So, it seems that my little sunshine comes up with something new each week to entertain/amaze/exasperate me. Here's the latest....
Yesterday, as we were leaving for school/work, James really, really, really wanted my Kakui (sp?) Nut necklace that Wana brought me from Hawaii. Well, the one I had on matched my outfit and really pulled it together, so he wasn't getting that one. But, I also have another, shorter Kakui Nut necklace. So, in a effort to coax James into the car so we could get out of the house in a somewhat timely fashion, I grabbed the extra necklace and put it around his neck. He was SO THRILLED! He was still wearing it when we got to school, so I just went with it (he was wearing a hawaiian-looking shirt, so it totally matched the outfit!) When I picked him up from preschool, his teachers said that he proudly wore his necklace the entire day! They had to take it off during naptime, but he wanted it right back when he saw it later that day.
And today, I kept him home from preschool due to some pretty bad allergy symptoms (the pollen count here in FL is RIDICULOUS!) He eyed some old Gasparilla beads on our bookshelf and once again, demanded his necklace.
What? You lookin' at me?
Don't you know that real men wear beads with their big bellies?
