We've been eating a lot of soup around here with my vague efforts to prepare more vegetarian meals. We've started receiving a local delivery of organic veggies and fruit. I wasn't sold on the whole organic thing, but based on taste alone; I am addicted. (I am loving this chard and white bean soup.) I usually chop up all green leafy things pretty small so the boys eat them along with everything else. M. cracked me up when he was eating dinner and commented;
"Mommy, those green things are trying to sneak into my mouth."
E. asked me an interesting question today;
"What happens if a goose have goosebumps?" Sadly, I have no idea. He also wants to know;
"Do hockey players have penises?" And filed under new skills: E. can now draw circles.
I know I blog a lot about what the boys say to me lately. This stage of the game is amazing. We are about a month out from the twins third birthday. Everybody tells me three is challenging, but I'm finding M. and E. so charming lately. Everything they say is funny or sweet.
They both try to keep us from leaving the room at bedtime by calling out;
"I forgot to tell you something!" At lunch today, they sat across from each other, both trying to talk at the same time. It escalated into both of them shrieking at each other;
"I FORGOT TO TELL YOU SOMETHING!!!"
T. and I went to a local alternative school open house today to check it out for our kids. M. and E. won't be in school until 2014 so we're jumping the gun a bit. It was a great school, and I'm excited about the next stage of life. Going back to work, kids in school. But it makes me want to enjoy every regular old day home here. Going to the park, the library, the grocery store and hanging out making lines of cars and railways.
