The Boy Brings Me Joy

And yes, I like that my title is a cheesy little rhyme.

Here are two recent happenings that just make me want to squeeze my little mini man and never let go!

We were getting ready for a family trip and I had him pick out four favorite movies to bring in the car.

His selections:
Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Star Wars: A New Hope
My Little Pony: Friends Are Never Far Away

Then, just tonight, after the kids were in pajamas, we said family prayer. When the prayer ended, instead of saying "amen," the Boy indignantly pointed out that the little penguin tag was missing from his pajamas.

Boy: The penguin is gone!
Me: Boy -
Boy: It's supposed to be right here! (emphatically patting wrist)
Me: Boy -
Boy: It's gone! (Much weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth)
Me: ...
Boy: (sniffles)
Me: First of all, your pajamas are on inside-out.
Boy: Oh.

Girls are fun but I sure am glad I have my Boy.

I love that he chose My Little Pony.

Maybe My Little Pony was a nod to his sister. ;)

I'm giggling that his pj's were inside out...
