I open the box and act shocked to find the puzzle pieces inside.
A few moments later, he comes up to me with one of his bins full of toys. “I got another surprise for you, Mommy. It’s not a secret.”
“It’s not a secret?” I ask.
He shakes his head.
“Is it because it doesn’t have a lid like the puzzle box?”

I kept the boys out by myself Tuesday night at Lil’ Hands Play and Party, so that hubby could paint the kitchen. Our house, when we bought it, came with flat paint on all the walls, which is a bad choice if you have little boys because it doesn’t clean. I was talking to the boys about Daddy painting while we were on our way home, and this is a comment I heard as we got out of the car.
“I can’t wait to see the kitchen… and I’m hungry.”

Toddler word of the day: “nokay”. A response to a question which always starts with “no” (because that is our favorite word these days) but changes mid-response because maybe a cookie (or ball or whatever) doesn’t sound so bad after all…

During the polar vortex this past winter, it got cold enough here in Florida for my next door neighbor to run his snow machine. 🙂 The boys had been used to the “snow” machines at Busch Gardens and other places that blow out tiny bubbles that look like snowflakes when they fall. When they ran out to play in our neighbor’s real snow, William bent down and scooped up a big handful. He said with utter surprise, “It’s cold!”
