The day Justin came home from Iraq, Calvin asked me why we're having a party. I said, "Because Justin's been gone so long, and we're so happy he's back!" He said, "Yeah! He's been in Iraq ALL DAY!"
short video. Calvin saw him walk off and said, "There's Justin! And he brought back the
"Mom, do I have a pimple on my BUTT? Because I think I have a pimple on my butt! Do I? Is there a pimple on my butt? I felt a pimple on my butt, is there a pimple on my butt?!...etc. etc." Takes a 4 yr old to say those 2 words that many times in 1 minute. haha! (Sorry, we try to stick to "bottom", but it doesn't always happen. We grew up saying butt, and we knew how to be plenty polite as kids, so...we're not militant about saying, "bottom".)
"Mom, how do I win with 'Uncle' Tyler? Do I sit on him and fart on him?" Why yes, son, yes you do! That's exactly how you win with Uncle Tyler! haha, Payback time! Tyler lived in our basement apartment for a large portion of Calvin's life (infant through age 3)....just the time when it's sooooo fun for Calvin's big friends to teach him all kinds of fun things :). We've warned Tyler it'll be payback time someday.
"Spangles is even more beautiful at night!" (it's a fast food restaurant native to KS)
Calvin is on a mac and cheese kick. I gave him mac and cheese inside a tortilla and he lit up with pure delight (impressive, because he's never been excited about any food or treat, really) and said, "MMMMM! This is the best thing EVER!"
Calvin came home with a binder from his preschool, a compilation of a page for each kid with basic info, so parents and students can look at each child's picture and information....a get-to-know-you type thing.... Apparently he told his teacher his favorite food was steak. ???
Calvin has been complaining about going to AWANA lately...he finally said, "It's all that dancing and standing they do!!!"
He loves his new bowties from Auntie Bobbie (3 vintage bowties--they're awesome!). He wore one to church, then we had to spend a good amount of time after church searching for the 2 others, which he had stuffed in his pockets (unbeknownst to us) which had holes.
Life with a 4-yr-old boy definitely is a huge source of entertainment! Such randomness, humor, insightfulness, inquisitiveness.... I need to be better about recording more Calvinisms, since notable sayings are almost daily. I just forget so quickly! That's why I have this blog for our family!
