Not a lot substantive to say right now. I just wanted to write about a couple of cute moments before I somehow forget them!
Recently when we were shopping in the grocery store, Aidan started wiggling and kicking his right leg. He had been sitting in the cart a while as it was a major stock-up trip. I asked him what was wrong and he looked like he was trying to find just the right words. Then he replied, “Mama, I have bees buzzing in my shoe!” It took me just a second to realize that his foot had fallen asleep and he was trying to describe the sensation to me. I thought it was a very inventive description for a 3 year old.
He has also started to think it is really funny to steal whatever spot Brandon and I have been laying in/sitting in. When he first wakes up in the morning, he always trots right into our bedroom and wants a few minutes to snuggle with us before we all get up for breakfast. If Brandon gets up to go the bathroom, Aidan excitedly moves over to Brandon’s spot in bed and gives me a cheesy grin. Then he says, “I’m taking Daddy’s spot! He’s gonna tell me to scoot my buns!” So when Brandon returns he obliges and tells Aidan, “Scoot your buns!” And Aidan giggles wildly. Today he did this to me during lunch. I left the table a couple of times to get things from the kitchen and each time I returned he had gotten out of the chair he had been sitting in and took whichever chair I had just vacated.
I came back and he was grinning from ear to ear and said, “I took your spot!”
There are so many fun moments with a 3 year old. I am truly a blessed woman.
