How to Charm Me

Tell me Henry “is soooooo cute, Mom. I want us to have another baby in our family.”

And then, a few days later, tell me that when you are a “big man” you want to “get married when Henry gets married, so you can always live together.”

–William, age FOUR IN JUST SIX DAYS as he would tell you

These little gems tide me over when I hear the usual din, like, “Moooooooom, Henry isn’t sharing!” and “Moooooooom! Henry pulled my hair!”

    Yep, that would charm the socks off me. Are you sure about stopping at 2, Mom??? Nadia’s been all about a baby sister lately…telling me I need to go tell ask doctor to put one in my belly (shhh, don’t tell her otherwise!). *sigh*

    How sweet. He’s got me won over! Good thing the sweetness comes out to over rule the no sharing times!

    Ah, he is charming with a capital C!! I think having same sex children is the best thing in the world. When they love each other, they LOVE each other. (Of course the same is true when they are not in “like” with each other, too!)

    Loving brothers come from loving parents. You are doing an amazing job raising two wonderful boys.

  8. Karen Says:

    What a sweetie! Your boys are so lucky to have each other (and you!).

    Will might be on to something…I think you should definitely have another baby in your family!

    Oh, so cute! He is just too sweet about his baby brother, but I’m sure not all the time. 😉 At least you get those moments…I NEVER hear that over here.
