He has potential, really he does!

It is almost midnight and I still have 2 munchkins that are wide awake. One little 3yo in particular is counting out loud right now...

"one, two, fwee, foh, fiiive, sixteen, benineteen, fowteen, nineteen

I count fo you mommy!!!"

Ummm... yeah... I think it's time to start some lessons with the little man. It's a sad day when you counted better last year than you do now! Whew, it's a good thing we don't have preschool testing or something around here. I'd be in big trouble! So what would they put him in? Remedial counting?

I wonder if he'd get extra credit for this talent:

The rest of the fam, we can't touch our nose with our tongue. Weirdo. I mean, unique child of many talents!

I also realized a while back that he knows ZERO songs like Itsy Bitsy Spider or Jesus Loves Me. And wanna know why?

No, it's not because I'm completely neglectful of poor child number 3...

It's really sad for me to admit this publicly... but whenever I try (or tried!) to sing a song to him, he'd reach up with his chubby little fingers and SQUEEZE MY LIPS SHUT. And then he'd whisper "No sing, mommy."

So lest y'all have pity on this blonde boy, just remember, it's all his fault that he doesn't know any lullabies or even how to sing the ABC song! Hmmm... I wonder if he's ever said "No sing, daddy" ??? I'll have to ask David about that when he gets back from work tonight.

Speaking of work, I got to go to work with him yesterday!!! And why in the world would that be even remotely exciting? Well, the kids went to a friend's house while David I slaved away HERE for a 25 hour layover. I know, I know... it makes you want to cry a tear for me and for him, doesn't it? How does he endure such difficult work? It takes a special kind of person, let me tell you!!!

And lastly but not leastly, we got a new dog... She's a white German Shepherd puppy!

Currently, her name is Snowball. We're not too crazy about it though... it just doesn't roll of the tongue very well. Dash really wants to name her "Cloudy." And he really wants her middle name to be "With a Chance of Rain". It's time to send in her papers so we really need to decide. What do y'all think? I believe the choices are Snowball, Snowflake, Cloudy and Avalanche.
