It Makes Me Cough...

It never fails...when we take Madison on a public outing, about 10 to 14 days later, she ends up sick. It's a pitfall of being a stay-at-home child...She doesn't get much "germ exposure".

Week before last, Madison and her mom visited Chuck E. Cheese while I visited the doctor's office. This week, Madison is fighting off a case of "the croup".

Maddie's mom always puts the humidifier in her bedroom whenever Madison gets a cold or a cough. This time was no different, except this time Madison says to her mom, "Take that thing out of my room, it makes me cough!" Madison is smart enough to associate the humidifier with coughing--she just doesn't realize that it is HELPING the cough instead of CAUSING it.
Madison, you are a funny, funny girl...

Children Say The Darndest Things...

Yesterday Madison was visiting me with her mom when she suddenly exclaimed "MiMi, I want to play with the Winnie the Pooh Playhouse!"

I responded by saying "I don't know where it is, right off the top of my head."

To which Madison responded "It's not on the top of your head!"


Today Madison wanted to eat at "Old MacDonalds"--and get a happy meal!

That girl sure knows how to make me smile...

Cade's Learned A New Word...

As you know, my husband and I have been busy for the past couple of weeks, dealing with some family issues regarding his mother. As a result of this, I am W-A-Y behind on spending quality time with my grandchildren--and that's been bothering me.

Madison actually asked to go home while she was visiting my house yesterday afternoon--for the first time ever! I guess I am just not very good company these days. In fact, I know that I am not!

Last night Cade and his parents came over to visit for a while. Cade was distant and busy playing on his own. I had to bribe him to give me some "sugar"! I hope to change that situation soon!

I was surprised to hear that Cade has learned some new words in my absence. He can count to ten, and can say "Oh my!" My favorite thing that I heard him say was "Golly"! It is so funny to hear him say that. He says "gol-lee"...just like a true southern boy!

I'm really hoping for a less dramatic week this time around, I'd like to relax and get to know my grandchildren--again! Wish me luck!
