Shawn: "You have already been in for a long time."
M: "I want to stay in for three days."
For the record we did not honor this request.
Micah wore a sweater this weekend and it was nice enough that no coat was needed. He had it on again today and when we went to head out the door to music this was the dialogue:
Mom: "You need to get your coat on."
M: "My sweater keeps me warm."
Mom: "It is too cold, you need to wear your coat today."
M: "Dad told me my sweater will keep me warm."
This kid worships his dad so it was no easy task to convince him otherwise.
Lately. My friend with kids similar in age to ours calls the younger "me too" and Micah fits that to a T when it comes to copying everything his big brother does and says. The good news is that he adds his own flourish.
