The Chronicles of Mommyhood

Everyday Life

After a very busy July, it is nice to have some quiet days at home.

Everyday, ordinary life during which bathrooms are cleaned and boys play. Green beans and tomatoes are pulled from our tiny gardens. Here are some sweet snapshots:

  • Ignoring the stacks of board books, Dash heads to the bookcases with Mommy and Daddys' books. He deliberately picks out "The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius" and demands, "Read that one." Um....ok.
  • Dash pleads for more "cookie" meaning the pots de creme in Mr. Incredible's hand. He tells Dash, "Say pots de creme," to which Dash responds "Pray for us." There must be a St. Pots de Creme somewhere. It is almost a heavenly dessert...
  • Dash says, "Oh, Yes," or "Oh, Yeah" to everything instead of just "yes". It makes everything seem so dramatic.
As in: "Dash, do you want to go to the park?" or "Dash, would you like some sweet potatoes?" or "Dash did you go potty?"

"Oh, Yes!"

  • Jack-Jack and Dash play rousing games of peek-a-boo. Dash stands behind Jack-Jack and runs from one side to the other until all (including Mommy) dissolve into giggles.
