Just because we can't get quite enough of trains in this family... we had to fit in The Polar Express this year. It was perfect timing right before the baby arrived. Crew was absolutely in heaven. He couldn't take it in fast enough. Good times...
Yesterday Riggs took these colored circle stickers out of my office and put them all over his dresser. When I found them, I was telling him that we don't put stickers on furniture and that he needed to take them all off. His response was, "Mom, do you know why I did that? So that if someone comes over who doesn't know about patterns, they can learn." Apparently he's been learning patterns in preschool. When I looked at them again, sure enough, they were in a perfect repeated pattern of green, pink, yellow.
This happened awhile ago, but I have to include it before I forget about it. I was in the bathroom with the boys one morning and they were all 3 standing in front of the mirror while I did their hair. Riggs was getting over a bad cold and was sniffing and coughing and snotty. After a bad sneezing and coughing fit, he just burst into tears. When I asked him what was wrong, he just blurted out, "I am acting like a PIG!"
Riggs and I were waiting for our car at the car wash the other day, and there was a show on about camel spiders. They were telling all the facts about these spiders and Riggs was super into it. They said that camel spiders can run 10 miles an hour. After he heard that, Riggs said, "Mom, how fast can you run?" I said about 6 miles an hour. He then looks at me with a little grin and says, "You've just got to try harder."
After I had just finished washing the windows, Riggs started playing with the hose in the back yard. I told him he had to spray towards the grass, but of course, that was just a disaster waiting to happen. After chewing him out for spraying my clean windows, he came in the house, apologized and then said, "Mom, are you having a rough day?"
