Bob the builder

Tonight while I was making supper.

alden: "mom, how do you spell Bob, as in Bob the Builder?"
mom: "B-O-B."
alden: "but what comes first?"
mom: "B - then O then B."
alden:" mom, how old is Bob?"
mom: "i don't know - how old do you think he is?"
alden "the same age as my dad - 9"


There used to be a time when Bob the Builder was a big deal around our house.
Before the Thomas phase.
When our lovely neighbor Kathleen gave us lots of Bob movies and toys.
Well Bob is back.
But with Lucy.
She walks around with our Bob books.
Saying "Bob"
"It's Bob."
And if Alden trys to look at the Bob books... LOOK OUT.
Serious fit from Lucy.
And since Bob is always talked about by Lucy, Alden is giving him a little more attention lately too.
Wasn't expecting a Bob phase with a little girl.
But here we are. :)

I love hearing about these moments with your children. I love that you are recording them so you can share these memories with them when they have their own kids!

It's okay. It is because she has a big bro around!! Isabella is seriously into pirates and playing with action figures. Such is life. But when Ethan is in school, she plays house with her dolls. It's all good!!

Never a dull moment at your house eh. How did your sharing time lesson end up, I'm sure it was great.
