I have too much going on in my life right now to write a coherent blog post. I need to prepare for cell tonight (I usually have my lesson prepared weeks, or at least days, in advance, but I am SO distracted by the encounter) and make sure I am fully ready for the two lessons I'm doing at the encounter. I guess it's not that much, but it is BIG stuff.
Today Judah and I went on a bus ride while my mother in law watched Samuel. Judah has been wanting to ride a bus for a LONG time, so when I heard the mother's club was going on a bus ride I jumped on the chance. I wasn't so sure about it, especially with Samuel, so when Ellie offered to watch him it worked out perfectly.
We caught the bus downtown, then made an hour loop back to where we started. Judah really liked looking at the cars, the buildings, and the other people on the bus. He wanted to know everyone's name so, like always, I had to make them up! : ) We then had lunch with my mom and she bought Judah the cutest new shoes.
Last night I was reading books to Judah before bed and he noticed my collarbone and asked what it is. I told him it's my bone. He asked, "You eat it?"
I was like, "What?"
He said, "Oh, doggy eat it?"
Haha, I was laughing hysterically. He'd heard of bones that dogs eat, but he'd never head of bones in our body. This boy is so smart! But, how do you explain some things to a two year old?
At Samuel's 9 month well baby the pediatrician said he can pretty much eat anything, with the exception of choking hazards or things he could be allergic to (nuts, peanut butter, milk, hot dogs, etc..). So, I've been feeding him tiny pieces of wheat bread that he really seemed to like. All yesterday he was super fussy and they even had to call me to come get him out of the nursery. Well, there were nuts in the wheat bread! I think, first of all, they upset his stomach because he can't chew them and his body couldn't process them. Then, they gave him the worst diaper rash. I felt so horrible, I seriously wanted to cry hysterically. But, I just kept telling myself that all sickness/pain is under the cross and that it was a mistake! He's much better today, though.
