December 31

Colin (age 5)  Addison (age 2.5)

Colin was messing with Addison and she was screaming at him, so I called him over to tell him to stop.  While I was having a talk with him Addison started yelling, "No Mommy!  Leave him alone!  That's my brother!"

Colin (age 5)

He has started doing that thing where, when Addison does something crazy or silly he will look at me and shrug.

Addison (age 2.5)

pack pack = back pack

And I love how she says it.  And I refuse to correct it.

Colin (age 5)

Let me start by saying that Colin has races almost daily.  The "race tracks" (as they are invisible) can be a straight line... or they can go around the room.  More than once.  In a zig zag.  That was the case on this day...

Me "Wow, Colin!  How in the world do you remember where the track goes?!"
Colin "I remember because I always try to finish before sunset."

It was 7:00 pm.  It was dark.  Way past sunset...

A "That's okay Colin"

December 10

Talking to Addison
"Hey sweetie.  It's okay sweet girl."

December 9

Colin (5 years)

I was watching the kids play outside, they didn't know I was watching, and I heard Colin tell Addison,
"I am going to do something dangerous and you can't do it because you are just a little baby."
And then he patted her back and walked off.

(For the record, he was climbing up the slide, then trying to climb across the play swing set... which he actually couldn't do either)

Colin (age 5)

Garet and I were in the kitchen cleaning up dinner and told the kids to go to the playroom... we turned it into a game...
"Go into the playroom and the one that plays in there the longest wins!"

A few minutes later, we could hear Addison and Colin talking and then Addison came up to me and said, "Hey mommy, I love you."
And then we hear Colin yell, "I'M THE WINNER!"

Ha!  He tricked her into coming and talking to us so that he would be the last one in the playroom.

December 4

Addison (age 2)

I heard her yelling, "trouble!  TROUBLE!  And NO crying!"

I went to see what was going on... she had put a magnet on a chair... pushed it to the wall (where we give time outs) and was yelling at it.

December 3

Addison (age 2)

Addison came up to me crying about her "spilled water"
There was NO water in the cup
Real tears and all.
I pretended to fill up her empty cup with pretend water and she immediately started laughing and playing again.
