My boys have said some truly memorable stuff in the last little while and I wanted to make sure I recorded before I lost my little index card that records this kind of stuff.
-About 5 minutes after we got him his very own Harry Potter wand at Harry Potter World Evan rolls up with a very sweet and truly disappointed look on his face. I asked him what was wrong and he said, as he gave his wand another shake ..... "My wand doesn't work" He had been going around trying to do magic and was sad when it didn't work for him. I have to admit that it broke my heart a little to kill the magic, but I reminded him that it was all pretend. We watched the first movie with him and had a long discussion about how it was a story and some of the scary things in the movie are all fake, because the story wasn't real. He said that he remembered that but how did I explain the magic demonstrated in the wand room we had just come from. I was so glad that we could keep a little of that magic alive and I told him that the wands worked in that room because that room was magic. He had a death grip on his wand the rest of our time in Florida and he now calls it his "wand sword". He loves it!
-About a month before we left for Florida Evan made another milestone and really comprehended what it meant to be adopted. It was a very sweet, and tender moment for us. I was curious to see how he reacted when we saw his tummy mommy in Florida, now that he actually understands who she is. It was so sweet because he really enjoyed his time with her and her family and kept asking us "can I sit with my tummy mommy at church?" You could tell in his hugs that he really enjoyed his time with her.
-During breakfast the other day Evan blurts out, "I wish my penis was really big!! Like to my knees ... or maybe to all the way to the floor and then I could pee right onto the ground!!!!"
-Evan is always talking about getting married! He moved from his older bus driver with a mullet to his teacher. He was planning their wedding and everything :-) So his teacher was telling me that when they were talking about it she reminded him that she is still quite a bit older than him. Evan said "no I'm not going to marry you right now, I'll marry you when I'm older." Miss Kyla sadly informed Evan that when he gets older so does she. Evan thought about it and said, "Fine ... Alexa will do." (Alexa is the only girl in his class of 15. I think it is hilarious that he sees her as his only other option now. Too Funny!!!
-Evan keeps telling people, "Did you know that I was born in the hottest place in the universe?? I was born in Florida!!!"
-There was a lot of talk about Evan's tummy mommy in Florida. Questions from Evan and we saw her a couple of times. Well my little smarty pants of a 2 year old caught right on, which surprised me because he is really young still. He knew that Evan's tummy mommy wasn't the same as his. He kept saying, "Where my Tummy Mummy??" "Who my Tummy Mummy?" It was really sweet!
-Landon and I were in the shower and he looks up, points to my chest and says, "Mama, what are those?" I answered truthfully that they were my boobs and he responds with "Why are you wearing them?" I told him that God gave them to me. Landon started laughing and said "They are funny!!"
-"I'm gonna get a new wheelchair like brother." My heart sings at how much Landon admires his older brother. With all the people that Landon loves, he holds nobody in higher regard than his big brother Evan. I'm even crying just writing this. I love it, and I hope it never changes. Evan will be such a source of emotional strength for Landon and Landon will be Evan's physical strength. It is going to be beautiful!
-We were all playing Rock Paper Scissors and Landon would call it "Rock n' Roll scissors"
-"God put boogers in my nose, right Mama?" "yes Landon he did" "Thats why I eat them."
-"Setawen" = skeleton
-"Syboh" = Spider
