my wonderful wonderful boys

I am kidding you not - I have the smartest son in the world.

Ok, ok...back off other mommies with the same claim. But I'm not lying. The kid is smart!

When I tickle him with "tickle bugs," I make a pinch-like motion and say "Moose, what are these?" And then I say "tickle bugs!" in a higher-pitched voice. Well, now when I ask him, he'll start "tickling" himself and saying jibberish in a high-pitched voice/yell. It's SO CUTE! If my camera had sound, I'd put that on here.

I started this when he was REAL young. When I change his diaper, I always sing the Jaws "da da, da da, da da, da" (you know what I'm talking about). As I'm doing this, I'm opening his diaper and when I get it open, I go "DADA" real loud (same high-pitched voice as tickle bugs). Now I can start doing the first part, and Moose will just say something like "AHHH" in the high-pitched voice.

We're working on blowing kisses. I'll blow him a kiss and then he'll "kiss" the back of his hand. It's so sweet! He blew Big A a kiss yesterday.

AND my hubby is now the 3-time AppleJack Strongman winner!!

Anyway, sorry this is short & kind of rushed. It's time for our nightly rummy game (AND I'm kicking butt in our never-ending game).

You are such a great mom.

u have a nightly rummy game? sad ... i miss you. if/when you guys get this job and move out here (optimism, my love!) the four of us can have a nightly pitch game or something! ha!!!

i love you

and YES you do have a very smart son! He gets it from his Godmother....yes i know you and anthony are both intelligent enough, but new research indicates that all intelligence factors are inherited through osmosis by the godmother. :) just though you should know! hehehe


HA!

PS in your picture, it looks like you have twins!

Hi Mrs. S! I've had fun poking around your blog for a little while. You're a busy mom--glad your new job is working out and you can spend your days WITH Moose! God is a great provider.

You stopped by for my SITS day at The Journey a while back, and I'm still wandering about returning all the visits. All of the amazing blogs have been too interesting to hurry through, but I did want to say thanks!

Aww, how cute! they're so fun at that age. I could go on and on and on about all the cute things my niece does. She's a born comdeian, I tell ya!

Enjoy your little guy while you can, tomorrow he'll be in high school! At least that's how it will seem.

Oh! Congrats to your hubby!
