Today was a sweet fall day.
It rained. Poured actually. So I was smiling to myself all day.
I am calm and happy when it rains. I love it. LOVE it.
We drove Cache to school and took the long way home looking at all the beautiful leaves and neighborhoods. These are the kind of days I will miss someday when they are grown up.
We watched a Halloween cartoon, did laundry, baked bread.
Gage and Nay caught snails and rain water and laughed at worms.
A few Naomi encounters just to help me remember my day:
She says to me:
"Mama, I am dust gonna play starfall on the computer and when you need me I'll help in just that minute."
(She meant right away)
I was impressed with her thinking ahead like that so I couldn't say no.
A few minutes later...
Me:"Naomi can you put the gator and plasma car in the back yard?"
N: "Uuugh! When I am done with my game."
Me: "Oh but you said you would do it right away when I asked."
N: "OH! Dat's right. Okay!" (much to my surprise) And jumps up right away.
Puts cars outside and screams happily: "Look what I found! Monies!" (It was a quarter.)
Me: "Oh! See you get hidden blessings when you are obedient."
N: (disgusted face) "WHAT are you talking about?" Rolls her eyes and goes back to her game.
Naomi goes to check the mail.
a minute later she comes back in bawling so hard she can hardly breath and tears. I thought the worst. (Someone tried to grab her.)
I held her until she could breath but she kept pointing outside.
Finally she chokes out.
"The Mail! The wind blowed it all over the place and its lost!"
I was so relieved I had to hold back laughing.
"OH that's okay, Lets go get it!"
2 seconds later she was running barefoot all over the neighborhood catching mail with me.
It was SUPER windy.
She was laughing and skipping. She has a little body like her daddy and it's cute to see her run like him.
