The Joys of Boys

That's right, it's time for another segment of, "The Joys of Boys!"

Chase is intrigued with Lightning McQueen and all of the other Disney Cars characters. He has taken to telling us that, "he is out of gas" when he's tired and needs to refuel. The first time he said it I thought I would wet my pants laughing!

Late this morning Chase decided he wanted a brownie. I'll give him credit that he had eaten a fairly good brunch, but I still wasn't sure about the brownie. He informed me that he has two tanks, one is on the left and one is on the right. The one on the left was full from soup, the one on the right was waiting for a brownie.

Chase is quite the determined little guy and he can also be quite convincing. Lately he has started finding ways to convince us to take him outside (in the really hot, humid weather) so he can play. Here is an example, "I love you more than anything, I love you all the time. Because I love you, I'm sure you will take me outside." Seriously, how do you say no to that?

Chase has also started the "you don't love me" if you get on to him or he does something he knows upsets you. At first it broke my heart, not it just drives me nuts... I wonder if I ever did this to my mother... Mom, I'm sorry!

Last but not least, how about this little tid bit that he's started with, "I was wondering if _____________." You fill in the blank. I bet he says this 10 times a day and it totally cracks me up. Guess that little brain just never stops!

***I am grateful for
1) The Joys of Boys!
2) wonders, simply fascinating
3) I love yous
4) lap time when Chase actually sits still
5) evenings after those long days....

Oh, Kahla...what a sweetie! I am cracking up at his "two tanks" idea. How creative! :) Boys are so much fun.

Mine does the "I don't love you anymore!!!!" thing, too. I'm just glad to know that Chase is doing it, too, so that I'm not alone!

I can't wait to see all of you again! Love you, and give him a huge hug from me!
