The journey begins! oh, the long journey...Lauren was throwing up before we even go on the plane...in the bus, at the airport, and then throughout the flight. I thought for sure i would be able to get some dramamine at the airport (I had run out) but they did not have it until we reached Detroit, MI, 24 hours into our trip. Needless to say, after the medicine, she was fine. I will make sure I have enough on the return trip!
Hudson to Ma: You look so pretty! Our house is humongous. You should come enjoy it. Do you take a nap in your room? What time is your bedtime? Our bedtime is 8:00. When were you born? Do you have a bed? Ma, Maw, Mawl, Ma...look. You lost a tooth. Your like me. Your hair is gray. That means your old. Ok, I'll teach you spelling...Ma: say what? I don't know if I can or not. H: because your old. I know how to spell your name, m-o-l-l Ma: no, just M-A. H: well then your name is not maul it's Ma (like the phonics blend)
Lauren: there's sheepy things in the field. Me: There's sheep?
Lauren: No, sheepy. I said baah and nah to them.
Katherine: That's a chicken
L:no! They have things coming out of their heads.
Me: oh, that's a goat!
In her defense, the word for goat and sheep are the same in Chinese.
H: "We are driving into the house?!"
Me: yes, it's called a garage
H: well, that's interesting
L: mom, listen. I here a "caw caw"
At the park playing...Brett leaves on his bike. 1 minutes later Josh is standing there with us. Hudson (with a look of complete shock and amazement) to Josh: huh? Didn't you just leave on your bike???? How did you get here? (We didn't realize that the twins hadn't been together yet since we arrived)
udson: what are they cooking in there? Me: oh, that's called a dishwasher. Isn't it nice?
Hudson (after eating at the hibachi grill): now I know how to make fire!
Me (a little nervous at this statement): oh yeah?
Hudson: you mix mustard and ketchup!
Me: Regan, go pick out a Gatorade. I will buy it for you.
Regan: mom, can you come here?
Regan: there are so many to choose from. I don't know which one to choose?
First Wednesday night class...while we were waiting to pick up the kids, We were talking to the music teacher for kindergarten. She said: Well, Hudson wanted to learn everything about music in 15 minutes. .... Oh, that is so him
