Our Little Comedian

Anderson continues to provide comic relief for our family every day. Here are the names he has come up with for himself and each of his siblings. I'm not sure how, but he lovingly and comicly refers to everyone by these names often!

"Walker Peanu-Jelly"
"Ellie Boba-Chanie"
"Anderson Bad Boy"
"Caroline Piggy"

When Anderson was helping me put potatoes in a big pot the other day (for mashed potatoes), he turned, looked at me lovingly, and said, "Mommy, you're such a good helper." I love that kid.

Yet another one of our conversations that I don't want to quickly forget:

A - Mommy, what's that? (holding a puzzle peice)
C - It's a tuba.
A - No, it's not a tuba.
C - Yes, Anderson, it is a tuba.
A - No, it's not a tuba.
C - Yes it is. It's a big tuba.
A - No, it is NOT a tuba.
C - OK, it's a horn. (exasperated)
A - OK, mommy, it's a horn . . . (turns around and comes back) NO, I CANT listen to you (pause) because. It's just a thing. You've got to be kidding me. (He walks out, and I'm left cracking up in the kitchen all by myself!)
