Recording Memories

I originally started this blog for the grandparents and family to keep up with Lee. Instead of the constant flow of emails with pictures attached and funny stories circulating, I thought this would be more practical. As it turns out, I have enjoyed it so much myself, maybe even more than the grandparents. I look back at older posts and laugh out loud. It's sad to think how fast I forget funny things Lee said or get confused as to which kid said what. One day, I hope to look back and find all of this just as funny as I did at the time. Without further adieu, here is the latest crop of things I found funny.

The other day, Lee woke up a little hoarse. After a while, he was talking fine but kept telling me something was wrong with his throat. I asked him if it hurt, and he said, "Nope. My voice is just all cribbed up." I have no idea what that means, but he was very serious about it.

Matt was getting Lee ready for bed, and Lee said that he was working on his "chep list." Matt asked what that was and Lee said, "Blanket, chep. Friend to sleep with, chep. Milk, chep. Book, chep. Brushed teeth, chep." Getting ready to go to Nam's yesterday, I asked Matt if he had loaded Lee's bike, gator and helmet. Before Matt could answer, Lee said, "Chep, chep, chep."

I was working on some pictures on the computer, with my camera on the couch beside me. Lee ran and jumped on the couch, causing the camera to crash to the ground. I gasped, and Lee grabbed it really fast and said, "You'd better be thankful this didn't break!"

While Lee was watching tv in the living room, I went to the kitchen to get a drink, and he yelled, "Hey! Bring me back some Pringles, will ya?" (Yes, I laughed in private and then had a discussion with him on manners:-)

Matt and Lee were washing my car the other day, and Lee picked up his sponge and told Matt to "spray a little wet on it." Later he tripped over the hose and skinned his knee and elbow. We came inside to patch him up, and I sat him on the bathroom sink while I got supplies. The process took awhile, mainly due to his watching himself in the mirror and prolonging the crying. When we were finally done and he got down, he said, "Whew! It sure feels good to be back on the ground again."

While he was taking a bath, he tooted really loud. I said, "What did you do?" He was laughing hysterically and said, "I just made a bubbly surprise for you, Mommy!" Gee, thanks!

I took him to see Willy Wonka, Jr. and he loved the Oompa Loompas or the "Hoompa Loofas."
