Covering a Book the Old Fashioned Way
Adam came to me today with a cool request. "Mom, can you help me cover my book?" Of course I could help him cover a book! I thought this was something that they no longer had the kids do since this is the first time any of my kids have had to do this, so I was happy to squeeze in five minutes of time with Adam showing him just how cool I can be.
Alex and Dennis watched Alex's adoption video at least twenty times today! And each and every time they squealed with delight at every new picture and laughed when Alex was eating the banana and hitting the ball with Julia. Alex even seemed to be a little embarrassed of his singing at the end but when I told him how much I love his singing he seemed to be less shy.
When I called to check and see when our couches would be delivered, the manager tried to tell me that his assistant manager sold the couches to me for less money than he was supposed to and tried to get me to pay another couple hundred dollars. I couldn't believe he would actually ask that when it was his employee who offered to sell me the couches at that price and I had already paid in full for them. I told him absolutely not and that if he didn't deliver the couches I just wanted a full refund. After some number crunching on his part, he informed me that he would be delivering the couches tomorrow minus the oversized chair that is on back-order. So the kids and I cleared out the living room and moved the other couches into the game room. Secretly, I am thrilled to know that I got such an awesome deal. And now we will be able to sit our whole family down for a movie night.
William and Alex are starting to spend more time together. It is nice to see.
Caleb has also taken a liking to Alex. He loves that he can make Alex laugh anytime he wants.
