A collection of short notes Sara has been saving up since we’ve both been too tired for longer posts.
Conversation with Besh on 2/16 while Besh was in the backseat and Sara was driving.
Besh: I want to go on a trip.
Mommy: Me too! Where do you want to go?
M: That would be great. But Isaac is too little to go to London.
B: Okay, how about this plan? I go to New York with Nonny and Zeyda.
M: Can Mommy and Daddy come too?
B: No, just Besher. And Nonny and Zeyda. No Mommy, no Daddy.
Besh has this singing, dancing Pablo doll from the Backyardigans. Got it a long time ago even though he’s never seen the show. It sings really, really loudly, so we weren’t too disppaointed that it’s voicebox gave out even with new batteries. Sara explained how it wasn’t working anymore, so Besh had the following heart-to-heart with it. It was almost enough to make me want to get him a new one. Almost.
Besh: Birdie, I love you. But you are broken. So we have to throw you away. But I love you and I will miss you. Bye, bye, birdie. I will miss you.
Conversation with Mommy on 2/17:
Besh: Mommy, when Isaac grows up, he is going to be my very best friend in the whole wide world.
Mommy: I sure hope so, Besh.
B: He is, he is.
M: What made you think of that, Besh?
B: I just DID.
Among other fun things Besh says right now, beautiful is pronounced bee-YOU-tiful.
Said to Gamaw (a teacher in California) during her last visit: Do your students call you Ms. Gamaw?
Said to Mommy: If we had another baby, we’d have to sell Isaac!
Also said to Mommy: Mommy, I am bigger than Isaac but I am still just a little kid.
