Real Life...


I came back from feeding the ferals this morning and went to Longs before coming home. Long is a drug store, but with lots of stuff other than drugs.


I saw a mom and her son, probably 2-3 years old and listened to there conversation. The mom was very funny. We reconnected in the store and this is what I heard as they were walking from the frozen food section through the liquor isle. Verbatim. "Mom, I'd like some beer." Mom , "What!!!???" Mom. "Just because you can read the word doesn't mean you understand it! You can't have beer. We don't even drink beer." We came around the isles at the exact same time in absolute tears and laughter and just hugged one another. It was too funny. When I left home to go to college, I had a 6 year old sister and a 4 and 3 year old brother. They made me laugh every single day of my life. And when I left, that is what I missed most. The innocence and the laughter. I love kids. I love how pure and innocent they are. I love how they make me laugh louder than anyone else.

Kids do say the darnest things. Nathan came home from school today with a neckless his teacher had given him. It is a red rectangle and has the word happiness written on it and below it I think is the Chinese version of happiness. They learned about the Chinese New Year yesterday, and I guess the teacher passed out the neckless today. Nathan told me that he wanted me to buy all of the necklesses. I told him that his teacher got them from a store that only teachers can go. He promptly told me that I was an art teacher. You see, I volunteer one day a month and do an art project with his and Forrest's class. His teacher called me their second art teacher on my last visit. And he remembered. So now he believes that I am a teacher. I laughed because it was so cute and wonderful that he remembered.

Dear Suzanne,
Here I have a 2 year old every single day amazes me with new words. She started singing in my language too.
The other day she was singing "she is a super duper mamma"...I have no idea where she got it from. We don't even watch TV.
Beautiful picture!
love

That story made me so happy. There is nothing more innocent and beautiful than a child and their laughter. It's the one thing that can always make the sun shine on a cloudy day and make my heart sing. I love kids. Everything about them. And I hope one day my house will be filled with all the love and laughter those little devils can bring. =] Thank you for sharing. And thank you for being you.

XOXO, Savannah

Bindi ~ I don't know where they get stuff. I just remember little babies at home making me laugh every single day with the words that come out of their mouths! The imagination! When I heard that little boy say "Mommy, I'd like a beer." I thought I would die. After she and I laughed and embraced, she said, "we don't even drink!" So we laughed harder. It's just so fun to be around kids. Half the stuff my little sister and brothers said we hadn't a clue where they got it. They're like little sponges, always listening and absorbing. I still can't believe I never had kids, nor can anyone else.

Love you dear. Thanks for always being here.

XO

Suzanne said...

Savannah,

I love you too sweetie. Glad to bring a smile to your face. Go back and read some of my old posts. You'll die! Lots of crap happens around here! Not just weekly...daily!!! I have no idea why, but it is such a funny house. You know me, I love to laugh and fortunately, I'm able!

I love you honey and I'm so glad you're back.

XO

Hi Suzanne!

Oh, I love that story. The things kids say are hilarious. I have two nephews and you just never know what's going to happen next. My favorite is my 3 year old nephew looking up at my husband after being told to behave and saying "You wanna piece of me, man?!"

P.S. I LOVE the photo of your two babies. That is what contentment must look like.

Suzanne said...

Cecile~it was wonderful to talk to you. Honestly. Thank you for trusting me. I think everything will be okay.

I can't believe that beautiful, sweet voice is attached to that head!!!! Go figure! I love it!

That's a nice story..and the things kids do gets you unadulterated happiness. That's one thing i hate about growing up -inhibitions replacing innocence. have a nice day. love - elusive.

Suzanne said...

Hi Bindi,

Just read your current blog and love it. I shouldn't even be here, but had to check on something. Now I'm going to go lay down. We'll chat tomorrow if you can find a few extra minutes to say hi! Hopefully you'll take the time to read Robyn's current post and listen to the lovely video she left me. You know me, tears where just rolling down my face. I had to listen quietly because my head hurts so much, but even on low, it was awesome. I have such beautiful, thoughtful friends. Don't we all!

Love you,
Suze

Hi sweetie,

Just dropping in to say hello and send my love.

This photo of these two kitties pressed against one another, peering out the window is just much too precious indeed.
