We've been home this week sick. No, I'm not going to complain about it this time. But, it has provided us with some extra family time. We haven't done much else this week other than stay at home and keep our germs to ourselves.

Since we have had all this time together, I have seen a remarkable advance in the girls' vocabulary. Two year olds are interesting creatures. They use such simple sentences 98% of the time. "I want oatmeal, please." and "No, sissy, that mine!" are the two most popular at our house right now.

But then there is that other 2% of the time when they bust out with something more than the one syllable word and you just get to chuckle. Yesterday at lunch, Mary TuTu was eating for the first time in about 24 hours so we were letting her have anything she wanted and could keep down. She had finished the lunch I fixed for her and she was still hungry, so we were giving her suggestions about what she could have next.

"Do you want more oranges?. . .turkey?. . .crackers?. . .jello?. . ."

Mary TuTu interrupts us by saying, "No, Mommy, actually I want some green beans."
