My son failed!

Hans failed Sermon Analogies 101, apparently. Sheesh. We need to train that kid!

I *finally* got his new carseat installed. Carrying around a 9 month boy in an infant carrier seat was getting heavy. On the bright side, I think I have more arm muscles than I used to have :-). But I digress. . .

Anyway, the carseat came in a gigantic box (it was already assembled so required mucho cardboardo), and I emptied it and put it on its side in the living room, thinking that Hans would think it fun to climb into. I mean, *every* pastor I've ever sat under has used the children-enjoy-the-box-more-than-the-gift analogy at *least* 5 times per year. He ignored the box. All morning. All afternoon. Finally come evening he decided to use it to hoist himself up into a standing position and then just whacked it with his hands a few times. That was it. *sigh* My son, the theological dunce.

He'll learn to appreciate it. I'll teach him. Don't get rid of it!

You're barely in time. Adrian was going to put it in the dumpster today, but instead we'll put it down in the basement, just for you. What are you going to do, climb in it and bark like a dog? hehe.

Please take a video of Hannah barking like a dog in an empty box. :-)

Aw, you were really going to get rid of it? Well, don't keep it on my account if you don't want it to take up space. But that just seems so sad. I want to crawl in there and bark like a dog. And send the video to Ashley. :)

Susan said...

It's not going to be in the way in the basement, so we'll keep it. We'll have to send you a video, Ashley :-).

I hope the lack of posting is because you are really tired and Hans will be a big brother.

Hope you guys had a good Easter.

Susan said...

Yeah, it has been a long while since I posted. . . nope, not because I'm pregnant, Caroline ;-). I've just been keeping quite busy. I do hope to get back to blogging soon, but for now, other things have to take a priority :-).

Hello Susan,

I've just been praying for work for Adrian . . . hope things are looking positive.

love Sherrin

Caroline said...

Oh, I just read the last comment. I hope you guys are doing OK. I check at least once a day hoping to see an update on your cute little family.

Susan said...

Yes, we're doing fine. Adrian got another job very quickly, in our same area :-). I'm just not finding time to blog. I'm busy crafting interesting foods that fit my new diet (while I work through some digestive issues) and sewing and chasing a very active 11 month old!

Unfortunatly I lost your e-mail when my computer died (again). When did Adrian lose his job?
