A few days ago, Jonathan admonished Drew to behave so Drew could go on a special outing with just Daddy. Drew started to get “carried away” at the dinner table, and Jonathan quickly reminded him of the agreement. In reply, Drew said, “Maybe, I can be bad for dinner and be good at the store.”
The boys have been preparing for the Christmas play at church. As a result, they have learned the words to more Christmas carols. It was sweet to hear Luke sing some of the words to “Away In A Manger” and to do the hand motions at the same time.
Tonight as I was rocking Luke, he said, “Mommy, Bible story.” He wanted me to tell him a Bible story so I told him the story of David and Goliath. Requests like that are ones I will always be glad to fulfill!
A few days ago, Jonathan took Drew and Luke with him to the store while Will and I stayed home to do something that I can’t recall anymore. Any way while they were out, the boys kept touching bananas that were on display at the store. These bananas were very ripe. Jonathan thought he should buy the bananas because the boys kept touching them so he did and brought them home. Since there wasn’t much else to do with the bananas, I made banana bread. When Drew saw the yummy bread, he said, “Good we got those bananas for you.”
A few days ago, I had made the boys sandwiches, using bread that has nut-like grain in it. Will was complaining that he doesn’t like nuts and was trying to remove every “nut.” Drew instead was quickly eating and said, “I am going to eat the nuts so that I can become a daddy.” Will responded with, “Nuts don’t make you a daddy.”
