Sam bit me the other night. He wasn't being mean, but he just calmly leaned over and took a bite out of my forearm. Man, that hurt! Now I have a bruise the size of a silver dollar. I did smack him on the leg. I hope he gets past this fast. Ben was a biter, as I recall. That wasn't fun.
Paul and I went to the Fair Tuesday, just for a little bit. We helped out at the GARB booth from 6-9, but got there around 4, so we had a couple of hours to walk around, which was nice - no kidlets! Afterwards we went out to the midway for a little bit and watched a couple of really scary looking rides. They were charging $25 for the rides. We both agreed that no 4 minute ride is worth spending $25, no matter how rich you are! I did have a fried twinkie on a stick. I had always wanted to try one and finally did. Oh, it was good! What's not to love - twinkies and deep frying? Yum, yum, yum! The only thing better would be if they rolled it in chocolate before sprinkling it with the powdered sugar!
Sam has started adding the word "need" after asking for things this week. It's so cute! He'll say, "shoe nee" or "baba nee" ("need bottle").
Last evening Will had a scrimmage game for football. We never could quite figure out where he was. I believe he even played at one point, but we didn't recognize him! Their first real game is next Friday and it ought to be a little easier to find him then because he'll be in black and orange and have a number on his back. Plus, it's just a freshman game, so he'll get more playing time. It would be easier to enjoy these games if I didn't have younger kids. My attention is constantly divided between the field (not that I understand what is happening out there) and the other three. Sam discovered that the bleachers make loud noises when you stomp on them so it was a battle keeping him from doing that. And then I'm trying to keep Ben from doing anything too wierd - it's hard all around! Maybe someday Sam will play ball and I'll be one of the elderly parents in the bleachers - elderly, but with no small children!
David got the desire to run last night and since the game was informal, we let him. He ran completely around the field without stopping - twice! I did not know he had that in him!
Well, I need to dry my hair and get back to my day. I very virtuously arose at 6:45 this morning and walked. Then I came home, fried up an egg and bacon for Paul (and piously ate only whole wheat toast with honey). You would think after being so good to my body, it would reward me with being very perky. Instead, I feel like I am about to fall over with fatigue! Where's the reward?! Oh well...
