Since it was approximately one million degrees here today and the humidity was so high that the air outside is virtually solid, there was no outdoor playing this evening after dinner, much to Jonathan's chagrin. But, I did allow him to enjoy a Slow-Melt Popsicle on the couch after he'd eaten what I deemed an acceptable amount of "real" food. A red Popsicle and a khaki couch most definitely are NOT a good idea when combined with a two year old, but today I thought, what the heck, we need some new living room furniture anyway. He actually didn't make too big of a mess, surprisingly, so I guess Ashley Furniture will still have to wait a bit...
Here is J-man enjoying his treat. I can now actually tell him to look at the camera and say cheese. It's just that I have approximately one nanosecond before he turns away:
This next one is just after he'd held still for the aforementioned nanosecond. He wanted to touch the lens with red Popsicle hand. Definitely NOT a good idea as I do not want a new camera, at least not at the moment...
And, lastly, Jonathan and Alice, who was trying to sleep. She is actually quite deaf so she can't hear Jonathan screeching beside her, but he constantly wants to "tosh" her, so she's not able to get a lot of rest while he is around, despite her diminished hearing:
And I'll end with a little tidbit. As Jonathan and I drive home after work/school each evening, we chat about the day. Bryan is often a topic of conversation. Jonathan's current favorite question is "(name of person) doing?" Today that was Daddy. When I answered "Daddy? I don't know? What IS Daddy doing?," Jonathan replied "Daddy golf." Interesting as Daddy SAID he was going to work this morning. I called Bryan to tell him Jonathan ratted him out and while I had Bryan on the phone I asked Jonathan to tell me what Daddy was doing, totally thinking he would repeat what he'd said earlier. But no, apparently my all too tricky husband has already infiltrated my sweet baby boy's thought process because Jonathan replied "Daddy working."
I am doomed.
