April 19, 2017
A few evenings ago I went out with Elinor and Faith to run a couple of errands in preparation for Easter. As I left home I requested of Abe that the little boys not just watch TV while I was gone.
A little while later I received a text message from Abe that the power was out.
My request was granted! They did not watch TV. We arrived home to Abe and the boys having a seance.
Not really, but they did have about 12 candles lit, which was quite cozy. And we stayed up late reading Harry Potter by flashlight, which was quite lovely. We have just finished the third book and started the 4th.
So basically, our retirement plan just changed to, "mooch off our rich inventor daughter"!
Well, she is now an award winning inventor!
And is it just me, or do I totally have Princess Diana hair in this picture? I tell you, the 80's will rise again.
Also, Team Middle Kids on their scooters got way too far ahead of the walkers. I thought they'd be fine, but Elinor was very concerned so she ran ahead to try to find them and bring them back to us. Then Elinor informed me that Abe and I are not strict enough with the little kids. We let them get away with too much and we should be firmer.
In this picture Peter is very happy to get his baby food jar of bugs and worms back after a nap. Before his nap he completely lost it because he couldn't take the jar to bed with him.
A few days before that it was because he couldn't hold Elinor's goldfish and then because he couldn't take the whole bag of carrots to bed with him. Sometimes it's hard to be 2.
She cut her first tooth on her 9 month birthday. She is the most delightful thing ever!
