Yesterday I had changed Murph out of his jammies into clothes. He likes to "help" with the laundry so I was letting him carry the pajamas down the hall to where I was doing the laundry. I was walking in front of him and all of a sudden I heard a THUD! I looked around to find my brilliant little boy had put the pajamas over his head and walked straight into a wall! If I wouldn't have been laughing so hard I would have probably felt bad! I rushed back and took the jammies off his head to find him looking at me with a "What the hell just happened" expression. Thank goodness he has those gorgeous blue eyes!
One summer when I was about 10 nearly my entire family was struck down by pneumonia. It was probably the most miserable I had ever been. I can remember the moment it hit me and how terrible I felt for what seemed like weeks.
During that time I learned a very valuable lesson from my dad. "If you are going to eat something when sick, you might as well eat something that makes pretty puke" I know. He's a deep, deep man. But this was the advice he gave me right before getting me a bowl of strawberries. (Which did indeed make.....well you get the picture). Yesterday, Murph followed Grandpa's advice. He has a tendency to shove as much into his mouth as possible, which sometimes leads to gagging and regurgitation. Rainbow goldfish. I'll stop there or else you'll never again eat confetti icing on your cupcakes.
