I read Bradley the list of Dr. Dreadfuls experiments he could make, “Bubbling brains, zombie barf, skin, or a zombie bug mixture. Which one do you want to make?”
He picked the bubbling brains.
He measured, poured, mixed, and stirred the crazy concoction. It started to fuzz and fizzle over the edges.
“It’s ready to eat,” I told him and passed out the spoons.
Bradley was a little worried at first. “No, it’s not real brains. It’s just candy.”
Collin loved it.
It’s been a crazy busy day. Up early because Collin wakes up too early. Work. Visiting with family. Chasing babies. Dinner. Dishes. Laundry. It’s been a very busy day.
Now, late at night, I feel like my brain is starting to fuzz and fizzle over just like Bradley’s experiment. I’m tired. I really wanted to do his Zombie lab another night, but he has been looking forward to it since he first opened it up Christmas morning. So we had to at least do one experiment. It was fun.
AND! AND! AND!
Terri, who watches the babies during the day, called me at work.
“Elsie walked! She just took off like she has always been walking. She walked from the living room to the dining room.”
I was so excited all day. I couldn’t wait to get home to see her walk.
I bragged all day about her walking at work…and also mentioned, “Watch, when I get home, she wont do it.”
And she didn’t. It wasn’t until right before bed that she started walking. She just took off. It was so cute. (And soon I will catch her on video.)
I hope she starts walking more. She will be able to keep up with Mallie and Collin. And I have really been worried about her knees. She walks on her knees almost all of the time. She’s fast on her knees, but we have all hardwood floors. Her poor little knees are like elephant knees, all calloused and red. You know that’s got to hurt. Every night I put Aquaphor on her raw little knees.
So hopefully, she will start walking on her feet more often.
Keeping my fingers crossed. (I know she will do it eventually, I have never seen a two or three year old walking only on his or her knees. She does things when she wants.)
