Evening Slices, because every once in a while they're all home at once

Seen this evening. putting on footie pajamas. Herself. One of her favorite phrases is "I do it." fresh from the tub as well. He's waiting for me to serve him some zucchini bread, which we made inspired by a pbs show he watched as he was home sick today. assembling her class Valentines. Meticulously. working on a PowerPoint he's been making. I'm not sure what it is exactly. Some kind of guide to Greek mythology. blaring Eminem from the basement while getting packed for the Klondike Derby. tap-dancing. He's been learning a Broadway routine that involves jumping, swinging arms, and tapping.

And later. in her crib asking for "potty talk." She means a book called Once Upon a Potty which has really captured her imagination.

Jesse...has somehow gotten his sheets all in a tangle and now they're in a heap on the floor and his mattress is bare. reading Ella Enchanted in bed. listening to a Rick Riordan audiobook in bed. simultaneously playing a computer game, watching a Jackie Chan movie, and chatting with a friend on the phone. playing a stupid computer game because for once he doesn't have any homework.


  1. Sad to miss it all. Thanks for sharing.

  2. But what are mom and dad up to? ...other than watching all of that?

  3. Ahhh, slices of life. The crazier, the better.

    I used to do vacation logs when my family went on vacation and one of the fun parts of that was describing what everyone is doing RIGHT NOW.
    When I read back over them, I can still see that moment in my mind's eye.

  4. Ding ding ding! This is your "time to blog" alarm going off.
