A Convo with My Oldest

Monday, May 14, 2012

Obviously, I adore Isaac. It's why this phase we're going through is so gosh forsaken awful. One second he's pleading that I hold him like a baby and rock him as he tucks his arm under mine to cuddle, and the next he's trying to pick Ezra up by squeezing his neck.

Yesterday, I tried to ask Isaac some of his favorite things about me. [it was after all mother's day]

It went along these lines:

Me: What are your favorite things about mama, Isaac?
Isaac: John Deere's
Me: [laughing] No, Isaac, what is your favorite thing to do with me?
Isaac: Uhhhhh, play John Deere tractors.
Me: Okay, what do you think mama's favorite thing to do is? What do I spend my time doing?
Isaac: Blue [we've discussed that while his favorite color is John Deere tractor green, that mine is blue].
Me: I can't do "blue." What do you think I like to do?
Isaac: Uhhhhhh, run!
Me: That's good! What's your favorite thing to do with me?
Isaac: Uhhhh, play the games.
Me: What games bud?
Isaac: All the games.
Me: What's your favorite thing about me?
Isaac: Your hair.
Me: You like my hair?
Isaac: Yup.Me: Well thanks bud.
Isaac: You're welcome.

@fontainenine made breakfast and I was hand delivered my mothers day card by a happy boy, so we're off to a good start!He's been difficult, but he's worth it, just like Ezra will be, if we encounter the same challenges!My sweet Ezra.

Kenley and I had a similar conversation last night.
Me: Kenley you fill my heart with sunshine, that makes me happy
Her: Cinderella makes me happy!
