As we were getting ready for soccer today Eli asked a bizarre questions - "What chores have I done for the month of October?" I said, "the only think I can think of that you have done consistently is fight with your brother." He said "No, I was thinking about something else..."
Got nothing,
But I will be coming up with a chore list.  It sounds like he wants some. Boy he will regret that question.

The Charmer

I am going to have to label the people in this story or else it will get confusing. So…

A few weeks ago Mom #1 from Isaac’s preschool class came up to me and said, “Are you Isaac’s mom?” I can’t deny him the kid looks just like me. “Well my daughter (Girl #1) is obsessed with your son, like to the point it is almost scary/embarrassing. She talks about him constantly. Sometimes I think he is the only kid in her class…” Mom #1 didn’t think that was as funny as I did.

So today Mom #2 came up to me and said almost the exact same thing. “My daughter (Girl #2) is obsessed with your son. “ Evidently the little girl told her aunt that she had this problem at school. That there is this boy in her class that she really likes, but that her best friend (Girl #3) already said she was going to marry him. But, Girl #2 continues, that is ok, I think I can change his mind…

Well Mom #1 over hears the conversation today with Mom #2, concerning girls #2 & #3. And said really suspiciously “What are you teaching your son?”

We are in for it…

While we eat...

Isaac and I are heading to Boyd's Orchard tomorrow for his preschool field trip.  During the hayride they give each child a donut and a cup of cider. Isaac can't have the donut (eggs) so I bought a donut pan this week so I could make him a safe option. The boys (John included) are obsessed with these homemade donuts.  I gave the pan a spin last night and made a cinnamon spiced donut rolled in brown sugar. It was delicious.  Tonight when we were getting ready for dinner Eli asked if I had made donuts for dessert.  Since I worked today I said, "No hon, not tonight, I didn't have time."  He consoled me, "It's ok mom you can just make them while the boys eat dinner."
Now why didn't I think of that...
