You all know how babies seem to get all the attention…and that has been no exception at our home either these days. My biggest boy has been wonderful at helping out, lending a hand and doing all things “Big Brother” for his little bear bear. One of my favorite things about Wyatt is the funny sayings that he comes up with. Scott began years ago writing all of his Wyatt-isms in a journal that he can pass on to him when he gets older. This is definitely one for the book!
As we were waiting at the pediatrician’s office this morning, Wyatt starts talking about his birthday party (which has been a hot topic lately and seems to change with the wind). He decides to quiz me on what themes of parties he’s had so far…so he begins:
Wyatt: “Mommy, do you remember my second birthday?”
Me: “Yes, darling, it was John Deere.”
Wyatt: “Yep. Do you remember my third birthday?”
Me: “Of course, son. We took you and Susannah to see Disney on Ice.”
Wyatt: “Yep. Mommy, I think I want to do that again.”
Me: “Okay. Do you want to take Susannah again, too?”
Wyatt: “Yep. Except this time I want to take her and Scarlett.”
Me: “Do you think you may want to take another boy with you this time?” (thinking that since he’s older and I thought at some point around now girls got cooties, he’d want to invite the guys)
Wyatt: “Nope. I want to take two girls. Yep, that’s what I want to do.”
Then he looks at me with one of those light bulb moments like I came up with this idea of dating two sweet little girls at the same time at the ripe age of almost 6…and he says: “Mommy, that’s a gggrrrreeeaaatttt idea!”
I guess he’s keeping his options open, huh?
