Ok, Mack is a mess—in more ways than one! He loves to climb. He climbs on Josh’s office desk regularly. He gets popped for it, but continues to do it day after day. I was just putting up dishes and loading my dishwasher while the girls and Mack were in the playroom. I was also on the phone for a bit with our repair man who is coming to fix our washing machine….anyway, I get off the phone and ask Ruby if Mack is in the playroom. She says, “No, he is in the office. You gotta come see this.” Sure enough, he is sitting on the office desk, with a pencil….oh no…he drew all over our screen of the computer with a pencil. (Breathe, Kristy, don’t go crazy over this. Your kids are watching you.) I get him off the desk and THANKFULLY the pencil wiped off with no damage. What am I going to do with this boy????!!!!
While I am on here, let me go ahead and tell the story about Molly. Here is how the conversation went:
Molly-Daddy, are you going to work?
Josh-Yes, Molly, I am going to work.
Molly- You aren’t wearing a work shirt….it doesn’t have stripes.
(Evidentally, Josh wears mostly striped golf shirts to work.)
She and I were reading a book and one of the pictures showed a boy getting dressed, and he had a belt on. Molly said that he must be a daddy because he had a belt. I don’t wear belts and neither do my girls. Josh is the only one who does. She is quite observant. When we met Josh for lunch today she immediately said, “You have on a work shirt today, Daddy.” It was striped.
And one on Ruby….She is not a great eater. She didn’t eat much supper tonight (roast, potato, carrots, onion, apple). After a few hours she hollers, “I AM STILL HUNGRY.” We let her know that she doesn’t get any food, and she needs to learn to eat her dinner so that she won’t be hungry. Her night time prayer was, “Dear God, Thank you for this wonderful day. Thank you for the food I ate at breakfast and lunch. Please help me learn to eat dinner. Amen.”
