My goofy little boy, who has recently started putting his hands out to his sides while spinning around and around in the living room…
“Hey mom, when I spin and spin and spin, the living room spins too!”
Heading to Walgreens today…
Alex: Mom, what road are we on?
Mom: Halleck Street
Alex: ALEX Street?!
Mom: No, sweetie, Huh-huh-Halleck Street
Alex: Ha-ha-Alex Street!
(I gave up.)
Pulling out of Walgreens parking lot today…
Alex: Mom, where are we going?
Me: We’re going home to eat lunch.
Alex: Mom? McDonalds is the other way…
Me: We’re not going to McDonalds, Alex.
Alex: Well…I like Subway, too!
Me: Alex, we’re going to eat lunch at home.
Alex, with a grumpy voice: I don’t LIKE eating GROCERIES!
Last week, at lunch, when I set a plate of macaroni & cheese in front of Alex…
I don’t want macaroni, Mom. I’d rather have shrimp.
