Tornado S: Mommy, can you buy me Lucky Charms? They’re on my diet!
(Note: Their father discusses what’s on his diet.)
Tornado S: 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!)
Tornado S: 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.
Tornado E: I am?!
Me: Yup! Do you know how many I have?
Tornado E: THREE!
Me: Yup! I’m pretty lucky!
Tornado E: Why aren’t Uncle Face and Uncle Friendly Giant your favorite boys too?
(I’m just glad he didn’t ask about his father.)
Tornado E: Can you buy me a night cap?
Me: I don’t think they make them anymore.
Tornado E: Ok. I’ll just wear my pajama pants on my head.
(Your guess is as good as mine.)
Tornado A: MOMMYYYYYYYY!
(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.)
