You’re beautiful mom! [manipulation]

So, this just went down at the Cork dinner table:

Ethan (after drinking 2 glasses of apple juice and not touching his dinner): “Can I have some more apple juice please?”

Me: “Not until after you eat your sandwich.”

Ethan (Moments later while stroking Leann’s hair): “You’re beautiful mom!”

Leann: “Awww, you’re so sweet, thank you!”

Ethan (without skipping a beat): “Mom, can I have some more apple juice please?”

We were getting ready to leave the house…

Me: "are you ready to go somewhere new?"

Ethan: "yes, the gym….are you going to wear your jammies??"

Me: "these are my workout clothes, not jammies"

Ha! Maybe it is time for new workout clothes, since I look like I am
going to bed instead of the gym.

Happy Father’s Day (the missing post)

[Editor's Note: I actually posted this on father's day but just realized that it never showed up so I'm posting now]

Happy Father's Day to my wonderful husband Josh!  We love you so much! The kids and I had a great time this week making our presents for Josh!  We had a photo shoot with the boys doing their favorite things while Josh was in California.  Kalvin was caught in the action playing ball (He is such a good thrower already!) and Ethan had a blast running back and forth down the hallway racing Kalvin.  Here is the finished product.  We celebrated Father's day by going to the Keg for dinner (yummy) and going to see the Green Lantern today.

Me (as Ethan was being escorted to bed): "Goodnight Homeboy"
Ethan (walking away as if saying this was common terminology): "Goodnight Homeslice"

That kid makes me smile! 🙂 🙂 🙂
