Effusive Eli

I've noticed that Eli will be talking to me and I answer "uh huh" and "really" and after about 15 minutes he's still going strong and I have no idea what he's talking about! It makes me feel like a bad mom but seriously, he can sometimes talk non-stop!

I have managed to remember a few funny things that he's said recently though.

Eli:I know a nickname for Danny.
Me: What?
Eli: Dan.
Me: Oh yeah.
Eli: A nickname for Mike is Crazy Mike.

After Eli made his blanket I told him he could take it over to Mikes house. He said, "what if Ally wants to cuddle?" And the tone was more like he was saying, "I hope Ally wants to cuddle." If you remember this post you will know why Mike was glad Ally wasn't home.

Since we are on the subject of Ally here are two more instances that lead me to believe Eli has a little crush on her.

We were talking about how Eli likes oatmeal at breakfast one morning. Eli said "yeah oatmeal is likable." I said "I think you are likable." Eli said "Ally is likable too."

At dinner one night Eli really thought the waitress was cute. On the way home he was talking about the waitress so I asked him what he thought was cute about her. He said "she had cute hair and circle earrings like Ally."

For the kicker. After church today Eli asked me why church was so boring and why is it hard for kids to sit still. I wish I had an answer for that!

Ha ha! I had no idea he had such a crush on my sis and that he was such a ladies man! How cute is he?

I also tune Zack out when he starts talking about Star Wars and video games, etc. I say: uh huh, and really? also. I think all moms do it so you are not a bad one, just a normal one.

What a smart guy! I think i'll start going by Dan now that he suggested it. I think I'll also start calling Mike "Crazy Mike!"

If only Eli had a crush on me.

I can relate to the talking and feeling bad sometimes for not catching every word :). Tristan always stops midstory and says "right mommy?" or he'll ask me a question. BUSTED for daydreaming, oops...
Thats so cute that Eli has a crush :)!
Talk with ya soon! Take Care!

"why can't kids sit still in church?" is the age old question...I have an answer but I don't think saying "sometimes people give boring talks" is appropriate.
