I'm convinced she'll be a teacher one day. If she's not teaching our cat to write, she's teaching me or her dolls some speech/listening therapy. As overstream is still down, I'll sum up what happens here since I can't caption. Brook tells me to put a certain picture card into the orange cup but I, on purpose, pick up the wrong card just to keep her on her toes. She screams "NOOO!" but smiles when she realizes she yelled at me.

I never know what the day will bring with these two. One minute they're like this, the next they are DRAGGING the other one by the hand/leg/hair, who knows! Inspired by Jodi's post today, I decided to share one story that occurred this morning. When Gage woke up I told him that one of Brook's coil cords was frayed and I had to order a new one. He got that little demon twinkle in his eye and when she woke up he ran to inform her that "haha, you can only wear one processor today!" Luckily I have back ups and she did no such thing, she wore two just like always. He has always felt like HE should hear better, HE deserves the better MAPS, and is not at all shy to tell the audiologist this either. Soon after Brook got her first implant he informed the audiologist that she needed to be sure HE could hear the best!! Oh those young love/hate relations of the brothers and sisters. I do have to remind myself sometimes of how sweet and loving they CAN be sometimes...those "I Love You" signs they throw into the air each night to each other before bed helps me remember that there is LOVE in there somewhere!

You know how WalMart has two entries? One is for the grocery side and the other for the other merchandise. Gage and I were making a quick stop for bread, cat food and a toy. We parked in the middle and as we approached the front of the building, I said, "hmm which side do we want to enter...? Let's go to the food first" and Gage, Mr Observant says, "well, the other side has the low prices!" I looked up and sure enough one said food or groceries? and the other said low prices...smart kid.(grin)

Well, Brook has an obsession w/my mother aka Nanny. Today while "watching a movie" she decides her hair needed a trim. Know what she told me "I was tryin' to have short hair like my Nanny"....You can barely even tell she cut it though. One more inch over and she would have clipped her coil cable! ouch that would've been a pricey haircut.
