a few days ago, we went family grocery shopping. so great. chris got home a bit early from work, our pantry was bare, it was the perfect scenario. on our way to albertsons, (i am playing the monopoly game. what a sneaky way to get people to shop at your store. laugh now, but if i win a new car, or a $5 giftcard to albertsons, we will see who gets the last laugh...) lily told us to look at her and topher who were holding hands. so cute. which i expressed: "you guys are so cute!" to which lily replied: "take a picture!" so i obediently grabbed my camera phone, and while i was doing that topher chimed in with a perfectly timed: "cheese!" this made going 'shopping' worthwhile for chris.
i am always telling lily: "please be careful." because she is crazy. and not very careful. so when she is doing something 'dangerous', she says to me: "mom, i have to please be careful." it's pretty funny.
here's a picture of topher and his daddy. i do not exist when this man is around. i often remind my son that he would not exist if i weren't around!
