Speaking of random, but also of marriage...Zoe asked me today:
Zoe: When will I get married?
Me: Not until you're an adult...if you even decide you want to, that is.
Zoe: I do want to..why not until I'm an adult?
Me: Because when you get married, you promise to be with someone for the rest of your life. You have to be sure that's what you want.
Zoe:......Maybe just for the rest of the DAY.
Now that Owen is finally feeling better (thank goodness!!) I've been having a lovely time with the kids again..I'm still really tired, because sleeping is still a struggle around here but the older Owen gets and the more they interact the more fun we all have together. Owen took AWESOME naps today, so Zoe and I had some time to hang out quietly. I realized that since I've become more interested in craft projects, I had completely forgotten how fun and worthwhile just plain ol' coloring with crayons could be. Zoe talked me into it today and I was so glad she did. She wanted to make some pictures for Daddy and we worked at it for a really long time. She's always shocking me these days at how much more she's capable of when it comes to drawing...here are hers from today:
|This is a map of where we live. The blue squiggles are Boulder and surrounding it is Brooklyn.|
|This was her take on what I was working on (below). She said the colors in the middle are our house "See? It's getting smaller and smaller and smaller?"|
|Nathan helped her start getting all the accessories put together|
|I love all the eyes!!|
