A couple little stories for you...
We are working on math and one of the rhymes we are learning is "One, two, buckle my shoe..". You know how it goes. We get to "9, 10, a big fat hen" and Liam runs up to me and gives me the biggest hug EVER and says "Mom, you are my big fat hen!!" and gives me a kiss.
This afternoon I am heading off to take a shower leaving Liam in charge of keeping an eye on his sister.
Me: "Now Liam, you know not to answer the door or pick up the phone."
Liam: "Okay, Mom."
Me: "No jumping on the bed, either, because you might fall off..."
Liam: "Okay. I know."
Me: "And don't.."
Liam: "Mom, don't worry. We will do all of the things you told us not to do."
Then he stops, thinks, and says "Wait, that's not what I wanted to say."
Look at him...
he is being cute, right?
