Well, I heard some pretty silly statements after returning home from celebrating Thanksgiving with my brother and his family. Drew said, “I wish we lived in their house.” My husband asked him why. Drew replied, “Because they have food in their house. They have a nice sink. They have dolls to play with.” Okay, so I think the only thing we don’t have in this list are dolls. I think my son enjoyed playing with his girl cousin and her dolls. Preparing him for fatherhood…?
I was reading some neat books about Christmas the other day, and Will said, “I love Christmas!” I told him that I do too. We then started to name the things we love about Christmas. Will’s final response was, “Most important thing about Christmas is God.” I gave him a high-five and told him that he was very right.
Will recently said, “Daddy, I am worried about college. I don’t want to have to stay there all the time and to sleep there.” Jonathan and I both reassured him that he didn’t need to worry about it for a long time and that when he is old enough to attend college, he’ll probably want to have his own place. If not, we told him he could always commute from home to college.
Recently, L said to Jonathan, “Ladies do this.” He then demonstrated by crossing his legs at the ankles. Last night as I was preparing him for bed, he said, “Cowboys do this.” He then demonstrated their wide-legged walk.
