sNuggLinG with the Little Man

Just me and little bud home tonight. It is so weird! Everyone had places to be and since we have an additional driver i was not needed to go out and retrieve anyone. So we just hung out--having conversations about things that i have no knowledge about. If only i understood ANY of what he is trying to tell me--well actually i do understand...SOME. He is such a good beggar and the sign drink is REAL CLEAR. So he flashes me the old drink sign--but i refuse to give in and let him SLUG the rest of my Pepsi-- I tell him to go get his own drink. I love his independence or his wanting to be independent. So off he goes, and i hear the ice maker going. He comes back downstairs with the biggest glass possible--[like the size of his head] and proceeds to climb up in bed with me. Will he share the said glass--NO. He was just taunting me with the lovely crushed ice--2/3 full, just like i like it. My other children struggle to make me a proper drink and here comes my "special" child with it--PERFECT. I am seeing a future here for him--only problem is that we don't hang out in bars or coffee houses. Maybe one day there will be a need for a drink specialist at QT--there is the job for him. He did finally let me have a sip--and i must say it was nice and cold and perfect--just like our evening together. Nothing like having a child snuggle up to you to fall asleep. I LoVe these moments.

My children....
have been a constant joy to me
