Jack informed Jeffry that we would need to go grocery shopping the next day for milk. Jeffry suggested we get a cow. Maggie then said; "The neighbors will say no."
Grandpa Steve and Grandma Holly brought Great Grandma Mary up on their Labor Day visit. Jack and Maggie were thrilled to have all that Grandparent attention and thoroughly enjoyed the books that they brought with them.
A couple of highlights:
the Littles sitting with GG, asking her about her skin, and GG's patience and humor in explaining everything to them.
Maggie admonishing Grandma; "don't talk with food in your mouf!" while not eating at all; and mom's insistence that Maggie "put some food in your mouth and stop talking".
At dinner one night, we were reviewing opposites with Maggie. Jack asked for some difficult ones. Jeffry said; "What's the opposite of a Republican?" Jack didn't know, so Jeffry whispered Democrat. Jack heard "dummy rat".
Jeffry: "Jack, do you know what a Rhodesian Ridgeback was bred for? [pause] They hunt lions."
Jack: "I know."
Overheard from Maggie's play one night:
"Superman to the rescue!"
"Spiderman save the day!"
And then a combination:
"Superman to the day!"
Overheard: "First, let's go get dressed. You can get dressed pretty, and I'll get dressed handsome."
I like the second one where it looks like he's strangling her instead of hugging her.
