Once Was Cold
For two years now we've had the tradition of taking the kids skiing on the day of or day before Stuey's birthday. This year, we went the night before and it was about 10 degrees outside. The wind was blowing at the golf course, it was 5:00 pm and the sun was starting to disappear behind the mountains. The thrill for the kids was doing the little mini hills at the golf course. Patrick would take them down the hills and the kids would be squeal with delight. After 45 minutes, the kids got cold and we quickly got them into the car to warm up their little hands and feet.
Lately, when Nora wakes up in the morning, if she sees popcorn on the counter, she says, "did you party, party last night?" And I smile and say, "yes-we watched a movie and ate popcorn." Sometimes before bed she'll say, "are you going to party, party tonight?" Funny how her idea of "party, party" is us staying up watching a movie.
Another one is if we ask her a question and she doesn't know the answer (or doesn't want to answer at the moment), she says, "I can't know".
