Questions with Obvious Answers
Sadie asks questions without really thinking, sometimes. Dylan was at school one afternoon, and I took Sadie and Micah to the store.
The whole time we were at the store, Sadie kept asking where Dylan was: "Wheh Di-din?"
I kept saying, "He's at school, Sadie."
"Oh. He at stooh?"
"Yep, he's at school."
"Um, right here, in the cart, Sadie."
"Ohhhh. He in duh tot?"
"Yep, he's in the cart."
When we pulled into our driveway, Sadie says, "Wheh Di-din?"
"Dylan is at school, Sadie."
"Ohhhh. He at stooh?"
"Yep. He's at school."
"He's at work."
"Ohhhh. He's at wutt?"
"Yep, he's at work."
We walk in the door. Sadie: "DI-DIN!! Wheh ah you??"
"Sadie, Dylan is at school."
"Ohhhh. Di-din at stooh?"
"Yes, Sadie. Dylan is at school."
"Oh. Wheh Daddy?"
"Daddy is at work, Sadie. At WORK."
"Ohhh. Daddy's at woot?"
"HE'S RIGHT HERE, SADIE."
"Ohhh. Hi, Mitah!"
And so on and so forth. She cracks me up. But I keep talking with her, because I figure that, the more she talks, the better she will talk. Eventually. Hopefully.
An update on Ben's job situation - his company had a meeting today, and his boss said that laying them off was not an option. He is going to fight hard to keep them employed. He applied for a line of credit, so that Ben and the other guys can continue to get paid for the next few months. The owner of that hotel is going to try to get funding to finish the hotel, therefore to finish paying the architects for their work. He can't sue the bad attorneys for now, because they're threatening bankruptcy, and if they file for bankruptcy, the owner will be screwed. As soon as the owner finishes this hotel, with different funding, he will be free to sue the pants off the bad attorneys. So we'll see what happens. I'll update you as soon as I know anything else.
