a few things that my little buddy did this past week.
he started crying the other night while eating his dinner. i asked what was wrong, and he said that he didn't want to sell the house and move this year.
i kept asking why, and telling him all of the great things that he would have in a new, bigger house.
he finally blurted "but home is where the heart is!!!! this is our home!!!"
i couldn't understand where that
was coming from. where in the world did he learn it?
but then i heard the tv on in the living room. one of his kiddie shows was on, and they were singing a song called "home is where the heart is..."
the next thing he did that made me both smile and wince was when he told one of his doctors that she had nice boobies.
(she doesn't, but at least i know that he's batting for our
my wife was mortified (and laughed too, but mostly embarrassed), and apologized, and explained to him that you don't say that to a woman. then, she made me explain it to him. many, many times.
i know it must make me look like a creep teaching him things like that, but i didn't, necessarily. he meant it as a compliment, and there's a simple explanation. a log time ago, he and i were playing lions, waiting in the brush for our prey (mommy) to walk by. he said, "we'll pounce on mommy's big butt". well, mommy didn't like hearing that too much, so i told him to pay her a compliment and say "nice butt".
i taught him that it makes people feel good to pay them compliments. i guess he was expanding on that with his doc.
the last thing that made me smile was when i was heading back into work saturday night. as i was leaving, he told me to have a nice day, and have a very happy new year.
