Make great big muddy puddles.

Nashville Zoo

Will had a check-up with his neurologist Dr. Sharpe on the 21st. Patrick decided to take the day off and spend it with us. After leaving the doctor's office with a good report we took the boys over to the Nashville Temple to look around for a few minutes. We then headed to Ihop to indulge our children in one of their most favorite foods-pancakes. Before we got there, Patrick got pulled over by a Franklin police officer on a motorcycle who claimed Patrick wasn't wearing a seat belt. Oddly he had it on when the officer was lecturing Patrick though. Patrick didn't back down though and somewhat calmly told the officer he wasn't signing the ticket. Which seemed to make him a little irritated but he gave up and left the $10 ticket with us. At Ihop we almost choked on our food when William proclaimed, "LOOK AT THAT BIG FAT..........TRUCK!" sigh of relief.

We then headed to the zoo. This was our first time going and we thought the setup was pretty neat but were a little disappointed about the amount of animals there. The meerkats and the monkeys were probably the boys' favorites. The elephants got really close to us which was my favorite.

Brave Little Blue Engine

Will sprained his ankle last night and has said some things I don't want to forget.
  • After trying to walk on it and deciding he couldn't he announced that, "It really hurts. I just need to put some Vaseline on it."
  • While he was feeling pretty sorry for himself all cuddled up to me on the couch he said, so pitifully, "I wish I had a friend." I said, "I'm your friend! What do you think I am?" He looked at me awkwardly and said, "Well...yeah...but...I just miss Baylor and Kyndal." Nice cover up.
  • After deciding this morning when he first tried to push his big trucks around that he wouldn't be able to play so rowdy he said, "I just can't play anything!"
  • Then my favorite. After I gathered up several toys around him to play with, including trucks I heard him say "ouch" a few times followed by, "I think I can...I think I can." I'm not a fan of the The Little Engine that Could book because it's so long and boring. Majorly boring. But that made it worth the hundreds of times he has requested it and I've not been able to persuade him to another choice  lovingly complied, worth it. Good to see he's caught on to the message.
