His wonderful primary teachers brought over some Snowman Soup (hot cocoa w/marshmallows) a few weeks ago. I made him a cup and half way through drinking it he looked at me big eyes. "Mommy, did I just drink a snowman?" "Yep," I smiled. Then he smiled. "That is so...awesome!"
This one actually happened towards the end of the summer. Nick and I had just tucked the kids in bed and then a few minutes later we heard Toby crying. Nick ran up to his room and asked what was wrong. Through his sobs he said, "I miss Kaya. I can't wait till I see her again." Ouch. Always my sensitive little soul.
And also a little charmer. Lately, he's been buttering me up with things like "You're gorgeous, mommy. You're just so beautiful." And for some reason he says this when my hair is in a greasy ponytail and I have little or no makeup on. He is precious.
"Ridiculous" has become a new favorite word for him (except sometimes he has a hard time with the "L" in it and it sounds even cuter). "I can't find my Transformer! This is so ree-dicurous!"
I love that little guy. I gotta say, I'm a big fan of this 4-almost-5 age.
