While we were playing dinosaurs and I was the damsel in distress:
Me: "Oh, you are such a scary dinosaur!"
Ford: "No, Mommy, I'm not a scary dinosaur; I'm just a handsome boy!"
While driving by the new CVS:
"Look, Mommy, there's QVC!"
While eating lunch the other day:
Ford: "Mommy, I'm so sad."
Me: "What's the matter, punks?"
Ford: "I didn't get to sing Happy Birthday to Emma."
He then proceeds to lay his head down on the table for a few seconds while I try to call Jennie so he can sing to Emma (whose birthday was 2 weeks ago). She could not be reached. He picks his little head up and says, "I think a popsicle would make me feel happy!"
The boy knows how to work it.
And I love it.
A few Mom Tips for you:
Tip: Have all supplies ready before bath begins.
No matter how fast you can get pajamas out of a drawer from a room that is attached to the bathroom, your 1-year-old will be faster and will make it from the hallway, where he just got lotioned, diapered, and pajamed, to the tub and will end up face first back in the tub with his brother who will give you no warning that this is occuring.
Tip: Don't put your baby's crib next to a light switch.
For some reason, they don't sleep when the light is on. Who would have thought? The crib was just moved the crib by the light switch because said baby pulled the curtain holder out of the wall in the crib's first position. Crib will now reside in the middle of the room. I'm thinking that's not going to stop this guy from wreaking havoc on something else; I've just got to stay one step ahead of him...
