Carter was so anxious for baseball camp (a three-day basics clinic put on by the high school coaches & baseball players). He suggested eggs would be the best breakfast to give him energy, and then he looked all brow-furrowed and in thought at the table. I figured he was nervous about his first day, but he said he was actually trying to decide if he should go to TGIFridays or Dynasty Buffet for his birthday, which is still a month away. And also he says buffet like 'buffette'.
Grayson (just 5 years old mind you) has a conversation with a girl he recognizes at the park.
Him: Hi, remember me? From the lakehouse?
Her: What lakehouse?
Him: You know, my dad's boss with the boat?
Her: Oh yeah!
They run off attached at the hip.When they had to part he wouldn't calm down until I texted her mom to be sure they would be at the park again, same time tomorrow. They have a date.
I couldn't seem to let go of Ivy at bedtime last night and put it off as long as I could, holding her in my arms and singing all the songs I remember my mom and dad singing to me when I was a little girl, one after the other. I couldn't get but a few words into each one before she was asking me to "sing the monkeybird again" (hush little baby don't say a word, mama's gonna buy you a mocking bird.)
