Little Girl : I have like $100.00 in my savings account
Syd : I don't know how much I have. like $10,000.00
Little Girl : I'm saving my money to buy an I-touch or an I-pad
Syd : Those are like $500.00
Little Girl : I think they are more like $5,000.00
Syd : My mom...not that one...my other mom....is going to BUY me an I-pad when I get into Stanford.
Little Girl : I'm going to BYU. Where are you going...BYU or the U of U ?
Syd : I'm going to Stanford
Mommy J has also promised to do a flip on the trampoline when she's accepted as well.
Now we've just got to start saving for that I-pad. I had no idea they were $5,000.00 ! Holy shit !
Cameron said to me, "Mom, when I grow up and become a scientist......"
I don't remember a damn thing he said after that....I was just so thrilled to hear something besides..."when I grow up and become a race car driver - a super hero - a garbage man"
I'm actually good with any of those options really. but scientist was a nice change.
Cameron is my question asker. If he blows his nose....he wants to know what boogers are and where they come from. If he bleeds he wants to know where blood comes from, what's in it.
What's in water mom ? Why do we have belly buttons ? How do fish breathe water ? How hot is the sun ?
Oh...and I have to ask you. What the freak did mothers do when Google wasn't around ? Holy shit fire.
Nathan has decided that all things girl (gurl like curl only girl) are bad. He doesn't want to be associated with it, like it, threatened with liking it, or more importantly called it.
He refused to put super hero underwear on the other day because there was a gurl on them. It was actually green lantern (?) but wtf....really ?
If a commercial comes on TV and it's showing barbies or pink dress up stuff....whatever...he'll say in a teasing way, "That's for gurls. That's gurl stuff" even when I think....buddy you would probably like that doll that swims in the tub. and I know that Ryan is sitting next to him secretly longing for one and is pissed that Nate had to go all out loud saying shit about the doll he already named "dolly" that could swim with him and take baths with him and that he could push around in his little shopping cart...but now can't because he's not a gurl either. sheesh.
Recently a little neighbor boy (he's 2) sent Nate home in tears. I asked him what happened and he said, "He called me a gurl" now thems is fightin words.
:) ha ha ha
It cracks me up.
Spencer draws me pictures. He draws a blue sky, a sun in one corner, 2 people representing me and him holding hands, grass, a tree, hearts and stars. He signs his name big at the top, including the initial of his last name and he eagerly gives it to me with just as much enthusiasm each and every time like it was the first.
And each time he gives it to me.....it fills my heart with more and more love.
Ryan has his own theme music. He honestly does. It doesn't matter what he's in the middle of playing...whether it be spiderman, bad guys or sheriff woody....as he moves from room to room or just around the room....he's humming/singing his music. It's kind of a mixture of Star Wars and Superman done in the dun dun dun dun style.
He also has his bad guy voice. A bit like Overboard and the pee wee herman voice. I've got to get that on video. So entertaining to listen to him play.
A lot of these quirks will fade from my memory over time. Just keeping record of some of the ones I love the most and can't bear to forget.
|Spencer wanted me to post his picture today. :)|
