June 24: We sent Granny Lu home today after a really nice visit here the last several days. She and Grandad arrived on Thursday night, and we had a fun time together celebrating Andrew’s third birthday. On his actual birthday on Sunday, we had a great time at Wingra Park with my family and Sarah and Wes and Bryan’s parents. Andrew is officially three now! Pictures are in the gallery.
A couple good recent comments by the young man:
Breakfast conversation with his dad:
Bryan: Andrew, please eat the crusts of your bread, not just the middle
Andrew: I don’t want to eat my crusts.
Bryan: Well, you know, you need to learn to eat your crusts because grown-ups eat their crusts.
Andrew: Am I a grown-up?
Bryan: No, not yet.
Andrew: Then I don’t need to eat my crusts yet.
On our way to a party, Andrew is in his carseat talking to himself:
"This party is going to be a yiddle bit fun. (pause) Not a LOT of fun. A yiddle bit fun."
Andrew’s word of the week is (unfortunately) "boring." He’s decided that many things are boring. We’re part way through a book, and he wants to stop because it is boring. We’re watching a DVD, and he informs us that it is boring. Since when did he become so worldly? Maybe since he’s three!
