A Terribly Cute Lincoln Conversation

BACK STORY: Last night as the boys were bathing, I was sitting on the couch watching TV.  I then heard Levi struggling, coughing...and I knew he was caught up in the water.  I raced into the bathroom, & literally slid (think sliding into home-plate) all the way into the bathroom & directly into the side of the tub, to catch him in time.  I was able to catch Levi on his side before he was under the water, thankfully.  In sliding across the floor, however, both my knees slammed directly into the edge of the tub.  This hurt my knees so badly that I cried for the next 10 minutes.  Both boys at this point were beside themselves.  Levi was screaming (mainly b/c I was moaning & rocking back & forth...ya know when things just hurt like fire & you don't know what else to do??...and you find yourself doing repetitive movements?...), & Lincoln was crying.  This conversation ensued:

Me: "Oh my gosh, this hurts so bad."
Linc: "Momma, are your legs broken?  What's happening?  What's wrong?"
Me: (moaning) "Oohhhh, I can't think straight..."
Linc: "Oh no.  MOM.  I think we need to go to the hospital.  You need to go see Dr. Lightning McQueen.  He will put a band-aid on it & you will feel all better."
Me: "That sounds like a great idea."
Linc: "Then we will come home, & I will tuck you in your bed.  I will crawl up in the bed with you & we will eat waffles.  Wait, no--waffles are too sticky.  We will eat bananas.  Wait, no--bananas make my poop hard.  I've got it!  We will eat peanut butter & jelly sandwiches together & we will cuddle.  And you will have a band-aid on your boo-boos.  And you will be all better by the morning time.  OK, Momma?  Is that a great idea?"
Me: (laughing) "Yep, that sounds fantastic."
Linc: "What a great plan."

Have a good weekend!

Disclaimer: My story kinda made it sound like the couch was way far away from the bathroom.  It's literally just around the corner.  I don't put my kids in the tub & then go for a run or anything.  Just sayin.

More pics of our park day...

"Sweet Baby Liam" (as Lincoln likes to call the nearly 18 month-old...)

Levi sliding down the slide.

One-handed on the handle-bars!


Excited.  And kinda scared too.

Daddy & Baby.  Are they twins or what?

Handsome 4 1/2-year-old...

What a sweetie-pie (Lincoln's term of endearment for Levi):

Going through the tunnel.

I hope your Saturday was just as fun & joyful as ours was.

If you need a reminder of what pure delight is...

P.S.  I have no idea why my font is sometimes underlined or in blue color, but just go with it.

my fantastic firecrackers

We had a fabulous Fourth of July. Bicycle parade, pool, tacos & fireworks in our front yard. What a way to celebrate the holiday. The boys are snug in their beds. Here are pictures of our day.

Preparing to leave for the parade:

Silly faces:

Me & my firecrackers:

Helmet? Check.

Waiting for the fire truck to start the parade.

Keeping up with all the bike riders.

Levi joined in the fun as well. But he chilled out in the stroller.

Later in the evening, we sat out on our front porch & lit fireworks.

Awesome day. Happy Birthday USA.
