I just realized I missed it last week. :( Bummer.
This Weeks Topic: Tell us a funny memory involving your child or children.
For somebody who doesn't have Alzheimer's, I have the worst memory in the world. I'm not kidding.... in the world... so, I have no memories of my children. It's kind of sad, actually. Luckily, however, I've been writing about them on various online forums for the past 8 years. So... I can just copy and paste! Here are 2 things I've written in the past about Child 1:
Child 1, his tutors and I all went to the fire house today; they've been working on his pretending skills and they've been doing "Firefighter," so this was our research assignment, to see an actual fire house, the real engine, the real hose, etc. Child 1 was totally unthrilled, he just wanted to run back and forth in front of the giant trucks and for some reason was terrified that if he got on one it would start up and ride away.
After our tour, the very nice firefighter woman who had been very patient the whole time asked Child 1 "is there anything else you want to see?" and Child 1 says....
"I want to see a fire."
We're at Costco and hubs got a smoothie. Child 1 asks him what it is, and hubs had just enough time to say "This is called a, uh...." before Child 2 knocked it out of his hand and onto the floor. So, that's what Child 1 called it!
"He knocked the Uh onto the floor!" "Oh, no, what happened to the Uh?" and then when I got another one "Can I have the cup of Uh, now?"
