The Silver Lining

We had a first tonight in our house. Our little caboose, Maddox, threw up. It was so sad seeing someone so little hurting and heaving. As firsts go, I had to document this of course. However, the truly noteworthy part, the silver lining, is his incredible Daddy. How many Daddies would drop everything and hold their sweet pukey baby in their arms?

Green with Envy

Penis envy anyone? I know a shocking statement for most but there is nothing shocking about it at my house. With three boys and a husband, penises and talks about them, abound. Most of my humorous penis journaling has been in regard to the funny things that Evan has said so it is no surprise that he has continued to amuse me with his comments.

His latest:

While I was getting ready to get in the shower recently, Evan fell and punctured his lip with his tooth. I had to run out of the bathroom naked to tend to Evan. When I finally got him calmed down and the bleeding to stop, he looked at me with true concern and said "Mommy without a penis, you dead. You need a penis." WOW! That definitely puts quite an exclamation point on the notion of men loving their man parts - without one, is death.

Then while playing in the yard with our neighbor's dog, River, Evan noticed River's penis. He said "Mommy, look, he has one." I said "Yes, he has one of the balls (because they were playing ball in the yard)." Evan said: "No, Mommy, he has a penis." I said: "Of course he has a penis, Evan, he is a boy." To which Evan replied, "But it is not a very good one. It is not too long." Seriously?!?

Hi Cootie

My favorite salutation as of late. I have been saying "Hi cutie." to my little Maddox for quite some time. A couple of weeks ago my little man said it back to me for the first time. I melted as his little face lit up and he said, in his sweet little voice, "Hi cootie." Perfection!
