Sweet Boy#2 is playing tug-o-war with Princess Leia Freyja and she gives him the puppy eyes–“She’s trying to convince me to give it to her by way of ‘Puppy Look.'”
As I am helping Sweet Boy#3 with his report, I call the animal he is studying a “duck-billed platypus.” Sweet Boy#3–“Actually, that’s a misnomer.”–I love it! He must have picked up the word “misnomer” in his research.
Sweet Boy#1–“(sweet boy#3) Stop sitting on The Princess’s snout!” –Poor Leia (our Newfoundland princess) was getting smooshed.
Princess Leia Freyja walks into the living room and sees that once again Sweet Boy#2 has set his everlasting gobstopper down on the coffee table. She swoops in, picks it up, and is walking around the house with it completely inside her mouth. The only way we know she has something is by observing that very satisfied look on her face. Sweet Boy#2 is horrified and immediately rescues his gobstopper for a thorough wash.
Which makes the next quote so very ironic.
I dare to hug Sweet Boy#2—“Ahhhh, wipe, wipe!” He holds out his hand demanding a wipe, just like Adrian Monk from the show.
Sweet Boy#2–is feeling sick–“I feel bad enough that I’ll take a hug.”
I am adding marshmallows to the boys’ cocoa–Sweet Boy#2–“More! More! My cocoa will run white with marshmallows!” —we’d just watched The Tick Loves Santa wherein the villain shouts: “The streets will run red with Santas!” –I think marshmallows are probably better than both rivers of blood and an overabundance of Santas.
