Bud discovered the game of hangman last night. Ginger invited him to play a few games before bed, and he loves it. He asked me to play this morning just as I was sitting down to eat breakfast, so I told him he would have to wait a minute. I then heard him mutter that he would just play by himself. I was really interested to see how it was going to go.
A few minutes later, Bud walked up to me (looking rather disappointed) and dejectedly said, "Playing hangman with yourself is kinda easy." Thank goodness he didn't think it was hard!
After Big and I dropped Bud off at school we decided to run some errands. We had a successful and fun shopping trip. Big did a great job manning the list so we didn't forget anything. In the car on the way home, I looked back at Big and said, "I like you!" He gave me a bored look in return and replied, "You've mentioned it."
Clearly, I must tell my kids that I like/love them too often. But, I believe a job isn't worth doing unless you do it well. I'm practicing for when they're teenagers and it will come in handy. To torture them.
I'm gonna be the best!
