So silly.

Sometimes you just need to pull your shorts up to your bellybutton and pretend you're Urkel while brushing your teeth.

Reasons to be upset on a Tuesday evening:

- It's time for dinner
- Emily is being "strict" about not blowing your nose at the dinner table
- You have to finish the math homework that didn't get finished last night
- Someone said you look like you might be upset and wants to give you a hug
- You no longer like pork chops and don't want them but also don't want the rice or broccoli or to make a sandwich
- Chris said you're 'at' the table when really you're 'near' the table

Sandwich hugs can't fix everything but they do make some things a little better...

"My favorite part of today was two parts: When I got to play Doodle Junp on your phone and when we were laughing so hard in your room like we were gonna die."

I love this kid. 

Feeling... Happy

Running to the car after dinner: "I just kind of feel sort of high right now!!" 

That means happy, right...?!?

A new breakfast food

Driving through the celery fields as they're being harvested: "It smells like a weird kind of waffle."

Back Home

Chris and J during talking time tonight:

"What's the one thing you missed most about Emily while she was gone?"
"Just one thing?"
"Yeah. The most."

"Just HER."

Move forward

I guess the secret to getting them to sleep with daylight savings is to run them ragged throughout the day - hike, skipping rocks, trail race, yard work (he mowed the lawn!) and a late-ish dinner. He was out by 9:10.
