Some Days are Slow Days

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Today was a slow day. We usually attend Rookie Rock at Sound Roots Music on Tuesday mornings, but we awoke to snow on the ground, and it continued to fall all morning. Sam, Juni, and I stayed home all day in our pajamas, and it was just what we needed.

Sam wore his Robin Hood costume from Halloween 2007, and ate breakfast while looking out the dining room windows at the falling snow.

And just because I couldn't think of a good reason to say no, I let Sam play with one of the dino masks for his 4th birthday party coming up right around the corner. The thing is, that most of the time, Juniper wants to do what Sam is doing, so here is where the dino mask ended up--on Miss Juniper. Isn't she cute?

I love snow days.

Vegetarian chili and fresh cornbread for dinner . . .

I wanted to sprout amaranth today, but I'm still reading on the process of sprouting, because I want to make sure I get it right.

One more thing, because I don't ever want to forget. Today Juniper walked into the kitchen while I was cooking, took my hand, held it to her face, and led me into the living room to show me something. It was so sweet of her. Later in the afternoon, she came in just to give me a hug. Tonight, she gave me a few kisses, and she even mimics the kissing sound that she's heard us make, so it's too adorable for words. I love her so.

Sam makes me laugh nearly every day when he helps me put things away. I'll tell him, "Sam, can you take this tissue paper and put it on my bed, and this puzzle goes on the shelf in your room." I'll go upstairs later and find the tissue paper and the puzzle on the shelf in his closet. I think he remembers the last thing I said, so both items end up in the same place, and where those items end up is close enough to what I said so that I am able to see how he hears and interprets things. What's funny every day, though, is that as I'm going about the house and doing things, I find things that he's "put away" and I immediately see how he misunderstood what I said and put the item where he did. It's so cute of him, and very much a 3 year old thing to do, and since he's only going to be 3 for a couple more weeks, I thought I'd write about it here.
