The above "grimace" is apparently in response to my command to "smile." And, yes, he is carrying around a pink Hello Kitty purse with a green Gideon's New Testament tucked inside. That's definitely a better smile face, Zach. I am so jealous of Allie's doughnut jammies. I wish I had a pair. Because, whenever I am down, sprinkled doughnuts definitely make me smile.
Hmmm...upon closer examination of the above picture, I'm thinking Zach's cold may have morphed into an ear infection. Doesn't it look like he's tugging at his ear? We may have a doctor's appointment in our very near future.
Anyway, other than that one episode where they were both being so rowdy that they knocked over a lamp, picture frame, and candle off of our end table this morning, it has been a fun day (plus, the fact that I didn't even have to utter a word after the incident before they voluntarily placed themselves in time out tells me that I must be improving my "look").
Allie has definitely been Zach's little mom today....she read him books for over a half hour after she helped him cover up with a blanket on the couch, she helped him build his lego Cars town, and even invited him into her room to play dress up and princesses with her. She told me before naps that Zach is her best friend which I'm sure she'll need to be reminded of when she's 17 and he's 15.
