The first funny thing happened a couple of days ago. Qavah and Annelise were here in the house very busy in their pretend world. I was making lunch, not paying much attention, when I spotted Annelise with a baby doll stuffed under her shirt with the head face down ready for delivery. I suddenly zoned into their play. Qavah was wearing her gospel armor suit. "Are you by any chance playing Mary and Joseph?" I asked. "Yes we are!" they said. As they skipped off to the library to continue their play, I heard Qavah ask, "Come on Mary, sit here at the table a while. Can I get you a drink?" Annelise, looking very angelic, and very pregnant, said, "Yes, I'll take some apple juice, Joseph." Qavah scampered to the kitchen to get the sippy cup of apple juice and returned. Annelise looked down and discovered that her shirt had ridden up on her belly and exposed the doll baby's head. With a look of surprise on her face, she exclaimed, "Oh look, Joseph! Our baby is hatching!"
The second funny thing happened this morning. Nehemiah had spent the night and came into the kitchen still in his pajamas, where I was getting breakfast. "Nonny, can I have my sword?" He asked. His pretend sword was put away so I retrieved it for him and asked, "Nehemiah, why do you need your sword so early in the morning?" He looked at me seriously and replied, "Cause I'm gonna kill a lot of giants today." He obviously woke up with his goals for the day set before him. I love that little man; he's a man of steel and velvet.
Kathryn and Qavah are doing well. We have been visiting their doctors this week, and keeping up with labs and medication changes. I will have more to report about that when the test results are back in mid-February. For this moment, I am looking forward to the weekend, and I plan to kill some giants myself in the form of dust bunnies. It's time for some spring cleaning.
