When we were at the mountain house for the 4th of July, TJ had Adam outside during the beginning of a storm.  I went out and asked him to bring Adam inside, and TJ basically ignored me.  2 minutes later, the loudest clap of thunder ever sounded, and poor Adam freaked out.

Two weeks later, we were home and TJ had Adam outside once again.  A storm started brewing, and yet again, TJ kept him out too long, and KABOOM! huge thunderclap and trauma inflicted upon our youngest child.

Ever since, Adam will hear any sound (airplane, car, etc) and get a freaked out look on his face and say, "Thunder! Thunder!" (okay, it sounds more like "Thundah! Thundah!")  Sometimes he will add "storm" to it too. 

So today we were hanging out in the playroom, it is bright and sunny outside, and Adam runs into the puppet theater saying "Safe!  Safe!  Thundah storm!"  Apparently, he now has a safe place to stay.

Church 8/12/2012

I know I have been a little lax about updating the blog--so much to do, so little time!  I think I am going to try to go back to my daily snippets of hilarity whenever possible. 

One of these days, I am going to get to work on my scrapbooking...I only have 5-years' worth to get through.  Sigh.

Okay, so today at church, Lila was writing and drawing on church envelopes, and she wrote, "Lila," the "Mama," and then "Mimi."  She turns to me and asks me how to spell Adam.  I told her, and then she asked how to spell Daddy.  Within 5 seconds, she turns to me and says, "Mama, how do you spell magnifying glass?"
