Good News and Bad News

Today Eli told me: "I have good news and bad news."

"This is going to be funny," I thought to myself.

Eli: "The bad news is that I can't drink as much as you can, and the good news is that Daddy is doing good on his homework."

In other Eli news:

Eli is reading! He can read Bob Books. If you have a Costco card I recommend going now and buying the Bob Books there. They are a GREAT deal and are only at Costco for a limited time. Normally they are 5 sets for 14-17 dollars per set but for this special they have combined the 5 sets into 3 and they are only 10.00 per set! 30 bucks instead of 75 for all of the books. It's really cool. AND they are bigger than the original Bob Books.

My friend Valerie has a sister who has given us some hand-me-downs. One of the things she gave us was this really ugly pair of pants. They are just Levi jeans but they are light blue and not very cute. I thought that they would be good for camping or hiking. Of course they are Eli's favorite pants in the world. I told him to wear pants today and he came in to me in tears because he found a pair of Levi shorts and thought I had cut his pants. He said, "You shouldn't have cut my pants Mom!" I'm sure he was thinking that I sewed them into a blanket.

Last night at the Chevron Credit Union dinner/meeting, Eli told me that he was going to go cheer Brooklyn up because she got salad. I said, "well you got salad too." (The waiter had just put it down at his spot.) He looked freaked out and said, "I don't want salad!" And I cheered him up by taking it away.

This kid is so funny - he's become a tiny adult; keenly aware of everything we say and do.

I am honestly trying to make sure he's picking up good habits - it makes me nervous now!

Yes Stewart, it's a little freaky how he knows if you are doing your homework or not. LOL Can we say "pressure?

Becca: do you need my Costco card?

Dude, if my little guy is half as cute and smart as yours I will be a happy mom.
