We put up our tree on Friday - we refuse to do ANY Christmas decorations prior to Thanksgiving. As I was stringing the lights around the tree. Pre-School Worm was "organizing" the ornaments. Completely surrounded by tree ornaments, Worm 2 took a strong tone to Pre-School Worm.

Worm 2: "Logan, you are completely surrounded...you are going to step on them and get hurt. DON'T MOVE"

Pre-School Worm: (moving) "I'm not talking to you"

Worm 2: "Logan - I just told you; don't move and WHAT did you JUST do" "You need to listen"

Pre-School Worm: "I'm only 3, Dad, I'm not 17!"

The Debate Begins....

Preschool: "I need a person."

Daddy: "What, Preschool?"

Preschool: "Daddy, I want you to play with me."

Daddy: "No. I want YOU to play with ME."

Preschool: "Noooooo, I want YOU to play with ME."

Daddy: "NO, play with ME."

Preschool: "OK!"

The boys run off giggling...

Random Stuff...

Someone showed me this in Chicago when we were talking about YouTube...she warned us, "you won't be able to take it back once you see it"....

"fuzzy little man peach" is now in my vocabulary....sigh.

The guy changes his clothes to match the furniture....it's really strange.

I need a person....

Can't believe it's already Labor Day Weekend..where did the summer go? In our sleep deprived state I guess it passed us by..

Some more thoughts about Pre-School Worm and Baby Worm...

Pre-School Worm

"I need a person" - stated when Pre-School worm doesn't want to play alone.

Every meal is "Lunch" and anything stated in the past is "Yesterday" (i.e., noah spent the night yesterday...(2 weeks ago), I spent the night at Grandma's yesterday)

Baby Worm is in LOVE with her daddy....when stares at Worm 2 whenever he's in the room and when he talks to her she just BEAMS with excitement.

She just started eating cereal and tried carrots for this first time last night. Pre-School worm ate more of her carrots than she did...."mmmm...mom these are good, a little mushy...but good"

Sounds of Summer

As I’m typing this right now, Pre-School Worm (age 3) and his cousin(Kindergartner Worm) are running around on the deck….cheering on Worm 2 as he goes around in circles mowing the lawn.

Worm 2 hates mowing the lawn.

But when you have your own cheering section as you round the house – how can that be so bad?

More toddler worm-isms

The latest in toddler worm speak...

"Can we cuddle a 'lil bit?" - Said every night right before bedtime.

"Maybe tomorrow?" - A response to far too many questions asked of him, such as, "Logan can you pick up your toys please?"

"Byerly's" - Said with a really drawn out southern accent, sounds something like "Buuuyaaaarrrrrleeeees".
