Today I was organizing a new file drawer (yay for preschool!) when I came across the yellow tablet I was using right after Genoa was born. I had put it aside to save my notes about the hospital, my log of labor contractions and several pages of right boob/left boob nursing times. I actually DO keep that stuff since it's something I want to remember.
Even more memorable, but something I had already forgotten, was a quote I'd written down so I wouldn't forget to blog it. Alex's first lie:
Dave: How did the tape come off the couch? (our leather sofa has a rip in it that I've taped shut until I can find a leather repair kit. The boy knows that touching the tape is VERBOTEN!)
Alex: A pinsquito* came in and bite-ed it off!
*pinsquito is Alex-code for mosquito. Nice try buddy.
I also found a note I wrote just last weekend. We were leaving the park and Dave had just finished scolding Alex for not cooperating while he was attempting to put him in his car seat while standing on a busy street.
Dave: I love you, Big Boy.
Alex: DON'T SAY THAT.
Dave: Why not?
Alex: Because it's not true.
He's not even THREE yet. We are SO in for it.
