Fun things that have happened in my house over the last couple of months:
♥ Cedar ate my contact lens.
I saw proof that she ate my contact lens when spraying her poop into the toilet.
♥ To Norah, I made the mistake of explaining “having your loins girt about with truth” as “putting on your truth panties.” Norah is memorizing Ephesians 6 as part of her classical program. I despise that she has to learn it in the King James Version because of such explanations.
Now Norah has “magic panties.”
♥ And yesterday I heard this: “I have to be the special-est because I’m the one with the magic panties. Cedar can’t be the special-est because she doesn’t even have panties. And if you don’t give me the hippopatomus RIGHT NOW, I’m gonna throw trash at you!”
I heard these words because Cedar got the hippo vitamin and Norah got the lion.
♥ Norah has also learned a bit about Russia. She tells me that Czar Ivan the Great put a gremlin in Moscow.
And WWII. She explains that the US dropped an atomic bomb on Nagasaki and “Hero She-Ra” in 1945. She’s been loving old She-Ra episodes on netflix.
♥ Cedar now speaks in sentences. But she speaks Ewok. I’m certain it isn’t English. Very cute curvy tongue kind of talk. It sounds like “duey, duey, oooo, phftt, phftt, phftt, leur, long, ohhhh, duey”
♥ During a stressed moment, I told Norah to give me some space. She did. And made up a song to entertain me, “Mommies are supposed to be nice. Mommies are not to be mean. Mommies do not need space. They want to snuggle all day. Mommies are supposed to be nice. Mommies are not to be mean. Mommies never yell. They play all day.”
♥ We removed the handle from the oven drawer under our stove because Cedar kept climbing on it. After a few frustrated attempts, she abandoned the drawer. Success! After a few moments, she returned to the kitchen with a stool. Now she can reach everything. Fail.
♥ Another success/fail: We discovered that Cedar loves fish oil. Great! DHA/EPA are good things. But, oh the breath. Oh the breath. And, no, please do NOT nurse after taking the fish oil.
