Last weekend we made the trek to Coppell to have some cousin time; really Stuart was going hunting and I took advantage of his proximity to Dallas to make it into a fun trip for us all. :) The boys had a grand time playing with baby Kate and Joshua and baby Kate and Joshua were just as cute as ever. Oh and I got to visit with my middle sister!

Tyson: I'm in love with (fill in the blank with a girl's name from school).
Me: That's really nice that you like (so and so) so much but you aren't "in love" with her.
Tucker: I love YOU!
Me: Thank you booger. I love you too. Tyson, mommy's in love with daddy and mommy and daddy love you and Tucker. You love us and Mimi and Peepaw and Kate and Joshua but that's a different kind of love. You aren't quite old enough to be loving your friends.
Tucker: But MOMMY, God says to love our friends. That's what GOD says.
Tyson: Yeah, God says to love even our bad friends.
Stuart: Yeah MOMMY.
Me: Well...alright then.

Tucker REALLY wants to have a baby. Well, he really wants me to have a baby so that he can play with it and hold it and be and older brother. So much so that he asks for a baby when it comes to receiving gifts. Yeah...
Anywho, I got to watch my friend's baby today and Tucker was just beside himself.
He would make a good big brother, no?
Think my friend will let me keep him? ;)

T: Mommy, why do you like Coke so much?
C: Well, I guess I like the taste.
T: [long pause] You sure do drink it a lot.
C: I know. Mommy needs to try and not drink it so much.
T: Why do you drink so much soda?
C: I'm not really sure buddy. It's a bad habit.
T: Daddy drinks soda too.
T: You know you really shouldn't drink soda.
C: Yes, yes, I know.
T: You know why?
C: [goodness, let me count the ways...]
T: It's bad for your teeth. Really bad.
T: You should drink milk or water like me. Those are good for your teeth.
Thank you Dental Awareness Month for this public service lashing from my SIX year old.
