Larry as my witness...

100% true story: Last night around 7 pm I was feeding Larry. Lennon was begging me to water the plants. He wanted me to take the lid off his sippy cup so he could pour the rest into a house plant. I told him no repeatedly until finally he gave me a mean look and walked away.

He casually strolled over to the plant and looked at me again. He took a swig from his sippy cup, and looked right at me while he SPIT THE WATER OUT OF HIS MOUTH AND INTO THE PLANT. And then did the same thing again. All the time looking at me like, "I will always find a way...."

Me: "Lennon, did you just spit water into that plant?"

Lennon: "YEAH! I feed the plant! I feed the plant! I'm crazy!"

Me: (trying not to laugh) "I'm going to call Grandma right now and tell her what you just did."

Lennon: "Shut up! (then laughs his head off)"

You know how you can say shut up in a mean way telling someone to be quiet OR you can say it like YEAH RIGHT shut up? He said it the second way...not to be mean but probably because he hears me say it all day on the phone or to Tod when I can't believe something is true. That's how he said it.

We both had a good chuckle.

pretty sure I'll be laughing again in a couple hours when Jason returns from fishing (mmmhmmmm rough life) and eventually reads this post, which in turn will make him laugh like a little kid.

it's a vicious cycle.

you've heard it before but... you need to write a book.

We should totally be neighbors. Benson and Lennon are two peas in a pod. He did the watering-spit-act in his mini pool in the back yard for about 3 hours yesterday afternoon. I got dinner made! He watered the lawn, his trains, his mini slide. It was great and he was totally happy. I'm just glad he was outside.

Thanks for the encouragement. I think we'll make it... but still not sure on that idea.

PS Move to Germany!

PSS Your poo in the bed thing is the worse. I think you've got me beat.

My favorite post. Who is this kid? Why does he have the vocabulary of a 4 year old? We miss you guys and need to see those cute boys of yours.

Oh yeah ... he IS his father's son!
Brings back memories ...
I think we can safely say Lennon has officially graduated to the dreaded "T-2's". Hang in there Holly, it will get better.
