a silly, yet important lesson and Outdoor Wednesday

Brian hasn’t really kept Kate all day from morning to evening without me. But this past weekend, he had her Friday night to Saturday afternoon. He and Kate had fun. I could tell from the shape of the house. But, Brian also learned a very valuable lesson.

I close all doors behind me. There is no telling what Kate will get into, if these doors are open. Well, Brian left a door open. A little bit later, he says Kate swinging my toothbrush holder around at Molly in the living room. Some sort of liquid dripping everywhere from her hands. He followed the liquid trail down the hall to the bathroom. He was greeted with a bit of a mess. You see, Brian had left the toilet seat up and the bathroom door open. Both huge invitations to Kate. So, you see, it is a silly yet important lesson.

I realized I don’t really tell anything about Brian, so I thought I would share a couple of things. He is really funny. He makes me laugh all the time. He calls us the “butter family”. Because of a commercial with this black and white family eating huge sticks of butter. We have butter with everything. (I know it is bad for you, but so yummy. We only had margarine growing up. Mama said she couldn’t afford butter.) He reloads his own ammo. I think this is a neat hobby. He saves the shells when he shoots, then reloads them. He listens to talk radio all day long. He loves the show The Office. He is also going back to Germany next month.

In celebration of Outdoor Wednesday and Brian, here are some pictures of Brian in his favorite place: outside.

Here he is with the fish he caught, the first time he took me fishing.

Here I am with the fish I caught that day. :)

He isn’t outside, but I love this picture. He is showing Kate, Molly. We really kept them separated at first. Now, though, is another story entirely.

He is showing Nathan how to hold and pet a chicken.

I hope you enjoyed learning a little about Brian. We have a lot of fun together.

  1. Thanks so much for visiting my blog all the way over in Africa, Christy – nice to ‘meet’ you ! P.S. I know all about closing doors, cupboards etc behind me with a young child in the house, so can relate to the post you wrote above 😉
