I admit that while I’ve been working through the evening, one of my greatest frustrations has been the storm outside–it’s been so dense at times that it’s prevented our dish from getting its signal from the satellite, meaning that I missed almost the entire Project Runway season finale runway show.
I know, I know, the pain I suffer, right?
It would be worse for me if I hadn’t already gotten my fill of entertainment tonight from 3B, who not only painted me beautiful pictures today, but amused us all with stories and songs throughout the night.
And now “all” includes his sister, Jewel. Today, she was listening to and smiling at his antics for the first time. He responded by asking her to tell him a story. He and Mama stared at Jewel for a little while until she randomly cooed or grunted, and then 3B said to his sister, “And then what happened?”
She reciprocated by following him around the room with her eyes and lighting up any time he spoke or played a song. The interactions between them are the cutest communication I’ve ever seen. And so, really, when the satellite signal goes out, I’m not at all upset.
I can still see, in my mind’s eye, my family talking, dancing, singing and laughing together. That’s all the entertainment I need.
But, just in case you need something more, I give you excerpts from this evening’s concert:
