Sometimes Too

I'm in the mood to write something, to stretch a bit. Outlining is good but it can be a stumper to creativity. Working at home has presented some unique challenges that I shan't go into. But less time is what it all boils down to. And the time I do have I am extremely not motivated.

But, Emmett said two cute things this weekend, and I thought I would share. We spent the waning daylight trolling in a river on a friend’s boat, and the captain let my son Jackson take the helm. That evening, after our guests had treated the boys to ice cream, Emmett sat on a high barstool next to the kitchen island chatting happily with our friend Terri.

He told her, "I always like your house."

He's three years old mind you, and just as cute as can be imagined. He asked Terri if she had ever seen a cartoon the name of which she couldn't make out. She said she hadn't.

"He picks his bugars and eats them."

"He does?" She said does more like du-uhhhhh-zzzzz…

"I eat my bugars some times too."

Funny how honest kids are. Well, at least she learned that someone likes her house.

I hate outlining and you can't make me do it!

Oh. Sorry.

What cartoon, Ren and Stimpy?

I used to love that show, at the time boogers seemed pretty funny.

Your son is a master of the social niceties. No finishing school will be needed for this lad.

I imagine Terri was charmed. I certainly would have been. You've gotta love three year olds.

Now I know you're not that busy, Scott. I've seen you elsewhere. Come and say hi before I forget all about you. =)

Emmett is awesome.

Ah, honesty from a 3-year-old.

Just asking - if Emmett were to throw temper tantrums on bedtime would you squirt 2 teaspoons of vinegar into his mouth?

LOL. Enjoy it. Mine are getting too old to say anything cute anymore, though I get a few rare moments still.
