Today is my wonderful Mother-in-Law’s birthday. This is the part where I reveal yet another flaw…I stink at putting cards in the mail. Seriously stink at it. I always forget, often times even buying, signing and addressing the card then forgetting to actually mail it. It is a design flaw in my character, I’m sure.
How’s that for deferring blame, huh?
What I lack in planning and forward thinking, though, I try to make up for in creativity…and a well timed phone call. The kids are speaking with their Bebe right now. I told them to sing to her…that’s better than a card, right? I also combined our handwriting and grammar lesson today with a little birthday surprise for Bebe. So, without further ado, I give you Sloan’s journal entry:
“I Love my Bebe because, she is very beuteful.” She lives in areKensaew, and she has 6 grandchildren. Cade is the oldest one. Cade has two brothers, Eli and Sam. I like when Bebe does creepee crolee. Bebe is a wonderful grama. When I see Bebe I am happy, so I run up to her.
His instructions were to write 7-8 sentences, with at least one of them a compound sentence. He started learning dialogue yesterday and I adore his random use of quotations. It just makes me smile.
Tia and Landon were interviewed separately on what they love about Bebe. Landon’s answers are so random I had to scratch my head. But I wrote exactly what he said.
I love it when Bebe:
Tia: “Goes somewhere with me.”
Landon: “Goes to da store and buys tennis shoes for me.”
I like to go:
Tia: “To the store and buy new shoes and clothes with Bebe.”
Landon: “To California with Bebe.” No – they have never been to California together…
Bebe makes me laugh when she:
Tia: “Talks funny wif her accent.”
Landon: “When she plays Crazy 8’s.”
My favorite time with Bebe is:
Tia: “Going out somewhere and going on a date together.”
Landon: “When we can go to Chuck E Cheese.”
When I see Bebe I like to:
Tia: “Run up to her and kiss her.”
Landon: “Go eat cotton candy.”
I think Bebe is:
Tia: “A great Grandma. And beautiful.”
Landon: “Pwetty and nice.”
I wish I could:
Tia: “Do stuff with Bebe.”
Landon: “Go on da boat wif Bebe.”
Bebe always likes:
Tia: “To make dinner for us and I like that.”
Landon: “Go to da store.” Both of these answers made me laugh out loud. Bebe knows why…
I always think of Bebe when I see:
Tia: “Her. Whenever she goes somewhere I ask to go with her.”
Landon: “A ghost.” HA!
Happy Birthday, Bebe. We love you and are always blessed by you.
