Things That Make Me Smile 10/21/11

1. Jake asked, "Was it in the 1950's when there were pirates?  . . . Or was it when Jesus was born?"

2. Alyssa: "What's in my ear?"
Me: "Your finger?"
Alyssa: "No."
Me: "Earwax?"
Alyssa: "No. Seeds. But they don't grow into lots of ears. They just grow into one ear."

3. Jake said, "I can't wait for my adult teeth to grow up."

4. Our pet hamster, QT died this week. Alyssa was devastated. It was slightly humorous since they never played with it. I asked her, "When was the last time you talked to her?" She said, in a very sad weepy voice, "When she was running around in her ball . . . when she was alive." Then she didn't want to sleep by herself. I told she could sleep with a stuffed animal. "But I want someone to sleep with me . . . who's alive." She was very dramatic the rest of the night. Jake, on the other hand, who kept the hamster in his room, asked, "Can we flush it?!?" 

5. Jake said, "Band-aids don't taste good even with cinnamon on them."

6. Dancing with Zac in the living room and seeing his faced filled with laughter and joy.

7. Zac has become addicted to play dough. Every day this week, first thing in the morning, he went to the cabinet where the play dough things are kept and pulled them out. He has sat at our kitchen table for hours this week mashing and exploring and rolling. The other two have joined in. I love watching the three of them playing together and giggling. Play dough is so beneficial in aiding creative play and for building fine motor skills. It makes a mess of the table and floor, but it cleans up easily. Their smiles and enjoyment far outlast the mess.
