Sean: Mommy, can you buy me Lucky Charms? They’re on my diet!
(Note: Their father discusses what’s on his diet.)
Sean: Mommy! Did you you hear that big noise? Do you know what that was? That was me cleaning up my toys!
(Note: Without being asked!)
Sean: Mommy! I have a big hug here! Do you want it?!
Me: Of course.
(He had his arms clasped behind his back and threw his arms around me to give me a bear hug.)
Me: You’re one of my favorite boys.
Evan: I am?!
Me: Yup! Do you know how many I have?
Me: Yup! I’m pretty lucky!
Evan: What aren’t Uncle Face and Uncle Friendly Giant your favorite boys too?
(I’m just glad he didn’t ask about his father.)
Evan: Can you buy me a night cap?
Me: I don’t think they make them anymore.
Evan: Ok. I’ll just wear my pajama pants on my head.
(Your guess is as good as mine.
(Ok, so it’s not clever. But when he runs at me with his arms wide out and yelling that, it’s damn cute.)
(This post was written three times on three different topics/stories. I blame the kid laying down, whining that he didn’t want me to read to him.)
