Avery Loves Me!

I was trying to take a nap a few days ago, apparently one of my talents from a few posts back, but Avery just would not let me.  She kept coming back to wake me up and jump on me and get me to play with her.  I finally told her to go find Grandma and just let me sleep for a few minutes.  She went out and came back less than a minute later.  Exasperated, I said, "Why won't you just let me sleep?  I am so tired!"  She replied, "I love you so much, and I will wake you up every time you try to sleep." 

Later, I realized that she meant that she just wanted to be with me at all times because she loves me.  At that moment I thought differently.  But I got up and played with her, and she had fun.  And I didn't have a guilty conscience.

I have to look through Carter's school work about once a week.  I found this assignment.

Carter's Medical History

I was kicking my soccer ball in my backyard and I broke my finger.

I got sick and burped a few egg burps.

I got chicken pocks when I was one or two.

I got a huge goose egg on my leg.

I got a whole bunch of fevers. 

The End

If you know what egg burps are, let me know. 

Also, I took Avery to the store one evening.  We passed the chocolate aisle, and Avery exclaimed, "Ruffles, ruffles.  Please get me some chocolate ruffles, Mommy."  (I figured out she meant chocolate truffles.)
