How funky is your chicken?

Wednesday, June 29th, 2005

Evan came up with the strangest phrase today, when he came home from kindy. He’d say:

How funky is your chicken?

We’re not sure what it means, but we believe it came from one of his teachers…

Just did an internet search on it and turns out it’s a song! From the Jackson 5! Wild!

You’re a good Daddy

Monday, June 27th, 2005

I like to praise Evan when he does things well, so I’ll say afterwards “You’re a good boy Evan.” but the other day, Evan says to me “You’re a good Daddy.” I’m chuffed.

Madagascar

Sunday, June 26th, 2005

Evan went to his first movie ever today – Madagascar. It was quite good, but maybe a bit much for Evan. Half-way through the movie, Evan said “I want to go,” but I convinced him to stay until the end. He wasn’t paying much attention near the end. Interesting, since he’ll easily sit and watch Monsters Inc. or Toy Story for the full 1.5 hours. Nevertheless, it was a good experience and I’m sure Evan will want to go again in the near future.

Thank-you

Evan’s very cute – out of nowhere, at the dinner table, Evan will say “Thank-you for dinner Mummy!”. Such a cutie!

Postman

Tuesday, June 21st, 2005

We played postman today when we delivered the invitations to Lauren’s first birthday to around 7 houses. Evan said “When I’m older I want to be a postman.”

Bathroom shower

Friday, June 17th, 2005

Nicole left Evan in the shower this morning because he wanted to stay a bit longer, while she tended to Lauren downstairs. When she got back upstairs, there was water leaking onto the carpet in the hallway, and when she opened the bathroom door, there was Evan in the middle of the bathroom, outside the shower, spraying the walls with water! He knows he’s supposed to keep the water in the shower, but for some reason he experimented today. I can’t be mad with him, since I just got home and I’ve got pressies for him, but there’s a lot of water on the carpets. Not good.

He knew he was naughty and kept repeating to Nicole “Don’t tell Daddy!”…
