“Tell me what you are Thankful for tonight”
ISAAC: “That a couple of days ago we go-ed to Pump it Up Jr!!”
SAMUEL: No response except for naked jumping in circles
JOSEPH: “I will tell you TOMORROW when it is ACTUALLY THANKSGIVING!”
I am thankful tonight for the smell of pie baking, the Christmas music that is mostly-appropriate now, the rocking of my baby whilst he requests songs, the scratching of Isaac’s back as he tries to convince me that I actually love him more than Daddy, and the interactions with my oldest that are giving me peeks into who he will be as an adult.
Some of my favorite things Joseph has said this season:
“Mama, I’m really glad I’m a boy. Because on the first Thanksgiving the boys got to just sit there while the girls cooked and served them allllll the food.”
and just tonight, when I was asking him whether or not he would eat pumpkin pie,
“In my head I always think I’m going to like it, but then my mouth decides that its really horrible.”
And how Isaac is currently calling chili “Freezing” by mistake (get it? CHILLY?)
And for my new house.
And for Brian’s work from home job so he can give me attention whenever I want it (and stay with sleeping babies for chilly morning bus stop waiting)
And for Samuel saying “I love you” and giving me all sorts of kisses (and bites)
And OH! Just everything! I am a lucky lucky girl.
