The last two weeks have been challenging...we endured a round of viral fever/cough followed by strep throat all around. Being a pseudo-single mom for the time being, it has been tough. You can't even ask the neighbor girls to come and help when everyone is sick. Only a mother could love the fevered, cranky, grouchy bunch of kids that have been in residence here lately. Still, we've managed and if we escape the stomach virus that is now going around, next week should almost be back to normal and daddy will be HOME!
The recent days have not been completely without laughter, thanks to Netflix on the computer. Bubba, Stump, and Samantha Jeanpocket all enjoy watching AstroBoy (and there are 20+ episodes for their amusement).
My amusement and delight is in their coaxing Samantha to come and watch with them. She speaks pretty well for a 2 1/2 year old, but does shorten words to single syllables sometimes.
The boys, bless their hearts, imitate her dialect to make her feel like she's one of them. They say, "Samantha, want to come and watch A$$Boy?" and Samantha replies, "Yes, watch A$$Boy!"
And I just laugh--not at them, I delight in their innocence and just wish it could last forever.
