Molly the Dog or Molly the Person?

August 23, 2007 at 8:49 pm (Kids)

I was reminded of an Andrew funny this evening by my dad. He was telling a friend this Andrew classic. This was about two years ago when Andrew was just getting used having dogs around (he had never really been exposed to dogs much until David and I moved in together).

We had a babysitter named Molly and my parents’ dog is named Molly (we take care of her a lot so Andrew knows her well). One weekend night David and I were going out for a late dinner and Molly was coming over to babysit after we put Andrew to bed. When we put him to bed, David said “Molly is going to be here while you are asleep, so if you need anything, she’ll be here to take care of you.” Andrew’s response to that was, “Molly the dog or Molly the person?”

That story still makes me laugh two years later. Oldie but a goodie!

Another thing to add to this – I think it is soooo wonderful that my parents tell stories to their friends about Andrew and Delaney as if they were their own grandkids. It really means a lot to us!

Andrew’s First Day of 1st Grade!

August 23, 2007 at 8:12 am (Kids)

Andrew’s first day of first grade started off a little chaotic. Everything was running late so Andrew ran to hop in the car while his mom ran around looking for a new diaper for Delaney. In doing this, Andrew set off the car alarm. He was frazzled already because he didn’t want to miss the bus on his first day, and then with the loud sound of the car alarm, he got really upset and was crying and frustrated. Finally, they zoomed off to get Andrew to the bus stop and barely made it in time. But when Andrew started up the stairs of the bus, he had shrugged off the car alarm frustration and was ready to go! He must have been a little nervous on the school bus for the first time, not knowing anyone (remember they just moved to the new neighborhood two weeks ago). But then, as he walked down the isle, he noticed a friendly face – his little neighbor girl who is a second-grader. She asked him if he’d like to sit with her! And that was the start of Andrew’s first day of first grade!

Update on the shorties

August 21, 2007 at 8:00 pm (Kids)

One of the reasons I wanted to start blogging is to keep track of the funny things that Andrew and Delaney say and share it with our family (see Ginger, I said I’d do it!). So, here are a few of the recent ones –

Delaney loves bananas and for a while, she called them ‘nanas’ and just recently has been able to add the ‘ba’. David’s mom, Nana, came to visit and took the kids to target to pick out a present. I was with Delaney while Nana went to help Andrew find a racetrack. Delaney looked at me and started saying “where’d Banana go? Let’s go find Banana”. It seems she thought that since bananas were no longer ‘nanas’, then Nana must also be banana. Too cute. That reminds me of last summer when Nana was visiting and Delaney was barely talking yet and she said ‘nana’ – we all thought she was so good to ask for Nana already until we realized Nana was standing in front of a BAnana. I wonder how many more years of confusion there will be between the Nanas?

We took the kids to the Children’s Museum in Lafayette with the Browns. Delaney and Megan found a cushie spot with a bunch of books and Delaney picked up a book with an Elephant on the front and asked Megan to read it to her. Megan isn’t quite reading yet, and when she declined, Delaney said “I read the book” and started flipping the pages saying “Elephant” in a new tone after flipping each page. She is really into books right now!

Andrew starts first grade tomorrow and is really excited to ride the bus! I’m sure there will be lots of fun stories about first grade coming soon!

Keep posted for more cute stuff about the kids!
