Throwback Post: What Is a Typewriter


September 22 2013:

“Why don’t we use typewriters anymore?” … Thomas asked me today. Explaining what a typewriter is was another conversation a while back. He says typewriters seem so much easier. You don’t have to print anything cause you already have it right there …. (He was reading an older book that mentioned typewriters.)

Throwback Post: This is Not My Planet


September 26 2010:

Thomas says: “This is not my planet. I am from Jupiter. When I grow up I’m going to go into space and go back to Jupiter!” Plus, he’s taking Lillian with him! They are now having a conversation about what they will pack for the journey! It’s times like this I’m so grateful for these two and their imaginations!”


Throwback Post: 50 Days 500 Questions


October 4 2013:

Thomas’ observations last night during our before bed chat ritual where we talk about whatever he wants …. “I ask you at least 10 questions a day, probably more. In 50 days that’s 500 questions!”

Yes, Thomas, I agree. And he stumps me at least once a day with his questions! I also told him that sounds like a great book title, “50 Days, 500 Questions”!

Throwback Post: Blessed Times So Many Millions


October 3 2013:

Thomas asked me earlier what time I went to bed last night. I told him and we went about our business. A little bit later he came over and helped me wash the dishes and then cleaned the stove and told me he wanted to help so I could go to bed earlier.

I am blessed times 500 million and beyond that I get to be this little person’s Mama!! xoxo

Throwback Post: Best Sauce Ever and Great Teacher


September 30 2013:

I made the spaghettI sauce with Kymberlee’s awesome maters last night for dinner. Thomas and I loved it! We ate every last piece of spaghetti noodles. Still have sauce so we get to have more later this week! YUM!

Thomas says “You may not be the greatest cook but you make the best sauce ever!” Lillian adds,”You may not be the best bed maker, but you are a great teacher!” I’ll take that! Love those two up!

Throwback Post: I Know What You Will Say


September 29 2015:

Driving home Thomas was being grumpy and said he’s so mad at himself. Then he says, “I know what you will say.” Then he says to himself what I would normally say to him in this situation. Then he says something else and he knows what I’ll say about that. And then he says to himself what I would normally say to him in this situation. I was trying not to laugh out loud as my heart was truly touched. Then, he asks, “Well, aren’t you going to say anything?”. Told him I wasn’t as he had just said it for me. He says, “Yes, but I like hearing it from you.” I had a conversation with him and didn’t even open my mouth! HA! LOVE …. xoxo

Throwback Post: Weed Rackets


September 29 2013:

Still email purging. Good Gosh! I’m embarrassed to say how many emails I had piled up. If you never heard back from me over the years, Oops! I was nearing 5,000 emails! Had emails all the way back to 2010! At least I’m finding some Good-to-Read-Again emails and some fun one’s from Lillian like this one from August 2011:

“Weed Rackets, You might ask what are Weed Rackets? So I will explain it. There is weeds, right? And (tennis) rackets,right?”
