Those troublesome numbers

This morning's conversation while I am getting Joseph dressed:

J: "mama, there are numbers"
Me: "Joseph - there are no numbers on your shoes - let's just put them on"
J: "mama, there are numbers"
Me: "I don't know what you're talking about. We just need to hurry and get dressed"
(finished getting Joseph's shoes on and set him down)
J: "mama, this is not going to work"
Me: "what"
J: "this is not working!" (holding out his foot)
Me: "ok - sit up here and let me take a look" (I put him back on the chair and yank off the offending shoe - and out fly 3 small plastic magnetic numbers)
J: "see! numbers in the shoe!!!!"
Me: "um, sorry"

fun times

It's just so much fun having a house with a staircase. . . . . . . especially for the animals and other various toys and that get to tumble down.

picture of politeness. . . . . or . . . .

The following conversation took place this evening while Joseph and I were throwing the ball back and forth in the living room:

Joseph: "throw the ball please mama"
Me: "ok - catch the ball Joseph"
Joseph: "oops - dropped it. I'll go get it" (runs around to the other side of the room) "I've got it!"
Joseph: "catch the ball please mama"
(repeat this part about 10 times)
Me: "ok Joseph - last time"
Joseph: "ok mama - I'll go put the ball away"
Joseph: (as he hugs me) "thanks for playing with me mama"

I'd like to say that he's always this poster child of politeness perfection. . . . but the horrendous scene caused by this same child at a Little Rock fabric store earlier today would prove otherwise. If I can muster up the courage to go back to this great little store it will most likely be in disguise and quite definitely sans child.

It's Raining Food

This morning at Bible Study my leader told me not to make dinner tonight. She said she would stop by this afternoon with our dinner. Yay! As I left her house our realtor called. She said that she would love to bring by dinner tonight for us. I thanked her profusely but said someone was actually already bringing dinner. Miss Sue said then that she would love to bring us dinner one night next week. Wonderful! We were home for about an hour when the doorbell rang. It was our builder's wife (who also happens to be the selling realtor for this house) with a bag from a local market containing some frozen gourmet soup and crackers. Yum! I will not have to cook for a few days.

Playhouse Disney Live!

We took Joseph to the Verizon Arena to see Playhouse Disney Live! for his birthday. It was his first concert and he was mesmerized. He clapped, danced and waved his little heart out.
