They can be so darned adorable.
Last week, Christian took Alex to the grand opening of the new fire station. For three days after they came home, Christian kept remembering funny tidbits of their outing:
1. (already shared last week):
Reporter: “So do you want to be a fireman when you grow up?”
Alex (tilting his head and looking sideways): “No, actually I want to be Batman.”
2. Conversation with a fireman:
Alex: “Do you have a pole?”
Fireman: “A pool? No, we don’t have a pool!” (Laughing.) “That would be nice, wouldn’t it?”
3. Upon entering the office/bedroom, Alex gets super-excited: “Daddy, look! LOOK!”
Christian looks and can’t figure out what Alex is pointing at. “What is it, buddy?”
“Daddy, it’s a scissors just like the one we have!”
And then there’s Julianna. Julianna (AKA Minnie the Moocher) can’t talk yet, but yesterday morning, she saw Nicholas’s sippy cup full of breastmilk sitting on the table, and decided she was thirsty. She helped herself. You should have seen the look on her face. It said very clearly: What the @#$%^& &#$%^& was THAT?”
Ah, so cute. These are the moments that help make up for the frustrations and difficulties of being a parent.
