1. While driving home from daycare Arielle started singing The Farmer in the Dell. When she got to the part that should have said, "The cheese stands alone" she paused and then said, "The cheese stands by he's self". To make it even funner she added "The mom runs away" to the song. With both kids sick for 4 days a piece last week I have to admit, I had thought about it once or twice!
2. We took Nate on a date and let him pick the restaurant. He chose BBQ and so we went to Texas Roadhouse. He ordered a salad and I told him he was really growing up and it was breaking my heart. He looked puzzled and asked why it breaks my heart. I told him that he'll eventually grow up and move away. He replied, "I am NEVER moving out!" I mentioned that he will have more chores as he gets older to which he responded, "I'm DEFINITELY moving out then". When I told him that he'd have to do ALL of the chores when he moves out, he went back to his previous statement of never.
3. While we waited for the bill, Nate asked me to take a picture of him. He made sure to make the silliest faces ever and asked to approve of the picture I posted.
5. Arielle likes to say our full names now, but she says it out of order every time. She always says the middle name, last name and then first name. She's so proud and cute that I don't have the heart to correct her.
