In preparing to speak to the THINK and CACH homeschool support goups this week, I haven’t had (and probably won’t have) much time to blog. I’m very excited about both of these meetings because I get to see a few long lost homeschooling friends AND meet a few blogging friends! Not to mention, I get to visit with Melissa since one of the meetings is in her neck of the woods! :o)
Before I sign off for a few days, though, I thought I’d leave you with another Eli post. Toddlers make for great writing material! He’s just 20 months old. You might think that’s too young to be a coniving little stinker, but I’m here to prove you wrong…..
He and I walked into the office where he had overturned a chair.
Him: (Pointing ) Oh! (means: uh-oh)
Me: Oh, no! Who did that?
Him: (without hesitation or batting an eye) Bubby.
Me: No, Caleb didn’t do it. Who did it?
Him: (again, without hesitation) Thithee. (sissy)
Me: No, Mahayla didn’t do it. Who did it?
Me: No, Daddy didn’t do it. Mommy thinks Eli did it. Did Eli do it?
Him: (covering his eyes thinking I can’t see him)
Me: Eli, did you knock over the chair?
Him: (smiling a devilish little grin with his head tilted and eyelashes batting) Uh-huh. (in a joyful sing-song voice)
Boy, am I in trouble.
