|Pwuto and Minnie Mouse|
After reading The Way of the Cross for children:
Cecilia: Who hurted Jesus?
Me: The soldiers did.
Cecilia: Dere's NO soldiers at our house!
Me: That's right. And what would you do to help Jesus when he's hurting?
Cecilia: Um... Say "What-a heck." WHAT da HECK???
Cecilia: Dad! Gweat job cuttin' da gwass!
Turning to me: Mom! Gweat job cookin' dinner! Um... Mrs. Mousewin' gweat job cookin' dinner! And Mr. Mousewin' gweat job cuttin' da gwass!
Looking at Elizabeth: And Baby Mousewin' gweat job... Pwayin' wiff your toys!!!
|Gweat job, Baby Mousewin'!|
Clearly words of affirmation are her love language!
We are assigned various story/tv characters throughout the day - this is her Angelina Ballerina cast list, in which I am Mrs. Mouseling, Andrew is Mr. Mouseling, John Paul is Marco (from the tv show), Elizabeth is baby mouseling and Mary Claire is baby ballerina. Of course...
Me: John Paul, maybe the new swing set will be done before dinner! Or maybe after dinner!
JP: Or MAYBE when we see the TADPOLES!
For the record, it has been MONTHS since we even talked about tadpoles. NO idea where that came from...
John Paul, telling his first original story: Once upon a time, there was a monster! The monster had a friend, and it was named Bug. Bug decided to read a story! *He tiptoes around, kisses Elizabeth on the head, and begins spinning in circles. The end?*
Cecilia: God made Mary Cwaire for ME!
John Paul: And God made Elizabeth for ME!
Good thing we had twins... Think I'm supposed to have quads next so they each have their own baby?
Cecilia, eating dinner: I wike wemons! And I don't wike... *thinking hard* poison.
They're always comparing yummy things to poison, and I have NO idea why, because it's not like they've ever eaten poison! I think it's because pretty much all food is yummy for them, but they know that poison CAN'T be yummy!
In the morning, I heard them fighting in their room even before I got them up... "Yes!" "No!" "YESSY!" "NO-EY!!!"
Me, opening the door: Stop fighting!
John Paul: Good morning!
Probably a better way to start than mine...
John Paul: Good morning, Mary Claire! I love you!
Cecilia: I have sparkles in my eyes!
And thus began our day...
They're spending as much time as possible on the new swing set, and since it's been raining a ton they come in SUPER muddy... Bath time has never been so necessary!
|I love Elizabeth's face in this one!|
The babies have been making a lot of forward progress with their crawling, but sometimes they end up pushing themselves backwards and get stuck under the loveseat...
"I'm drawing the number four, because I'm almost four!
Getting better at the tracing... These workbooks are the extent of our homeschooling right now!
Although Cecilia pretty much just scribbles, but at least she's working on her grip!
And Mary Claire and Elizabeth are working HARD on this crawling thing!
