And I thought I wouldn't have anything to say...

Yesterday morning while eating her cereal, Eleanor yelled, "spider!" I thought she had mistaken a raisin for a spider, but sure enough when I looked in her bowl, there was a spider trying to climb out of her bowl. It fell into her milk, curled up, and looked exactly like the raisins in her bowl. I scooped it out, washed Eleanor's spoon, and she went back to eating her cereal. I on the other hand was very thankful that it was fast Sunday because I had lost my appetite.

Eleanor was eating her cereal this morning and instead of putting Zach in his highchair, I went back to talking about shapes with Emily. Then I heard the familiar sound that I have heard before( which is why I usually put Zach in his chair when Eleanor is eating), the sound of the bowl crashing to the floor. "Zach!" I yell, he says "dadadada"...well, dada is not here to blame, so I pick him up and put him in his chair. I give him raisins to snack on since he's obviously hungry right?, no, he throws them on the floor. And I go clean up the cereal mess.

While exercising this morning, Eleanor and Zach were in the bedroom playing happily...a little too happily I find out when I am done. Eleanor decided to color Zach. Emily thought it was hysterical! Emily: "Isn't that funny, mama? Me: "It's a bad decision" Emily: "But it's still funny, right?!"

Joey,
At first I thought something was seriously wrong with Zach, but since he was smiling with such joy I changed my mind! That is a great picture and even better story. I am so glad you posted it! You made Brad and I laugh.

Have a good day,
Bonnie

Love those girls.... I'll bet Zach is just as fun but we really miss Ellenor, Emily and Zoey.

Hi Joey, that is some good looking son you have there. Reminds me of an Old Town Indian! Very cute!
