Just simple silly stuff

Chloe has a weird imagination when it comes to making up names. She will definitely NOT be naming our new baby. :) Few people get to experience this with me, but this weekend, at my parents' house, they witnessed it. Matt became "Sha-nini from Tanini" which, she explained, is in China, and he was also my mom's cousin. For some reason, I couldn't stop laughing and I began to cry. She became concerned and got a Kleenex to wipe my tears, which then made me laugh more. It was just one of those moments that ended up being funnier to me than it probably was to any one else. But it was good opportunity to teach her that some people cry "happy tears."

Tonight, Chloe called me into their room because Hannah had taken off her diaper, which is a common occurrence at night now that she's potty training. I go into their room and Chloe has changed into her outfit for tomorrow; Hannah is buck-naked and trying to put socks on. They have such a great time in that 1-2 hours before they fall asleep at night. We don't restrict them to their bed because they really have no other time when they are "locked" (not really locked but required to stay in there) in a room together, forced to work things out themselves. It happens to usually be the most peaceful time for them too, when they seem to get along very well. I wish I could be a fly on the wall sometimes to hear them interact in that room.

Tonight, I also dropped my cell phone in their room and didn't realize it. Chloe brought it to me after a while. Matt, who came home after they'd gone to bed, walks in the door with a big grin on his face and tells me he'd just had two conversations on the phone with Chloe and that his mom had tried to call me to say that Chloe had just called her too. :) I asked Matt if he told Chloe to bring me my phone, but he said that she kept saying she'd get in trouble if she came out of her room so she would not bring me the phone. I suppose this means I should tell her to never use my phone without asking either!

I can't remember the other stories I wanted to write down. Maybe tomorrow!

I have to say that the call from Chloe was one of the funniest moments I've had with her lately. She went on and on about she and Hannah's sleeping arrangement, they already had their dinner and Daddy too, they would see Daddy in the morning etc. All the while I can hear Hannah in the background saying "It's Gramma. It's Gramma." Who took Mama's phone? Hannah did(it's always the other kid right?) Where did she get it? Behind the cradle. And you know Gramma's number? You're number 8 right? Where's Mama, in the kitchen cleaning up before Daddy gets home. Could I talk to Mama? No she's in the kitchen. Could you take her the phone? Sure. Click. Love Gramma T
