpkin soup for breakfast…ingredients: 4-5 small pickles; one mini-pumpkin, whole; one stick of butter ('cause that makes everything taste better!)
