The girls and I each had a couple of surprises up our sleeves recently. It made for a fun week, for sure!
I had a huge meeting at work on Monday, so the week prior, I’d been working later than average, pushing out our suppertime, and the girls were waking up to my work papers all over the kitchen table. Tuesday, my meeting behind me, I decided to surprise the girls for lunch. I’d never surprised them before…and they were shocked to see me!
Baby A had just taken her seat in the lunchroom when I slipped up beside her. The entire time I was there, she could not keep her sweet little hands off me. I was showered with nuzzles and hugs and kisses. And when B got to the lunchroom, I slipped up on her. She was just as excited. Since A was almost finished with her lunch, we all went to sit with B’s class. After A’s class left, B asked if she could sit in my lap.
I know the girls’ public affection probably won’t always be so voracious. I’m definitely eating it up as long as I can.
And then Wednesday when I got home from work, the girls had a surprise for me. They love all things “scavenger hunt”, and they’d hidden clues all around the house…upstairs and downstairs…for me to find. They could hardly wait until after supper to kick things off.
I had the hugest laugh when I saw what was at the end of the hunt…a page-long letter the girls worked together to write. They each took a turn writing and sentence! I was majorly impressed with their effort, and their subject matter cracked me up, too.
Apparently the girls witnessed the paper delivery service that afternoon, and the deliveryman was smoking. A very strong response ensued.
The paper man smokes. We know that because we saw a smoking pipe in his mouth. We did not touch the paper because it smelled like smoke. Daddy put it in the recycling bin. He did not even take the paper inside because it had the remains of smoke on it.
Daddy called the paper people because the man who gives us our paper smokes. We told Daddy right away that the paper man smokes. We were very surprised that the paper man smoked.
We love you and we hope you had a wonderful day. We just wanted to tell you the paper man smokes.
A and B
Hee hee! I am thankful the girls were appropriately offended!
