boys – they are so fun(ny)!

Hope this brings a smile to your face today!

Everyday Samuel is becoming more and more like a little boy. In one week he will be 2 years old. Wow.

Yesterday, like a true man, he decided he was hungry and began to fix himself something. He pushed a chair over to the stove, pulled over the frying pan, got a butter knife, scooped out some butter, plopped it in the pan and began talking to Dave. Dave asked, “are you hungry Samuel?” Some jibberish then a “Yes!”

Today as we were reading “The Little Engine That Could” he turned back to another page and he was pointing and talking about something then said, “Ho Cow!” (Holy Cow) Anthony has been saying that a lot lately, so naturally Samuel picked up on it. Samuel also picked up on “Gosh” tonight (fortunately not the other) as we were watching “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”. Children are so easily impressionable!

And the funniest thing of all happened tonight as I was getting him ready for bed. We were reading and he began picking at his nose. I pulled his hand away, “don’t pick your nose”. He smiled and then shoved his finger up his nose. I took it away again. Giggling, he put his other finger up his other nostril. I couldn’t help but giggle too. I pulled it out. He put his other finger up his nose. I pulled it out. Over and over. We were laughing so much we couldn’t even finish the story!

These boys are so fun!

Last week James’ primary teacher told him to get a chair for the only girl in his class. He asked “why?”
“So you can practice for when you have a sister someday.”
James instantly said, “Nope, we’re going to be a family of all boys!”

That’s true! (Aside from me), we are going to be a family of all boys! (That’s another story for another time.)
But even so, we are working on respect and courtesy.
