Over the past 2 days the lexicon has grown to include:
trick or treat
bus driver (well, something close to that)
seeds (as in pomegranate seeds)
dip dip (aka pancake syrup)
Last night during dinner, Jason says "phone". I acknowledge the new word, "Wow. Phone." But he keeps on "Phone. Phone. Phone."
So, I ask, "Who would you like to phone?" No answer. "Daddy?" I ask. A great big smile and a nod. Yesterday was Comics Wednesday, so Joe was out visiting with IANO and Joe O. I grab the phone and we call Daddy.
The conversation was hilarious. Jason was very chatty and told his Dad about his day and about playing and dinner and on and on. Kevin piped up and added some chatter. Thank you Alexander Graham Bell. Little did you know all those years ago how important your invention would be and what good would come of it. Then we wrapped up the conversation. Kisses, goodbyes and then back to dinner. All pretty funny.
And now the news. Joe's cousin Brian is not doing well. Not at all. We were told he would probably make it through the holidays and into the new year. However this morning we learned that he might have just days. His cancer has spread to his stomach and things just couldn't be worse. If you are a prayer, please offer one up for Brian, Kathy and Merry. If you aren't, any positive thoughts you can offer are appreciated too.
Then, hug your loved ones and tell them you love them.
