Well, the silence has been replaced by lots of laughing, squealing and talking...the sounds of my two little monkeys being back home with me.
At dinner last night Meme & Dan treated us to Gringo's. As I was putting food onto Zeke and K's plates, Kaelyn kept saying (over and over and over), "I want rice n beans Momma" "I want beans" "beans Momma, beans" (she is nuts about beans)...after she said it for what seemed like the 100th time, Zeke turned to me and said, "Man, Little Missy here is freaking out about wanting those beans!"
Later in the evening I was laying down with Zeke for bed. After a couple of minutes, out of nowhere Zeke said, "Momma, you are the prettiest Momma ever." (Awww...what a sweet boy!) Then he followed that statement to say, "and your breath smells like beans." :) Crazy child!
