Nuggets and Stuff

Not chicken nuggets....just nuggets.

Ian is always coming up with stuff that I don't want to forget, so I put it on the blog.

Tonight at the dinner table he said "it's starting to get dark. Hey Mommy....where Jesus is, does he have a light switch to turn off to make it dark?"

Last night we were in the living room watching Yo Gabba Gabba...a favorite for both boys. One of the scenes talked about happy thoughts and things that make you happy. I asked Ian what made him happy? He said "ummmm, Christmas makes me happy. Sitting on Daddy's lap makes me happy, hugging my baby brother makes me happy and loving on my Daddy makes me happy." So sweet...but where' mommy?

Drew started a Mother's Day Out program at Southpark Christian School this week. I'm so excited. He will go 3 days a week. That'll give Charlie a chance to sleep since he works until 4am . The first day, Drew cried when Charlie left him...but today...he RAN to his classroom. He's doing really well. When I asked him this morning if he was ready to go to school he shook his little head and said "aaaayyyyaaaahhhh" (that yes in Drew speak). The he hopped off my lap and said "mon...go cool" (come on....go school). So cute.

Ian starts in the K4 class at Southpark next Wednesday. Can't believe it. He's really looking forward to it. He has his new Bumblebee backpack and he's ready to go. He doesn't watch Transformers yet...but he loves the toys.

Tonight when I got home from work, Drew was screaming. I mean SCREAMING. He was so mad. He wanted a "nana" (banana). Longish story shortish....he first banana was eaten by the dog...that made him mad, then Charlie told him he needed to wait until after dinner and that made it worse. He threw a screaming FIT....unlike anything I've seen him do before, for about 20 minutes. T-E-M-P-E-R. Finally it was time for dinner and that settled him down. After was a great evening, but boy was he mad.

All of my boys are sleeping and I love these moments. I just feel so happy and secure knowing that Charlie, Ian and Drew are sleeping in their beds. I'm a lucky momma.

I have always loved Ian's (and now Drews) nuggets! thanks for sharing the latest. They sound so cute.

Funny...we had a screaming fit over a banana yesterday too!

It is great that they are learning to enjoy their "school" and like to go there too.

Ian's comment about Jesus and the light switch definitely made me laugh. Your boys are so adorable and I always enjoy reading about the cute things they say and do.
