Mr Q: in his own words


mommy
you're the cutest girl in the whole world
(sigh)

(singing
to the tune of 'wheels on the bus')
cleaning up your room is cool & nice
cool & nice
cool & nice
cleaning up your room is cool & nice
cool & nice
(thank you jesus for giving me
a child unlike myself...)

i think we need to take merra back
& get a nice sister
(pause)
i'm just kidding you!
(true she is not always kind
but so glad he was kidding:)

you know,
some people in this city
don't have pets...
(yes sweetie
& you are one of them...)

(watching clifford
the one where the kids talk about
what they want to be when they grow up
& charlie says he wants to be a karate teacher
& jetta says that he can't be a karate teacher
tsk
that jetta...)
Q: or you can teach kids how to read, like daddy does

me: that's true. is that what you would like
to do when you grow up?

Q: no, i think i would like
to go in to really messy rooms
& vacuum them all up
i think that would be really fun
(dear son, let me introduce you to your parents room...
let's call it an internship, shall we?)

golly
i love that kid...

:)

ps
i saw juno last night
two words:
see
it

more later...

Are you sure he is from our family??? That is the cutest thing...considering his love of the garbage truck...I think we have a garbage man in the making!

PS...I think you wanted to give me back several times! Genetic for sure...tell M it will be better in about 20 years!

Oh, you are a lucky one. Do you think he could impart some of his gifts in Mia's direction? I love that you thinks you are the cutest girl in the world. So sweet!

Are you kidding me??? What a sweet, endearing boy! Such beautiful, adorable things he comes up with. But if I had to throw them all away but one I'd keep that first one forever. Awww, now my ♡'s all woozy.
