H's 1st American haircut. He didn't really like the clippers, so I'm not sure how his hair was cut in Ethiopia. I assumed clippers. Huh. He did very well... I think the promise of candy weighed heavily on his behavior. :)
Language issues aside, and other issues like the fact that we all just met less than 4 weeks ago, they are just regular kids in so many ways. It's very heartening to realize that. Also, we're just regular parents, who sigh and roll their eyes, and make mistakes, and do the best we can. That also is a good thing.
There's a bunch of fun to be had. Y&H get hysterical about farts. We call them toots, and wouldn't you know that they sure enough know how to spell T-O-O-T. Lee kind of rolls his eyes, but I think toots are pretty funny too. We all blame others for our own. I tried to blame Murray (the cat) the other day and Y&H thought that was great.
Here's a video that has nothing to do with T-O-O-T-S, but shows our regular kids. Um, kind of... I'm not sure what H was up to, but he's 9 and it seems very age appropriate somehow. He can pull faces that make me crack up, and then he cracks up... it's all good.
