Arrggg my Noah is a pirate! Or at least he was for a few seconds when Jacob put his toy eye patch on him
Jacob got the patch at a birthday party. It was really funny to watch all the kids who wanted to wear the patch but had such a hard time because they couldn't see right. Ben on the other hand...well let's just say he was an expert.
You will notice that Noah wears this green striped suit a lot. It is my favorite and I will be saving it as it is the outfit that will always remind me of Noah.
On March 17th I had a bad mommy moment. Here's what went down... Sophie was playing on my exercise ball while talking on the phone. Somehow she fell off. I remember her launching herself off of the ball, she remembers Ben pushing her off.
Blaming aside, she fell off the ball and hit her head on the open drawer. Since she was on the phone with a friend she went right on talking.
Hours later she came to me a said, "Mommy there is blood on my shirt and I don't know where it is from. That is when we discovered that when she hit her head it split open. As you may know head wounds bleed a lot. Sophie's hair was matted with blood in a stream down from her cut.
I had her take a bath to clean it out and when she laid down in the water the water turned red with blood.
In the end it was a minor cut that healed very nicely. I guess sometimes neglect turns out o.k.
Aaron's grandfather has a theory that if you do a task badly, enough times, you will not be asked to do it again. I am trying to figure out if that was Aaron's goal when he processed a butternut squash for Noah.
We had recently emptied a #10 can and so as Aaron cubed the squash he put it in the can. I guess it was handy or something.
When he was done he had the "brilliant" idea of cooking the squash in the #10 can. I tried to think of reasons why it wasn't a good idea but he had a response for each one so off he went.
While the squash was cooking he went to help bathe the boys so I had the task of processing the squash after it was cooked. I dumped it out into colander (which was hard because a #10 can doesn't have handles...) and there on the top of the steaming mass of golden squash for our infant son, was the packet of oxygen absorber.
A few days later I awoke to this on the counter...
