This last week has been a whirlwind of Liamisms, birthday wishes, and high notes. Here’s a quick recap of the highlights!
No week is every complete without some humorous Liamisms to lighten the mood. The two that stand out most include some potty humor and a misunderstanding about the rules of driving.
“Mom, sometimes when Atticus poops his diaper looks like it has peanut butter spread in it. I just want to eat it.”
“Liam, that’s absolutely disgusting. Why would you want to eat that.”
“Well dung beetles eat poop, so why can’t I?”
“Maybe because you’re not a dung beetle for starters.”
“Mom, I’m all ready to drive the Escalade now. I have my own license plate.”
“Sweet Liam, driving doesn’t work that way. A license plate is different than a driver’s license. That’s what you need to drive a car.”
“Mom, I’m pretty sure all I need is a license plate. So you can just give me the keys.”
“Liam, why don’t we revisit this conversation in 10 years when you’re really ready to drive.”
As I walked down the stairs with Atticus in my arms and Liam at my heels ready to head out the door for work, I noticed a gift lying on the dining room table. I asked Liam about it and very nonchalantly he said, “Mom, it’s nothing. It’s just your birthday present.”
“Oh how nice! Well today’s my birthday.”
“Oh yeah, right. I forgot.”
He then preceded to carry the gift bag to the counter and disappeared. I thought he was going to turn off the light when he suddenly reappeared grunting as he made his way back carrying a wooden plant stand with a succulent. He retreated again, walking back shortly with yet another plant stand and succulent. As I opened my gifts, I loved watching him look over the countertop at me as I opened my gifts. He truly set the tone for a wonderful start to my birthday.
My 35th year is off to a great start. I’m looking forward to everything this year sends my way.
Liam and I discovered microwaveable Mug Treats on our weekly H-E-B run. Until recently, I thought no one loved dessert in our house more than Liam. After letting Atticus lick the spoon, I think Liam might have some competition for the title of Dessert King in our house. Nothing makes me happier than sweet baby smiles even when those smiles are caked with chocolate!
