- The way Johnny talks cracks me up. He is just funny. He picks up on social cues really quickly and his vocabulary and the way he talks just isn't what I expect from a five year old, so it cracks me up. He kind of reminds me of the kids on the movie, Sandlot. He has impeccable timing. He also has a wild imagination. He can transform reality very quickly to meet his needs. Sometimes he takes his imagination to seriously:
- Me: Johnny get your coat on, it's raining. Johnny: Mom, sharkboy loves the cold. Besides, the water is good for me, unless I get angry- then, BAM- I'll rip everything up with me teeth. Wearing a coat gets me angry- you can put two and two together. (He walks away smugly.)
- I love our conversation topics. Johnny: Man, mom. I can't wait until I'm sixty, it's going to be awesome. Me: But when your sixty you might not run so fast. Johnny: (without missing a beat:) That's fine. I'll just fly.
The other day, all of us sat on the porch to wave "Good bye" to Dad.
We went to the park after scouts. John was at work studying for his test.
She is such a cute sister!
Hard to see, but William and Johnny felt SO cool because they were sitting on the outside of the bridge bars. I know, that is probably dangerous- but that ain't no thang compared to some of the things I've witnessed them do on our Family outings. So, it's all relative.
We got frisbees and William and I played with his for about thirty minutes. It was so fun and we laughed over and over again.
Sidewalk chalk is an activity I love.
