This isn’t your normal blog post. Then again, we’re not your “normal” family, so I think it’s appropriate to have non-normal things on here.
The below are random tidbits of conversations you would hear if you were nearby… I hope you enjoy!
Early in the morning:
Catie (from the kitchen): Paul hit me!
Me (walking into the kitchen from the hallway): Did you say thank you?
At some point in the afternoon, I hear Catie and Paul playfully bickering while walking past them.
Paul: Oh, that’s it. I’m going to beat you.
Catie (dismissive): Whatever.
Paul: I didn’t hear you complaining this morning. If I remember right, you liked it.
Catie (tone changing to a blend of amused guilt): Well, yeah.
Catie (while making lunches for the next day): Paul, is that enough salad dressing?
Paul: No, I need more.
Catie (turns bottle upside down, starts shaking the last drops out of it): Damn it, just take the bottle (but continues to shake it).
Paul (watching Catie shake the bottle up and down): Aw, that’s it, honey. Shake it. Shake every last drop out of it. Oh, yeah. Now squeeze it tight. Hmm… Yeah…
Time passes and we’re getting ready for bed.
Catie: I’m going to take a shower.
Me: Make sure to scrub your weiner.
Catie: Paul? You need to come with me. Lena told me to scrub my weiner.
These are just the few tidbits I remember. I wish we had a recorder with us all day, because there are just too many conversations that I forget.
Until next time.
