the easy bee

September 12, 2012

Elanor will be 3 years next week
she has taken to calling herself “the honey bee”
we sometimes call her by her initials = EZB
so, a natural nickname transition
as she loves honey so very much
(going to great lengths to find and apply it)
if it doesnt have honey on it
she questions whether or not it is food.
though,
she says she loves me more.
i learned this when Hannah asked me
2 nights ago in the dark at bedtime
dad, do you love us more than beer?
hhmmmm i replied tipsily
EZB exclaims: I love you more than honey!

to be loved by your children is very good
better than beer in fact
and sticky sweet.

    Shawn,

    You drink enough beer to make your kids ask who/which you love more. At one point, I was selling so much crap on craigslist, when Sienna was about EZB’s age, that she asked me if I was going to sell her.

    No chance in hell.

    its not that i drink a lot of beer
    but that it is a treat i deeply enjoy
    and they know that.
    Hannah has also said that if i were a princess
    my name would be “Beerarella”
