A Family In Deep

Deeeeeeeeep Thoughts: By Bode

“Mommy mommy mommmy mommy mommy mommy mommy mommy?”

“Yes, Bode.”

“Choo Choo Train!” [Then repeat 1,000,000 times per day, substituting the occasional truck and ball.]

Deeeeeeeeep Thoughts: By Hadley

Part I: “Mommy, do you wish I could be ice and you could be the water to make me?”

Part II: When driving past Colorado University, I schooled Hadley on the benefits of a good education. After a mind-numbing lecture of how she can study to be anything she wants, I queried,

“So, what do you want to be when you grow up?”

“A princess.”

“Gee, that’s nice. But what is your back-up plan if the princess gig doesn’t work out?”

“A queen.”

Deeeeeeeeep Thoughts: By Amber

It was a rare afternoon of leisure. Hadley was at a playdate and Bode was napping.

I sank into Jamie’s large leather chair in front of the computer, stretched lazily, reached for a black marker and sniffed, long and deep.

But then I wondered–

Is this normal?

Deeeeeeeeep Thoughts: By Jamie

In Case You Missed It Part I, this was part of the post that I wrote from my deathbed when I had salmonella:

If you don’t hear from me for a while, blame the pumpkin. I don’t know why. It just seems appropriate. As my last request, I plead with you not to let Jamie put one on my tombstone. Because he’s just kind of obsessed like that….

In Case You Missed It Part II, this was the comment Jamie left on my blog:

I actually plan on burying Amber in the big pumpkin. I expect to grow one big enough that she can easily fit inside. That way my two great loves can be together for eternity. What can I say? I’m a romantic. – Hunky Hubby

Side note: we are miraculously not in deep for Labor Day and have absolutely NO PLANS. What are yours?!
