When I'm saying "I love you" to Jack, Ian prompts me to include the missing but typical phrase, "Say 'I love you to pieces,' Mom!"
When watching the opening scene of the Lion King the other day, Ian informs me about Simba, "He got blessed." What a great assimilation of experiences, dude! Right on, I was impressed!
One of Ian's favorite sayings is, "Guess who I love?" I always guess everyone else in the family, but of course, he always refers to the person to which the question is directed as the one he loves.
The other day after some friends came over, I asked with whom he most enjoyed playing. His response, "I just love the girls, Mom. Makaili's so beautiful!" Our friend Makaili is 8 years old!
Ian's latest artistic endeavor is making pictures of the floating lights as in the Tangled scene. I'll have to include a picture next time.
At my last trip to the doctor's office, when we get into the exam room, Ian gives me a stern look and says with raised eyebrows and a pointed finger, "be good!"
To be continued...

I thought it worked well as a learning time manipulative and discussion piece.
Love these pictures of our sleeping brutes and beauties. Can you tell who the first one is? Too funny.
Yes, this was all happening at the same time - Hallelujah! - on a Sunday afternoon. I had to snap the evidence before joining in to complete this scene from the napping house!
Ian really wanted to wear some deodorant one day. At first he was ready to use a glue stick! Then I thought it would be less sticky, so I convinced him to use a large tube of chap stick instead. This kid is HILARIOUS.
Brooklyn's class participated in the International Festival at her school recently. She and her classmates rocked out to some fun 60's tunes. It was such a delight to see her dance up there with her class.
I was beaming with motherly pride.
The following day, I was showered with pancakes and tissue paper flowers for breakfast. Thanks kids and Stevebo. I feel loved!
