Avalee's 24-hour flu

Avalee got the 24-hour stomach flu. She was so sad that she couldn't go to preschool. I called her teacher to find out what her homework assignment was. The assignment was to bring a circle. I told Avalee. She looked at me and said, "Mom is it ok if I bring my bowl. It is a circle." She know longer has to carry her bowl around since she got better so she decided to take another circle.

Avalee was very calm when she was sick. Lincoln was very sad that Avalee would not play with him. One time she had him come and sit in the room with her. He was counting. He counts out of order and in Spanish and English. Avalee calmly looked at me and said, "Mom you really need to teach Lincoln how to count."

The funny things that kids say!

Who is bigger Avalee or Lincoln?

Today at the YMCA I put Lincoln on the scale. He weighed 37 pounds. He got off and Avalee got on and I didn't even have to move the bar. She weighed exactly the same.
