Today's not-so-favorite moments included . . .
. . . Joy crying because she only liked two of the things I put on the table for dinner.
Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . Phillip watching the kids so I could sleep two extra hours this morning. Sweet bliss.
. . . Daniel repeatedly exclaiming, "Those bunnies are crazy!" as he watched Joy playing a version of chess with bizarre little animated rabbits on our computer. The pawn bunnies fought using plungers. Enough said.
. . . buying some Rainbow sandals. The price tag was a little steep for me, but I've heard they're incredibly comfortable and durable, so hopefully I won't have to buy new ones for a few years. Last year I wore a cheap pair of flip-flops paper-thin in a single summer.
. . . Phillip making an absolutely delicious smoothie.
. . . Joy reading scriptures to Daniel.
. . . this interchange:
Joy: Please don't do that.
Daniel: Why, Joy?
Joy: Say, "Why, Queen?"
Daniel: Why, Queen?
Joy: [dramatic pause] . . . Because there was a dodo!
Daniel: [uproarious laughter]
