>I love Christmas Break. I get time to recharge, cook, relax, and see family, while the kids get to go home and think up new material for me. I figure they have two weeks, they should be able to come up with some pretty funny stuff. What ELSE would they be doing right now??
>He Sees You When You’re Sleeping…
I was just in Phoenix visiting my ever-so-perfect Colton and Ayla. Yes, I know. I was also visiting their mom, Amy, and a plethora of favorite family. Have I mentioned that my family is top-notch? Highly entertaining. They also do a great job of congregating in Surprise, AZ, so I can see almost everyone almost every time.
Colton is 2.5years old and smarter than he should be. Smarter than potty training. In response to Amy’s offer to let him wear pull-ups one morning, Colton looked back down at his block tower, fiddled with it, and said, “No, you change my diaper in a little while.”
He will also offer suggestions for rearrangement of little sister. If I was holding Ayla, soon enough we would hear, “Mommy hold Ayla, Colton up?” Or, “Ayla crawl (pointing from baby to floor).” I’m flattered that he remembers me, and also that he wants me to hold him. That is, until he puts on the same performance for the homeless dude in front of Safeway. Okay, I’m kidding about the homeless dude.
Amy has gotten some good mileage out of Santa Claus this year. This video is of him watching a personalized message from Santa. Apparently the good behavior afterglow lasted approximately a day and a half. That’s pretty good for a 2 year old, I’m learning.
