I’ve been taking a break from blogging for various reasons but I’m back for this drive-by post just so I can preserve precious moments.
I mean to write them all down in my journal but it seems like I am more willing to type it out if in blog form.
Both my boys crack me up daily.
Here are a couple notable quotables from the mouth of my nearly three-and-a-half year old Ellis:
Before hitting up the playground after school, the boys scootered as I chased after them to the Japanese market in our ‘hood so that we can pick up a few onigiri (rice balls in the shape of triangles, covered with dried seaweed).
When I noticed that only the spicy ones were still available that late afternoon, I announced to the boys that the non-spicy onigiri were all gone.
E’s round eyes got even bigger as his tulip mouth pursed seriously, and he exclaimed, “Call the police!”
Ellis started a bad habit only this week, of trying to stay up past their bedtime. We did not want to give in so we started resorting to dirty tactics when we saw him trying to sneak out of their shared room right before our eyes.
“Hey, Daddy! Let’s get ready to watch monsters on the TV. In the DARK like a movie theater!” (me trying to prey on his current fears)
Ellis: I know you guys are trying to trick me. That is NOT nice.
On the way home from church, I was explaining to Micah:
“Being smart is so relative. Some people are blessed to be smart in one way, while other people are smart in another way. You should never feel bad because someone else, like a classmate, seems smarter than you, because you probably smarter than them in another way.
Also, you should never show off about your smarts, either, because in life, you will always meet people who are smarter than you.”
Ellis, from the carseat next to Big Brother’s: “Like me.”
And that’s all for today. I hope to stay awake for Grey’s Anatomy and ease on into weekend mode early on this Thursday night.
Ellis is so funny! And smart! He got some funny flavor! It’s hard for me to imagine Mr. Doe Eyes saying all those quips! He’s still a baby in my mind
