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**
