    Little man, 22 months, put together a 30 piece train puzzle by himself today. Studied the pieces one by one, no mistakes. His sister and I have put it together for him a few times but he never took much interest in it before. When he was done he pointed at it, grunted, and then did his warped version of Riverdance.

    I hosted a bridal shower yesterday (luncheon for 16!); the ladies stayed a little longer than I'd planned, so the lads got home before the guests left. All three of them chatted very nicely with everybody, but my favourite bit was when one woman asked Chico his name ("Chico"), his age ("5"), and if he was a good boy ("well...despite all appearances to the contrary...", followed by a wink and a big grin). I hooted, but the ladies looked a little nonplussed...I passed the devilled eggs again and poured a little more lemonade...

    peace

    Took DS7 for a haircut yesterday. Tried to convince him to try something different. When he got in the chair, he turned to the woman and sid "Standard boys haircut please, mom will tell you which clipper to use."

    "no chance of getting you to try something new?"

    To which he replied "I have a certain image to maintain, nerds everywhere sport this cut!"

    Love it! Talk about a child who knows and is clearly comfortable with himself.

    Mr W (2y6mos) came in our room this morning.

    He got on the bed, looked at DW.

    He put his finger on her chest and said:

    "You listen here, mommy. I am NOT going to school today. I am going to play tennis!"

    (he really likes hitting tennis balls with his little kid racket. )

    LOL!

    I love that.

    I think I like your experience this morning better than my own:

    This morning at 5 am my cat got on the bed and looked at me.

    He nuzzled me until I woke up, and then said:

    "Meow. RRRR-owl."

    For those of you who aren't fluent in early-morning-catspeak, this means, "Give me cat food stew."

    (He really likes eating cat food stew, which is smelly tinned food mixed with warm water.)
