Apparently, "apparently" is Ethan's new favorite word. This morning alone on the way to school he used it at least 3 times. There is nothing funnier than hearing such a word being used by a 4 year old. Here are some examples of his use of the word:

Said while opening the door for me this morning and it closed on him: "Apparently that door doesn't want to be opened!"

Said after Adalyn dropped her grape on the floor: "Apparently she didn't want that grape"

Now, hear those statements with the emphasis on the word "apparently"- too funny!

There are many more examples but those are what are coming to mind at the moment. That kid just cracks me up sometimes! Remind me to tell you sometime of his use of the word "actually"...

Not Me Monday

It's Monday again which means it's time for Mckmama's blog carnival where I tell you all about the things I most certainly did not do this week. Hop on over to Mckmama's blog and check out what others are not doing as well!

  • This week I did not have to go to the surgery center twice to take family members for surgery. Adalyn did not have tubes put in her ears on Wednesday and Eric did not have his shoulder scoped on Friday! Whew, that would be just too much medical stuff in one week if it had indeed happened.
  • Ethan did not tell me this morning after he had been woken up several times that he "needed to let his head wake-up" and that was why he wasn't yet out of bed. That would be too funny!
  • I did not start reading "Gone With the Wind" this week because I had never read it before. Everyone has already read that by this point in their lives, right?
  • I did not decide to participate in Not Me Monday just because I saw that Mckmama had not yet posted hers and I might actually get a chance to be in the top 10 this week if I had it already done!!!

Your turn- what did you not do this week?

Mwwaa Wa Wa

Do you remember what all the adults sounded like on Charlie Brown? Well, apparently that's what Adalyn has been hearing, at least for the last 6 months or so. You see, she has had ear infection after ear infection for about that long and when they weren't infected they still had fluid on them. So yesterday we went in and she had tubes put in her little ears. She did great and was in a great mood afterwards. She did have yet another double ear infection when they went to put the tubes in so they drained all the fluid off and she is on antibiotic ear drops. Now we are hoping that she can hear better and hopefully she will start to talk soon!!

I do swear she said Thank You yesterday so that's a start :)
