Talking with Nate #8


So the posts have been a little few and far between. This is because we have the internet speed of 1997 at our house here in South Africa and I give up when the page takes a month to load.  It's not frustrating at all.  Netflix is only a distant memory. Anyways, moving on...

While at the Pretoria Zoo...
Nate: This elephant has a tushy.  And a penis!

While searching behind the couch cushions...
Nate: Maybe you can find some chickens in here?

While wearing his Thomas the Train t-shirt...
Nate: Ben, do you love my shirt?

At breakfast...
Nate: This is my best friend named Mommy.

After dropping his trains on the floor by accident...
Nate: Oh my goodness.  Look what I did.

While protesting taking a bath...
Nate: I can't come to the bath because I too happy.

And while protesting going to preschool and wanting to stay home...
Nate: I too happy here! I can't go to school because I too happy! Not too sad!

Ben is 1!


Last Monday, Ben turned 1.  I know every parent says this but seriously! Where did this past year go?

This little dude had a great day.  We went to the zoo and Henry brought home boxes and boxes of gifts for Ben from the embassy mailroom from family and friends.  So many that the mailroom workers had to help bring all the boxes to the car.  And made fun of us.  Happy Birthday, Ben!
