"Our Daddy may have only had a third grade education, but he could read the King James Bible, " says Helen Ashe. He taught us three things: 1. There is but one race-- the human race. 2. There is but one Father--the Heavenly Father. 3. Never take the last piece of bread from the table. (Helen Ashe co-founder of the Love Kitchen)"

The Wee Boy and Sweet Pea had their well check up yesterday. Even though Wee Boy is 5 and Sweet Pea is 3 they are very "twinnish" (Just making up words here). I even had a lady ask me yesterday if they were twins.
We were put into the room decorated in all things space. They quickly began claiming and assigning each other planets..(I get the planet with rings and you get the big red planet..Do other children do this or is it just mine?).
I asked them if they would want to be astronauts when they grew up. Simultaneously, they answered Wee Boy-"No!" and Sweet Pea "Yes!". Wee Boy looked at Sweet Pea and said, "No you don't. You. Could. Die!!" Sweet Pea looked at him and shrugged her shoulders as if to say, "And??"
These two are like living with Ernie and Bert. They crack me up.
After the Dr. checked them out, we waited for the nurse to come and give them their vaccines. They each needed one shot.
They were coloring and Sweet Pea said, "I'm scared. I want my Daddy." before I could speak a word of comfort the Wee Boy said, "Daddy is not going to save you. You have to get your shot and you have to be brave." Sweet Pea incensed that he would think that she is not brave said, "I am brave..I was just scared of that noise..I heard something."
The nurse walked in at that moment and asked who should go first. I thought we should capitalize on Sweet Pea's feeling the bravery. She sat on the table and received her shot without a whimper or tear. The nurse and I just looked at each other.
Wee Boy declared he was brave too and did the same. Shot in the arm without a peep.
They were done. The nurse looked at me and laughed. She told me it wasn't usually that easy.
Wee Boy and Sweet Pea. They are so good for each other.
