The Conversationalist

Five minutes ago, Liam and I had a dialogue that went something like this. Liam, looking at his right index finger: “Mama! Is this a Chicken Finger? I can eat it? I’ll eat my Chicken Finger, Mama.” My response: “You’re not a CHICKEN, silly! You’re a Human Being.” Liam, all excited: “I’m a BEAN? (huge…

The more he talks…

…the more he cracks me up. And, he talks ALL THE TIME now. This morning, we heard him singing in his room. Loudly, with gusto. It was “Moses Supposes” from Singing in the Rain. (We haven’t watched that in months….) I opened his door and said Good Morning. He looked at me with a completely…

Caught in the act

Last night I walked into the living room in time to catch Liam drinking from my can of Diet Pepsi. (He hadn’t spilled a drop, and I was secretly impressed with his skills, but I kept that to myself.)Me: “Liam. What are you doing?” Pause. You can see him trying to decide which way to…

‘Twas the Night Before Easter

With or without commentary, but at max…

Pinocchio, Robin Hood or Peter Pan…

Liam’s Actual Birthday Part 2. Candles.

Boy, was that fun. I know a three year old should have a Birthday Party with his friends, and he will – (even though Mama dropped the ball and started planning late!) But, y’know…there’s something to be said for a Birthday Cake at home in your sweats with your family. We played so much, I…

Liam’s Actual Birthday Part 1

Oh, my gosh – how much fun is today? Our little April Fool is THREE! The time has gone so fast. I can’t stop to write much now, because we’re still in the middle of it all and I can’t get emotional, so I’ll save that for “Part 2″!! But, I wanted to give you…
