--After all is said and done after trying day, when I check on T, he is fast asleep on his back with the monkey his aunt gave him spread out on top of him.
--I love the way a toddler squats down on his haunches to examine something on the floor- the little round curve of his back.
--One evening as I get T into his jammies, K comes into the room to announce "It's just a rainbowy day!"
"Oh?" I ask. It's been months since it's rained, let alone rainbowy weather.
"Yah! The sky is all multicolored and the clouds are all colory!"
--When I shut off the sprinkler, T says "buh-bye" to the extinguishing stream of water.
--T gamely tries to eat spaghetti with his fork while K, meanwhile, wants to eat each noodle individually with her fingers.
--K has an imaginary friend, Klussany. Ingchri-ingchri-duction also occasionally makes an appearance. She says they live in Concludia.
--T loves to eat. One night after plowing through his dinner he looked down at his empty plate and said "uh-oh!"
--K:"I want to sing some more, but I can't think of anymore songs!"
--I get my toothbrush from the holder and T, who is watching me, reaches into the drawer and hands me the toothpaste.
--K: "'Sort of' means 'yeah', but not computely."
--K: There's just too many books to read on one day!" "I feel all bounceivity today!"
--K: "I am T's first friend." (Aww.)
--At one of the houses we look at, I am standing in the back yard and T is running to and fro on the small deck. I hear him stumble and fall. Silence. He lets out a worried "I just fell down and there's no one here!" yell. I call out "are you ok?" "Yeah!" he says bravely, popping up to smile at me over the railing.
