    New Year 2014 in Georgia

    ~ by Charlotte http://lifesacharm.net/life/new-year-2014-in-georgia/

    New Year’s Eve, we are watching this pile of log burn … in Georgia.

    New Year's Ever in Georg

    New Year’s Ever in Georg


    We spent New Year’s Holiday and Grandma’s birthday in Georgia. It was so cold and rainy… Brrrr

    10 minutes on the road back to Florida, we still have hours and hours to go…

    Mark, 3-years old: “Are we in Florida?”
    Grandma: “Not yet.”
    Mark: “Are we in China?”
    Grandma, puzzled pause: “No.”
    Mark: “Are we still in Georgia?”
    Grandma: “Yes.”
    Mark, disappointed: “Awww.”

    Road trip is not his favorite thing.

    Matthew’s Dating Plan

    ~ by Charlotte http://lifesacharm.net/life/dating-plan/

    Last year, on Grandma’s birthday, Grandpa’s birthday gift for her was in a small box. We were all around her when she opened the small box, and it was a ring with a shiny gemstone. As soon as Matthew saw the ring, he said, “Ah, he went to Jared.” We all chuckled at this remark.

    A year passed…

    Last night at bed time, Matthew, 7-years old, came up to me,…

    Matthew: “When I grow up and go to college, I’ll go to Jared and buy a ring, date a girl 5 times, and put the ring on the box and give it to her.

    Me, after thinking hard: “First, you have to finish college, right? And then find a good job. And then find a nice girl.

    Matthew: “Ok.”

    He left, seemed satisfied and went to bed.

    I was amused, but I wondered if he truly understands what he said. Probably not.

    FYI, Jared is a jewelry store in the U.S. They have recurring commercials on TV with the tag line “He went to Jared.”

    Obviously, their commercial has worked for Matthew. But, they should be paying us for the mere mention of their store in my timeline. HA!

    Mark at 3-years Old

    ~ by Charlotte http://lifesacharm.net/life/mark-at-3-years-old/

    While Uncle Tom was giving Matthew (7) a haircut, Mark was observing…

    Me, to Mark (3): “Do you want a haircut too?
    Mark: “No.
    Me: “Why not?
    Mark: “Because my hair is black, just like Daddy’s coffee.
    Me: (speechless)

    Only he can make that connection!

    So Matthew have a playmate in the neighborhood, Shane. He is also from Matthew’s class in school. He comes over all the time to play with – mostly Matthew. But of course, Mark always wants to join in the fun, even if he couldn’t keep up with the 7-year olds …

    So while Matthew and Shane were playing ‘tag’, running around the yard, completely ignoring Mark…

    Mark, chasing Matthew around, “I want to play too, but I am not good with this game.”

    Mark continues to chase Matthew, this time with pointer finger trying to tag Matthew, “TAG! AWEEE, MY FINGER HURT…”

    Mark, while completely being ignored, continues to chase Matthew and Shane, and complaining about his finger. As I am amused by this, I called Mark to check his finger, which was fine, as I suspected. I told him to play with me instead. But he refused. And then he ran off, chased them again and completely ignoring me.

    Lately, with my request, Matthew and Shane are better at including Mark when they play.

    When he saw me with a camera in my hand, he stood still and asked me to take a picture of him. This was the outcome.

    He is growing up so fast!
