Joy













It was a big week over here at the Brown house. Preschool started; I actually went to the gym a few times. A big week, indeed. I'm feeling kind of short on words, so here are a few from the kids.

Quinn cried off and on for an hour last week (and I mean REALLY cried - I thought about taking a video, but decided it would seem cruel) because his umbrella wasn't shooting fire out of the tip when he pointed it at Ellie, like Jiminy Cricket's. He sobbed that he was just getting puffs of smoke, no fire. My heart broke for him, even though he was trying to shoot fire at his twin sister.

"I love you very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very much. Even mucher than my cars." - Quinn, to the gushiest loving mother in the whole world.

When I told Ellie I had to rush to the bathroom, "Don't worry, Mommy, grown ups know how to hold their vaginas."

"I'm giggling out of happiness!" as Ellie ran around the room tonight, giggling.

"Bah? Bah? Bah-ber? Bah? Bah? Ell-ye? Bah? Bah? Bah? Bah? Bah? Sausage." - Henry, which I believe was "Flag? Book? Blackberries? Lamp? Helicopter? Ellie? Lightbulb? Bug? Airplane? Tools? Car? Sausage."

He has actually said sausage and Ellie and an almost blackberry. Other than that, there are a lot of bahs.
