A little while ago I asked Zack if he could help me with the Christmas cards. He wasn't too excited about it but said he would. I thought he could help put the stamps on. Anyway, I have been getting everything ready, he had lunch, etc. A minute ago he came downstairs and said:
Z: (Firmly) Mom, I can't help you, I have too much to do.
M: Oh really? What do you have to do?
Z: I have to organize all my Lego's, not play with them, organize them. It's going to take a long time.
M: That's OK, organizing is important.
Note the blur of hands as he quickly sorts! I have taught him well!
The other day in the car:
Z: Mom, I want to devour you!
M: Um, do you know what that means?
Z: Yes, it means I want to gobble you up!
Sometimes I want to gobble him up too!
