Matthew memories

Sunday, April 26, 2009


Today I was getting Matthew ready for church. He is not one who wants to wear a tie. In fact there are some Sundays he does not want to wear any of his clothes. So for Easter Sunday, we got him a blazer jacket and clip on tie. Of course he did not want it, so we gave it to one of our girls, who gladly played along. "Oh, yes Mom, I will wear this if Matthew does not want it." That was just enough competition to get him to say, " No, it's mine." He has now worn it three weeks in a row to church. (We still need to give him a gentle reminder that one of his sister will want to wear it if he doesn't)

Today I was getting him dressed and I asked him, "Do you want to look like a missionary in this jacket?"

"No"

"Do you want to look like Daddy?'

"No, I want to look like a pirate."

I couldn't help but laugh, and then he proceeded to list other silly things he wanted to look like, just so he could get the same reaction from me. Silly, sweet boy. How does he even know what a pirate looks like?

He is such a sweet funny boy! When my kids are saying no to all the food I suggest I do silly things like that too. After they have said no to 3 or 4 real suggestions I will say things like, do you want a dog poo sandwhich.. and other things of the kind like frog legs... They always thing it is funny. I think it is cute when 2 year olds start understanding humor and make others laugh!
