29 October 2011

Maisie and I only made it through about three pages of Farmer Boy tonight. She's a little snorfelly still. And after bath time battles and overtired, she's a little sensitive. She was bothered to tears that Calvin was having shrieking fits of laughter with HIS books. At first she said she didn't know why she was crying, then she admitted that maybe Farmer Boy was a little boring, since Calvin had the giggles with his books tonight. So we put that book away and went with "Pigsty" and "Tillie the Hen". Hmm...barnyard theme tonight!

Calvy is having trouble with pronouns still. This morning it was while asking for chocolate milk. "MomMom, me want choc." Me: "Calvin, say 'I want choc'". Calvin, "Me already said that.". Bwahahahhaha!

Today while I changed his pants at the store, Calvin noted that his pee pee "has a crack in it." Then he suggested he might need to buy a new one! I try not to laugh, but it is so difficult!

While we are at the store, we have any number of books to read. He has found in the last month, a couple of Dora the Explorer books. What I love is that he brings them to me and then asks, "Mom! Read this book at me!". So I guess it's more like a demand than a request!

He has another favorite called puppies at play, or something similar. There is one picture that cracks him up. Every. Time. Hahaha! Last night we brought it home and he "read" it to us. Adorable.

I will ask Calvin if he is a boy or a bear. He says "boy" and then I ask what a boy says. "hi", and he waves. Then I ask what a bear says, and he roars and claws with his hand!

Maisie has the best Halloween costume ever! Ari made it from one of my old prom dresses, into Little Bo Peep. Soooooo cute! She has a classmate's party tomorrow, then t or t in Ephrata businesses on mon afternoon, and then t or t at Greg's school. Calvin is a cute little cowboy, complete with orange pop guns. Eek. But I could not deny the little doll any longer.
