love it when this happen. It's that "double over because your stomach hurts and tears streaming down you face" type of laughter. I have many childhood memories, sitting around the dinner table with my Mum, Dad and sister, doing just this. I used to think that my sense of humour is typically British, but these I wonder...
I tend to laugh at the things in life that most people don't find funny, a trait I share with my sister, who laughs at the same things as I do. When she told me about this movie, I knew it would be good, but really i had no idea! Talk about funny! There aren't many movies I will watch twice but this is one of them.
Something else that made me laugh yesterday was Luke. Now that he's really starting to vocalize what he is feeling, we are hearing the funniest things. Yesterday, we went to the store with the intention of getting him some pants that he would wear, as it's becoming more and more difficult to get him out of his jammies each day. I failed miserably and we ended up with yet more jammies. At least he went for the larger size which will last him a while. I chose that option over an embarrassing meltdown in the store, though he was really cute asking the store assistant if she had jammies with motorcycles on them.
On the way home, we passed the base hospital and Luke proceeded to describe his experience of having his shots several weeks ago. In a very high volume and emphatic voice, he proceeds:
" DOCTOR. VERY. BAAAADDD. HE. SHOT. ME. VERY. HARD. HE. TAKE. PIECES. OUT. ME"
It's interesting to hear how he perceived the experience.
Ella is doing better at school. She continues to tell me she misses me when she gets on the bus in the morning but she goes without any problem. She loves her teacher and has a "mystery" friend, whose name remains so far unknown. This week she has developed an interest in drawing mermaids. She saw someone do it and now is drawing them over and over again. I remember at school, I was probably 7 years old, doing the very same thing. At first it was Kingfishers, of all things, and then a cute dinosaur I had seen someone draw. So many similarities.
Another little glitch is that Luke has misplaced Carter, his beloved little dog, who is his comfort. I say misplaced because he is in the house somewhere because we haven't been anywhere with him since he was last seen. We just don't know where he might be. I've turned the house upside down. I've even looked in the oven, but no joy. In the meantime, he's taken a liking to his "baby jaguar (or jaguwater as Ella calls it)" even though it's actually a tiger :)
Ronalyn's home tonight. Looking forward to seeing her again.
