Snapshots in Conversation

Not that I want you to miss out on yesterday’s Chocolate Cake but this was so funny I had to post it toute de suite!!!  (Right away!)

As I laid out everyones clothes for church tomorrow Joel sat in the bathroom with the kids while they shared a tub.  I came in to do the washing and began to “prep” them that after bath time it was bed time.  No going back downstairs to play.  Aidan protested that it was early and to that I clicked of the bathroom light momentarily leaving the four of us in the blackness. Quickly showing him how “late” it was.  When I turned on the light the conversation went like this:
Aidan:  When the light was off I could still hear your voice.
Me:  I know baby, that is because you see with your eyes and you hear with your ears.  Those are called senses.
As I washed him up I explained further…
Me:  You feel with your skin, that is called touch.  And those bubbles that got in your mouth earlier, you tasted them because you taste with your mouth.

Just then other bubbles came floating up to the service…
Me:  And you smell those little farts of yours with your nose.  So you hear with your ears, taste with your mouth, smell with your nose, touch with your skin and see with your eyes.  Those are the five senses.  Taste, smell, touch, hearing and taste.
Aidan:  And farting.

    this is off the subject of this post 🙂

    I just thought how about all 7 and counting come to your place for a few days and crash! it would take “cooking for the masses” to a new level 🙂

    maybe i could even wait till babe is born so it would be 8 🙂

    if your cuz lives in the town you mentioned previously, she is about an hour + away from here.

    i am not going anywhere for quite a time. I would only be up for a day visit for you guys, not the camping thing 🙂 i know you understand. we are getting our bearings here and i need a year under my belt. This is a different sort of place than the last. it would be a lot to have to do hot water for extras :), and more…
