Ain't Disbehavin'

That's an H on that green sticky note. After I made H's birthday cake and he and C frosted it and the cake cover went on, he brought the sticky note over and put it on top. (If you can't tell it has an H written on it). You know, in case we were confused about whose birthday cake it really was, or Mommy or Daddy got any ideas about a sweet snack during the night ;) He gets it honest, I am very -um- particular about my stuff. In my defense, I had some bad lending experiences in the past (way past, like third grade) that really made me guard my possessions.

I try to type into my iPhone all the funny comments H makes, so I thought I'd share a couple:

One evening before we left to go out to dinner, he was not behaving well at. all. When I asked something like "what is wrong, why are you so upset, are you going to act like this at the restaurant?" he replied, "That's why I'm acting like this because I wanted to disbehave in the restaurant." The ironic thing is, I really think he meant he wanted to BEhave at the restaurant. Ahh, sometimes it's hard to keep a straight face as the parent.

In early December '09, we were reading our nightly Bible story. After reading Jonah and the Whale, he asked how the whale knew to spit Jonah out. I said, "God told him to." H's reply: "I didn't know whales spoke God."

He's just too smart (in more ways than one). A cutie too! I do love that kid!

Side note: Fourteen (14) One Four. That is the number of gray hairs C pulled out of my head last night. He'd fallen down on the job since the whole hospital/ER fiasco that was our Christmas and New Year. Yes, I do have him pluck them out (I laugh in the face of that old wives tale about 'for every one you pull two take its place'). Let's hope that this surge in graying was a result of all the trauma from said fiasco and not a recurring event. I hope to have some pictures of some sewing and knitting and even crocheting up soon. Must get my IT guy on those pictures ASAP.

That's so smart that you try and write down the funny comments your sons make. I need to do that. It just goes by so fast.

Funny thing, Chris and I didn't know whales spoke God either. We laughed so hard that A started laughing too. Hard. Like, she was kicking her feet and snorting!! Tell H thanks for the laugh! She hasn't done that before...react to an action not directed specifically at her. Very cute!

That is a very smart thing to do. I'll have to remember it when A begins talking!

Who can really blame H for wanting to keep tabs on his own birthday cake!? I mean, you only get a 5 year old birthday cake once!! :) I hope things went well today. We got about 2 inches of snow all told I guess. The roads are terrible though so we're just lounging about. A helped me clean up some of my fabric stash! Whoa. I didn't realize the severity. Probably best we don't get snowed in very often. :)
