Funny and not so funny

Today on the way home from shoe shopping B was singing the Tiny turtle song to L.  He sang
"There was a little turtle,
His name was Tiny Tim.
They put him in the bathtub
to see if he could swim.
He drank up all the water,
He ate up all the soap,
This is the funny part,
And now he's in the bed with a bubble in his throa---------t."

They sang it another 3 times an he never added that line "This is the funny part" again.  I love his delight and how he processes everything so clearly in his words, face and actions.

We needed to go get some milk after dinner and couldn't find B.  We were getting worried, then scared.  Finally he popped up from the trunk of the van where he'd been hiding.  I hate it when kids hide.

Primary Program

Today was the primary program and B made a conscious decision to add a fermata to the end of each song.  It was a source of amusement to people watching and no doubt it was delightful to B.  He never did this during the practices so it is interesting to see this in his first performance.  Wow.

B has a spiderman shirt he loves to wear and last night he put on this swim suit then asked me to take his picture.  One of the funny things he does is articulate the rules he is learning.  He'll say things like "It's OK because you didn't see me do it."  We're working to help him become a good person despite being so stinking cute!

B loves to challenge his body and climb to great heights.  As the younger brother of some pretty amazing climbers, he has a great example.  Last week he led the way.

This little tower is at the playground downtown.  We've been to this playground many times over the years and I don't remember my other children climbing up here.  Maybe we've forgotten.  But we hadn't been to this park in a long time, almost a year, because the last time I remember coming to this park, B got lost and was found in the parking lot, that is not near the playground, by the friends we were meeting.  That was stressful and we haven't been back for a long time.  But now we've had 2 nice experiences, so this park will be on our list again.  And the weather is lovely, and G is home full time so we can go to fun parks every day!

Straight straight straight

We were navigating through a parking lot recently and I heard B start to chant out our present course.  Straight-straight-straight-straight-straight-right.

He's so funny and awesome.

I'm a giant!

We visited the museum in Gtown.  They have renovated the children's area beautifully and now have a bathroom at the back of the room with an adult and child toilet together.  I thought it was pretty awesome, so did B.  I sent him in there once to go potty and after several minutes went in to find him half naked just marveling at the tiny toilet.  He was taking turns going on each.

Also in the museum is this nice mural depicting the people of our state.  B told me "The man painted black is blowing on a conch shell horn."  I just said "yes" and wondered where he heard that or how he came up with that.

B is such a happy boy.  He makes people so happy.  I'm glad to be his mom.  He says the most funny things.  When I say "I love you little boy" he'll say "I love you big girl."  He also told me "I love you more than all of your feelings."  He's a very sweet boy.

Here he is begging for all grandma's pennies.  She brought them to the museum just for this purpose put B got the lions share because he was the most persistent.
