She's Your Life

This post is a testament to my husband.

The boys came home from a long day of swimming with Daddy.

They picked up some cheeseburgers on the way home.  Ryan had asked me if I wanted any, and I said no.

When he got home and was taking out all of the burgers to find the plain one for Rylan, he told me that he bought one for me anyway, just in case.

So as we were sitting there and they were eating, Ryan asked me again if I wanted one.  I said no.

Then of course, Nathan, the vulture swoops in and, at least for this week, will eat anything and everything in site, asked if he could eat it.

Ryan said yes, but Nathan wanted to make sure. He said, "Did you get this one for Mommy?"

Ryan answered, "Yes, but even if you want to eat it, I could give Mommy one of mine."

Nathan said, "I  know you would Daddy, because she's your life."

We don't know if he meant to say life or wife, but it was so sweet, and I thought, that's so cool that Nathan knows his Daddy loves his Mommy so much that he would give her his cheeseburger.

I love that Man.  He's been an awesome husband for 10 years now.  It's awesome to have such a great example for my children, it's what I always prayed for.

I Don't Stink

It was time for a shower.

I said, "Come on guys, it's time to take a shower."

Nathan said, "Why?"

I said, "Because you stink!"

He said, with a little twang in his voice, "I don't stink, I'm a lady."

Just for clarification sake, I asked him if he knew what a lady was and he knew....he also just knows how to get a laugh!

Squeeze Your Cheeks!

So, I don't know if I've ever told you this one....but Rylan was probably about 3, an early 3. 

This is when they're really learning a lot about life and picking up on things you never would have thought a child could comprehend.

On the other hand, the don't quite get analogies or sayings that have two meanings. 

For example:

Rylan was with Grandma at the park.

Of course, like all kids do, in the middle of the park, in the most inconvenient place, Rylan declares he really has to go to the bathroom.  Like, really has to go....#2.....

So Grandma says okay and they try to gather things together, including Nathan who's about 1 and a half at that time.

Rylan's trying to wait, but you know, when you're three, the world revolves around this.

So Grandma is jogging a little in front of him saying, "Come on, let's go, you can make it!  Squeeze your cheeks."

She takes a look behind her to see how Rylan's doing and sees him squeezing his cheeks. 

He's got his hands on either side of his mouth and is pushing as hard as he can.

He says, "What's that gonna do?"
