Portraits of Mommy

Today my almost-four-year-old son excitedly called me over to "see the picture I drew of you!!" Granted I have been dealing with kids that are sick and whiney all day - but will somebody please let me know if it's really this bad??!!

This isn't my son's first artistic rendering of me, just the most "eye-catching."

If I was pretend...

Talking about a character from his favorite show Little Einsteins, our almost-four-year-old said, "if I was pretend, I would give Annie a hug."

It struck me as funny that his thought process wasn't "if Annie was real..."

Noculars and Re-noculars

This morning our almost-four-year-old was playing with his binoculars, which he calls "noculars." I explained that if there was only one lens it would be called a "monocular." He then filled me in on this little ditty of information: "And when I turn them around backwards they're called re-noculars."

Cold Play

Okay it's not snowing outside, but this is Los Angeles for crying out loud! Anything below 50 degrees is freezing to me. Apparently my "cold" gene isn't hereditary.

This is our almost four-year-old marching around showing off his "elephant ears". It's even funnier when his little brother marches around behind him doing the same thing - but I have yet to catch their little circus duet on camera.

"Mommy, is your head gonna pop?"

A couple weeks ago on my way to a sinus infection, I commented to my husband that I was so stuffed-up that I felt like my head was going to pop. Later that day while I was driving, my oldest son somewhat cautiously asked, "Mommy, is your head really gonna pop?" When I finally stopped laughing, I was able to reassure him that it only FELT like my head was going to pop.

"I'm the Maker"

With Brawny Baby's fleece taggie blankets clinging to his shirt, our oldest son announced, "I'm the Maker!" Slightly perplexed I asked, "What?!" And he again replied, "I'm the Maker!" It finally dawned on me that he meant "Baker" - and the fleece blankets were his apron.

He may not be the Maker, but he gets points for creativity!

If I only had a hammer...

He looks so almost don't notice the hammers are facing the wrong direction. Then again, maybe he was trying to figure out how a dentist might use a hammer.
