Two conversations with Lauren

Because we have company this weekend (I know, Yella, you're not really company, or I would have cleaned my house for your visit, right?), Lauren had to give up her bedroom for a couple of nights. Since the boys have a twin on top/double on the bottom bunk bed, I decided she could just sleep on the bottom bunk with Ethan. This was, of course, an exciting and novel turn of events for all three of them, so there was a lot of talking and laughing going on in that room long after "lights-out" time. After several warnings I finally walked in and said, "Okay, who wants the first spanking?" Without skipping a beat, Lauren said, "How about Ethan?"

Today was Pumpkin Patch festival day at Josh's school, so the kids and I (and Daniella and her daughter Maddie) spent the whole morning at the school watching and helping. The teachers and other parents were so great to include Ethan and Lauren and Maddie in all of the activities, one of which was decorating small pumpkins. Lauren was drawing on hers and said, "Mommy, see the pumpkin is crying and sad." "Why is he sad," I asked. "Because he wants to be a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie."
