We played and played and played over the weekend. We had such a great time in the big pile of colorful leaves from our backyard. Throwing leaves, raking leaves, putting leaves in buckets, putting leaves in bags. Funny how work is not work when you do it for the first time.
In addition to the fun and the mini-breakdowns that just come with the territory – I have so very much enjoyed the things that have been on my kids minds (and spoken from their lips) these days. Perhaps some from Chase just to start with:
- The other night Chase was getting ready for bed and he and I were talking. He said to me “momma has mucho hair?” I said that I did. Then he said “Daddy has mucho hair?” Yes, yes… “Becca has mucho hair… I have mucho hair.” Yes you do Chase… short pause…. “Grandpa no have mucho hair.” Bless him this is so true on all counts…
- Friday morning Chase, Rebecca and I were deciding what shoes to wear. Rebecca picked out her pink cowboy boots. That looked liked a good idea for Chase and me so we did the same. Chase then told me that he had on “Cowboy” boots, Rebecca had on “Cowgirl” and that I had on “Cowmommie” boots!
- This year’s Christmas list is very short for Chase. 1) Truck, 2) Machina (some type of heavy equipment), 3) Bucket.
I am sure that there are a dozen other things that “I should be writing down” just from this past weekend alone. But this is a start. Perhaps I will let you know just what is on Rebecca’s mind these days in a coming post.
