(Lee's two cents)
So it's been two weeks since we got on the plane and I'm just now starting to feel like writing. I'm so glad that Chris has had the fortitude to blog daily.
Just so all you parents know that African kids are just like the "Made in the USA" ones, we were eating dinner on the porch the other day when after trying about 8 different psychological approaches to get H to eat a rice dish, I finally took a bite myself and said, "Try it." Y looked up and responded, "Toilet?" (A word they both know very well) "No" I replied, "TRY IT." "No toilet?" She smiled, and took at deep breath, "toilettoilettoilettoilettoilet..." Gah, you'd think she was 6 or something. It wouldn't be funny if it wasn't so funny.
Also, I'd like to note that while on the all-banana, wholegrain, no-sugar, no-fat, rice, water-only, oranges, Cheerios, and picked over airline-food diet... I have lost 8-10 pounds. I supplement this with a steady regime of lugging an 82 pound boy around the house for muscle tone. Add kicking and/or a staircase to really knock those calories off.
Oh yeah, I'm feelin' the burn!
