Sensory Overload

Amidst the Saturday morning chaos (the kind that dad doesn't get to see while at work during the week)

Jerry: "Well, we have kids!  That's why!"

Barking Spiders

Dinner conversation:

((((( someone farts at the dinner table))))

Mom:  "Was that a barking spider?"
Dad:  "Yep.  I bet its under the table."
Jerry: "There's no barking spider in here.  They live in the garage."
Dad: "They live in the garage and they're loud and they stink."
Mom: "Well, unfortunately, I hear them in the house quite a bit."
Jerry:  "That's why our house smells so bad."

Last night Jerry was up screaming a few times.  Every time we went in he was legitimately scared of monsters.  This is confusing since he doesn't watch scary shows or play scary games...We have no idea where he learned the concept of monsters!  This conversation happened at 5am:

"Jerry, there are no such things as monsters.  There are people, and animals, and plants, and...bugs and birds..."

"Well dad, birds have those pointy noses."

Wake Up Call

I have always joked about somehow Jerry having implanted me with some sort of computer chip so that he knows the instant I wake up.  It doesn't matter how early I get up (to gain some coveted personal coffee/news time), he somehow ALWAYS manages to cut that time short immediately.  The other day I had rolled over, realized Calin had the kids, and proceeded to fall back asleep.  I woke up in the most ridiculous manner EVER.  He sure is lucky I woke up in a good mood...

I always joke that pretty soon he will awaken us with a 85 piece marching band and have the cymbals crashing in my ears.  Somehow, these antics just make me love this boy even more.

House of Brotherly Love

Today I was explaining to Jerry all about a friend who is having a baby soon.  Nothing TOO detailed, but that she has a baby in her belly and once she has the baby, it may be a while before we have a chance to play again, etc etc.  He then asks...

"Momma, do you have a baby in your belly?"

"No, Jerry, I don't."

...long pause and silence...

"Jerry, why?  You want another baby brother or sister?"

"Well, no.  I just want more Margo's."

My heart is still melting

Big dude

This weekend,while entering the pool, I was shuffling the stroller with Margo and Jerry (with his big inner tube) into the pool.  To enter the pool deck, you have to enter thru a locker room.  Jerry has ALWAYS gone with me thru the women's locker room.  Yesterday, he decided to go thru the men's and meet me out on the other side.  He said "Mom, I'm a big dude.  I'll go in the men's now."  I was so proud and sad at the same time.  You're only 3!?!?!?  You're already going on your own!?!?! ** sigh**

And later, at lunch, he asked for hot sauce on his ham sandwich.  He said "Momma, big dudes eat hot sauce."  Again...** sigh**

The clap

Today my baby started clapping.  We thought it was just a coincidence since she's always moving her little hands and feet, but its the real thing!  Its amazing what a good night's sleep can do!
