Andrew Says the Darndest Things*
Apparently being a two and a half year old boy makes you silly, loving and defiant all at the same time.
Today he was mostly silly:
At swimming lessons he was swimming next to a little girl who was scared of the water. She was crying a little, and I noticed Andrew was right up in her face saying something, but it was anyone's guess what he was sharing with her.
So when I went in to get him after the lesson he was sitting on his teacher's lap and he didn't seem in any hurry to get out of the pool. It turns out Andrew had been entertaining everyone during his lesson and was still soaking up the attention.
While the little girl was upset Andrew had serenaded her with Bob Marley:
Don't worry about a thing. Every little thing is gonna be alright.
And he shared Sweet Caroline with them all too, loud and clear.
It's a shame he's so shy and scared to come of out his shell. :)
He also likes to point out really obvious stuff to us:
"Did you see that puzzle with the dog?"
Ummm...the one that you've put together 50 times over the last week? Yes, I've seen it once or twice.
He asks the same way every time..."Did you see that?". I bet he thinks he's more observant than we are. And he's probably right.
*This could totally turn in to a weekly segment. But I'll try to restrain myself. Has your kiddo done something really silly or surprisingly wonderful lately?
