I don't know if its the age, the moon, the rain, the season or, most likely, gramma, cookie and juice withdraw. Whatever it is, we have had two wild ones the past few days. Is it normal while with gramma to consume unlimited cookies and gallons of apple cider, to have an endless stack of books being read out loud at all times, to run around like a banshee hours past bedtime? With our grammas it is.
But, back on the homestead it doesn't fly. Not that reading isn't a wonderful thing to do with Adi, but I cannot sit and read her 15 books without pause to even catch my breath. And well the juice and cookie speak for themselves, right?
In the midst of timeouts, 21 month old and almost 3 year old plotting on how to take over the house, stage diving from the coffee table, near stitches, and near broken feet we managed to put up a Christmas tree, decorate it, and throw the rotting gourds onto the front porch.
In the blur of regaining life after the thanksgiving coma a little voice has been singing sweetly for all to hear ...
sung to the tune of Frère Jacque
"Bells are ringing, bells are ringing
Christmas is here, Christmas is here
Happy birthday Jesus, Happy birthday Jesus
Awww Man, awww Man"
I'm just guessing here but I'm thinking that last verse is supposed to sound more like Amen.
I am also guessing, although it has not yet been confirmed, that this may be her Christmas play song at school.
Alright I was not going to add a photo but how can I leave these out?
