Seasonal Meatball Minutes

On Thanksgiving Eve, Jair and J.D. traced their hands on construction paper and cut them out to make turkeys. Jair wrote on his turkey, "I love Thanksgiving." J.D. asked me to write on his: "Why do people shoot me and eat me on Thanksgiving?"

Today I read a story about the wise men to the boys. "The wise men brought gifts of gold, frankincense, and ... " I paused to see if they knew what came next, and Jair chimed in - "Murder!"

Ali and Jair's Book of Nursery Rhymes

The Nursery to the Rhymes - a book of poems created by my 6yo and 5yo, just for fun

A Cup and Lip - by Jair
Here's a cup
Take a drink
And then I'll take it
Back with me

The Moon - by Ali
Ho diddle
The cow and dog
The fiddle jumped over the moon
And the cat laughed

Reactions to the New Baby

Ali: "Dear God, thank you so much for giving me a baby sister like I always wanted."
"Annalisa's face looks like she has so many questions, and she just can't ask them yet."

Jair: "She is sooo cute."
"She is sooo pretty."
"You are the most beautiful baby."

J.D.: "Hi, Annie-leee-seee." (in a high-pitched voice)
"No! You can't touch the baby unless you use hand sanitizer first!"

Jonah: "Isa, Isa, Isa. Hi, baby Isa."
"Waaaaaaa!" (whenever he is told he can't hold the baby, throw her his favorite ball, etc. )
