There have been a few things that Ryan has said lately that I want to remember, so I want to document them here.
Just after having Leah, I was saying that I didn't want the kids to grow up. Ryan overheard this and said:
Ryan: "But I want to grow up."
Me: "Why do you want to grow up?"
Ryan: "Because when I grow up I can cook dinner and make the bed."
Oh the things he looks forward to.
Once in a while I'll look at Leah and say something about her being a little princess. (Yes, I'm one of those mothers that calls her little girl a princess, and no I never thought I'd be one like that).
When Ryan heard me call her a princess, this is what he had to say:
"She is not a princess. She doesn't have enough hair. She still needs to grow hair here and here and here (pointing at various points on her head). That is why I call her gweetie pie." (sweetie pie)
Even now he'll yell at me if I call her princess.
Yesterday in the car he said:
"Easy Mommy. There is a baby in the car. You have to drive S-L-O-W-L-Y when there is a baby in the car."
He is rather smart and protective. But for the record, I was not speeding.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
