First let me apologize for not answering comments in a timely manner. I have a very strict routine about when I do certain things and answering comments is one of them and some days I just get way behind doing a project or prepping supper or whatever and that's what's been going on here lately.
It's been the most beautiful day. Laundry on the line under a blue sky and the first part of the day we still had the Weatherfords here because they decided just to stay the night last night. The boys were exhausted, Mama and Daddy were exhausted and martinis were involved. And so we feasted on delicious leftovers and the boys got a bath and used their fingers as toothbrushes and Levon, used to some sort of natural child's toothpaste declared that my toothpaste tasted better than track hoes.
"You better get that boy some Colgate," I told Jessie this morning.
We read books before bed and then August demonstrated how his daddy taught him to do a rain massage which involves many different massaging techniques, on both Bop and Mer and it was the most delightful massage I've ever had. August slept on his fold-out bed beside Boppy's side of our bed and he talked and talked and talked until finally I just said, "Okay. Love you. Night night," and turned out the light and left the room at which point he fell asleep immediately. That child is absolutely full of words and he endlessly describes inventions that he is going to make. They very often feature rockets and cars and things bigger than cars (just a few feet bigger) and chargers and super chargers and, and, and...
I can't even begin to tell you but I will tell you that when he woke up this morning and jumped immediately in the bed with us he was already talking about some other invention.
Levon slept in the pac'n'play in the room with his parents and I hear that he got up at his usual 5:30 a.m. and his daddy read books to him until August and Boppy and Jessie joined them and by the time I got up, there had been a great deal of snacking and TV watching and I don't even know what all. I told Jessie it reminded me of this wonderful scene from The Big Chill.
