Time for the second posting of Conversations with our Kids.Nate is really starting to enjoy talking on the phone:
TT: "Is your Daddy home?"
Nate: "No, he's at work. I miss Daddy in real life."
Nate: "Is your Man Mikey Mike home?"
Gracie to a complete stranger inside the cafe at Nordstom:
Stranger: "Well, aren't you pretty, What's your name?"
Gracie: "My name is Gracie, but my Daddy calls me Grapey Mae, that's my baby brother Nathan."
Stranger: "Have you had a nice Summer?"
Gracie: "Yes, Mama and TT took us to see Dead People in New York city!"
We had one of our favorites for dinner the other night. Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Tomato Soup.
Gracie: "Mom, you burnt another sandwich."
Mom: "Darn it!" (I always burn at least one!)
Gracie: "Mom, you need to stay on task!"
Several days after a conversation with her Daddy about being a fourth generation native of Arizona:
Mom: "Wow, it's hot outside today!"
Gracie: "Mom, why did my Great Grandfather have to pick here to land... why couldn't he have gone to the beach?"
Gracie: "When I grow up, I'm going help people and animals."
Nate: "When I grow up, I be a Cowboy Spiderman!"
We live in a "remote" neighborhood and for the first time in almost nine years, we had dinner delivered to our house:
Mom: "Kids this is very exciting, we've NEVER had pizza delivered to our house before."
Gracie: "Mom, it's just Pizza!"
When Daddy came home from work last night:
Nate: "Daddy, you're my HERO!"
