Brides and Ants
It makes me giggle to listen to Anthony's conversations, both with himself or with others. Today we were playing outside and a limo pulled up to the house next door (someone was getting married). For some reason, Anthony has been asking about limos for the last few weeks (don't know) so it was nice to be able to point one out to him. He asked what they were for so I told him that this one would take a bride to her wedding. He INSISTED on staying outside until the bride went into the limo so he could see her dress. As he's waiting, he's alternating between playing with chalk and squashing ants complete with "Watch out, it's coming to get you (insert some boyish sound here)...splat!" (as he squishes them with his bare hands!). Then the bridesmaids and bride walk out and he stops what he's doing, watches, and asks (loudly I might add) "Why are their dresses so poofy mommy?!" but that was followed by "Mommy, that bride was SO pretty, she's just the prettiest, scrumptious even, I like her dress.....what does scrumptious mean?" Followed by my reply and then "Can I go kill some more ants before naptime?" Oh my, he keeps me on my toes!
