Cute things SS5 has done/said while he's been here
Mostly we bitch, but I'd be doing SS a disservice if I didn't share some moments where he made me smile. So here ya go. Remember, he's only 5, which makes some of these extra adorable.
REGARDING THE WALLPAPERING JOB I DID TO RESURFACE HIS DRESSER
"Daddy! DD22mo is trying to rip the paper off my dresser!"
"Well it's okay kiddo, it won't hurt her."
"But I LIKE the paper on it!"
REGARDING MY NERVOUSNESS ABOUT HOW HE'D REACT TO BEING TOLD THAT I COULDN'T GET HIM INTO T-BALL CAMP AND THAT SOCCER CAMP WAS WHAT I ENROLLED HIM IN
"Cool! I LOVE Soccer! I want to go practice right now!"
AFTER GETTING HIS FIRST PAIR OF CLEATS
Me- "SS, remember you have to break those in. They won't feel as comfy as normal shoes at first."
SS- "I don't care about that! I only care about the GAME!"
WHEN DH AND I WERE IN THE CAR TALKING ABOUT HOW EXCITED I WAS TO BE ABLE TO RUN AGAIN SINCE IT MAKES ME FEEL MORE ATTRACTIVE (Note: We thought he was asleep at the time.)
"Mimi I think you're BEAUTIFUL!"
BEFORE BED ONE NIGHT
"Mimi, I'm sad because I miss my Mommy."
"Well, it's okay to miss your Mommy. I miss my Mommy sometimes too."
"Who is your Mommy?"
"Grandma (my Mom's name)"
"Mimi, you know I miss you too when you're not around."
This one wasn't something he said, but a few days ago he didn't see that his baby sister (8mo) had crawled into his bedroom (I was in the bathroom at the time) and he accidentally dropped a toy dinosaur on her from the top of the bunk bed. She was upset, but otherwise fine, and even though I knew it was an accident and told him so he felt so bad that he put himself in time-out!
This one wasn't him, but was still adorable.
This morning I'm taking my DD22mo into her daycare, and she goes "SS is my friend!" I told her, "SS is your brother," and she says "SS is my brother AND my friend!"
So cute, all the kids. So cute.
I get frustrated with him, sometimes extra frustrated probably because I'm not as used to him as the girls, but he really is a good kid. Hopefully he stays that way *crosses fingers*
