A change of pace

Wyatt spent three days last week in the country with Nannie and I got to have some great one on one time with Stacey. We had a blast but he sure missed his brother. Since I feel like some of the most common phrases that I say during a normal day at our house (as well as other more long winded speeches that I'll spare you) include:
  • Get off him.
  • We do not hit!
  • Would you like to be treated like that?
  • Are you being kind to your brother?
  • You have to take turns!
  • It's his turn!
  • You'll have a turn in a minute!
  • No that is not "yours"
  • Gentle!
  • Your head is not a weapon!
  • GET OFF OF HIM!
So, in the absence of the referee role I usually get to play it was nice to hear III saying things like:
  • I sure do miss Wyatt.
  • Maybe we can do this again and Wyatt can come.
  • Do you think Wyatt is home yet?
  • I sure wish Wyatt could be here.
  • When is Wyatt going to be home?
Boys, they really do love each other.

Hilarious and precious! How great for you and III. I can't tell you how similar our vocabulary is on a daily basis. Can you imagine having 4 boys? Crazy! Love the carwash...Brooks loves to do that too! Cheap fun entertainment.

It's good to know someone else says those same things every day! Granted one of mine is a girl, but she sure is TOUGH!
