Fast Asleep

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Don’t blink. Don’t move. Don’t. BREATHE.

Whenever Benny falls asleep like this, it means that the house will be quiet for an undetermined amount of time.

So I just sit. And watch. And take it in.

And hopefully catch a nap before the small giant awakens.

Where the Big Kids Play Ball

Monday, May 30th, 2011

Yesterday we took our boys to their first big league baseball game.

The whole time we were there, Benny (our soon to be four-year-old) begged for it to be his turn to play.

And we told him, this is a special place — where only the best of the big kids get to play on the field. But he never gave up.

“Daddy! You tell them big kids that it’s my turn to play or you’ll take away all their toys!”

What Mama Calls Him

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

Erma Bombeck once said that it’s best to test a name you’re about to give your child by opening the front door and screaming it at the top of your lungs over and over again. (Or something to that effect. I still haven’t successfully found the quote.)

Which is the perfect preface for this little story.

While we were standing in line at the store, a woman asked Benny what his name was. He immediately shyed away (I know, right?) and grabbed my leg for cover. (Because my legs are often mistaken for tree trunks.)

I took his hand and reassuringly said, “Go ahead, sweetie. It’s okay. Tell the lady what Mama calls you.”

And he said, “Mama calls me ‘Benny,’ or ‘Tigger’ or ‘BENJAMIN JUDE!’”

Kryptonite

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

To the naked eye, this is a fairly lame photo. It’s just a desk with some papers and a book on it. Plus some salami, cheese and a glass of water.

To me, this is a photo of my oldest son’s Kryptonite.

He hates to read. He hates homework. And he hates anything else that his teacher shoves in that yellow folder.

“Hate” is such a strong word. But it fits in this picture.

He hates it all.

Except for the salami, cheese and the glass of water.

What you don't see is Jake curled up under the desk.
