A Snack

AJ has never been the best eater. I mean, he eats, but he has to be told to and often times he fights it. He has never asked me to eat... Until now. Over the past week or so, he's been asking me for snacks! He wakes up in the morning and first thing he says is, "Good morning Mom, can I have a snack?" or after lunch or dinner, "Can I have a snack?" The first day I just thought he wanted junk as a snack, but then I got him some granola bars and these other soft healthy "bear paws" and he eats them. I'm just amazed that he's so hungry! It's a good thing! He must be growing :)

Random Thoughts...

I've got a number of random AJ funnies, thoughts and stories so I figured I'd put them all in one post:

* Yesterday, we were walking through the grocery store and AJ started singing "I'm sixty and I know it". It was hilarious because that's actually a song- however, the words are "I'm sexy and I know it", but at the same time, frightening to know he's heard the song.

* A couple days ago I switched purses and the next morning AJ noticed it. He told me, "Mom! I LOVE your new purse!" I love that he's observant like that, and I love that he gives compliments.

* I think AJ is going to make a great husband one day (A LONG time from now). He's complimentary, he's caring, he has great manners, he's sensitive, but manly, and he likes the idea of "tecting" me.

* About a week ago, we were driving around and he was playing on my phone and all the sudden he says to me, "Anyway, so... was your day?" 

* He told me the other day that when he's 5, he's going to kindergarten. This is true, of course, but I was surprised to hear he even knew that.

* Each day he comes home with a list of kids who are or aren't his friends. It's ever changing. And then he tells me which kid said "poopy butt". We're entering the tattle tale stage, I think.

* He wants to have a Star Wars birthday party. Daddy will dress up as Darth Vader, and grandma and I will both be Princess Leah :)

* We started using mouthwash and boy does it make brushing teeth so much easier! He loves the idea of swishing around bubble gum flavors mouthwash and then spitting it out. :)I love the idea that his teeth are clean.
