did i tell y'all that i am suffering from strep throat?
and patrick has it, too!!
yep. it's a pitiful place, our house.
we're offering our child endless snacks and movie watching.
he is loving it. and redecorating our home. help.
let's think happy thoughts:
elijah has a bit of an obsession with snow white and her seven dwarf friends.
he's only recently really watched the movie. and once he saw it, he fell in love.
he acts out all parts.
here are some highlights:
snow white, running for her life, falling deep into the forest.
even her crying on the ground.
elijah is a master at whimpering in his real life, so this act is an easy play.
he plays a dwarf, mining away, with an axe
(or a sword, or wii sports bat attachment)
the "axe" is thrown over his back singing away
"hi-ho, hi-ho, it's home from work we go"
as he marches around the room.
(he really has the "hi-ho" part down, the other lyrics, he's just winging it.)
he fake sleeps, after he sweeps the floor.
just like snow white sleeps after cleaning the little house.
elijah's snores are so legit.
switching gears to the evil queen is no big deal for my boy.
he can cackle and mix old hag potion like it's his job.
then he's back to the whimpering/sobbing,
when snow white is duped by that nasty apple.
the prince part, at the end, where he kisses her awake, oscar material.
he rushes over to me to lean in for the life-giving lip lock. what a natural.
elijah hops onto his rocking horse and rides away, waving and saying "bye bye"!
his smile spread wide across his face says he is proud of his performance.
the "hi-ho" song is sung all. day. long. long after the movie has been turned off.
he even studies at bedtime. you just never know when you'll need to
be ready to perform a stellar snow white act.
i've also shared a little post about adoption at take heart.
