So first I have to share that around my house, we use the word "treat" to apply to many things: an after-dinner snack when the boys have eaten well, a new toy for no reason, playing with someone you don't get to see often---generally, anything that is earned or a special surprise in the course of a day.
Add to that the fact that I am no longer babysitting extra kids, so Optimus doesn't have anyone to play with, in his mind. I kept telling him I was working (hey, I was! on the household budget, on a Mary Kay mailing, on my email!) and he was getting all worked up because no one (i.e. Me) was playing him. And so he finally says to me with a totally straight face:
Mom, playing with me is a treat, but you're being nasty and now I'm not going to play Legos with you.
He is five.
Ok, now that that is out of my system, I just wanted to add that I saw a cool blog, namely Book Club Girl, and she had this long showing of book covers in her left-hand margin. SO, I liked it so much, I am thinking I will put some book covers down the side myself!....as soon as I figure out how to do that! :) Always diving head first into technological adventures, that's me! Pray I don't screw up my blog layout.....again. But I always fix it, right?? ....guys? I'm just very visual and I like the organized straightness of vertical rows of little square pictures....doesn't it just give you little goosebumps?? Right. Moving on.
I'm thinking this picture proposition could include movie posters and TV stills too...but only for the stuff I really like! ;)
My son just came in, having combined two toys, and asked me, "Look mom, isn't this impressive?"
Indeed. As is your vocabulary son! ;)
