Running around naked

Friday, May 19th, 2006

Evan said “When I get home I want to run around naked.” I guess he really enjoyed his running around naked with Zen.

When asked why, he said “because it’s not allowed!”

Very, very, very, very…

Friday, May 19th, 2006

Evan likes to make big sentences like:

“I’m very, very,  very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very,  hungry”

He’ll say that about lots of things, like being tired, hungry, hot etc.

Which is faster?

Friday, May 19th, 2006

Evan loves to compare everything to a Shinkansen, particularly if Nicole’s dropped me off at the station.

He’ll say “Mummy, which is faster? A police car or a shinkansen?” “A motorcycle or a shinkansen?”

I spy

Friday, May 19th, 2006

Evan likes to play “I spy” now, and we feel it’s good for his spelling practice. Sometimes he’ll say things that aren’t even in the room, like something that’s downstairs or something.

He’ll also start with sounds like “SP” for Spaetzle.

If we can’t guess it, he’ll give us clues, like “it crawls” (for turtle).

Butterfly police

Friday, May 19th, 2006

Evan was wearing the play butterfly wings (mostly meant for Lauren) and spontaneously said:

“I’m going to put you in jail, because I’m the butterfly… police!”

Have I been good?

Friday, May 19th, 2006

Evan was quite a sweetie today and said a few cute things. Nicole and the kids were walking home and Evan said:

“Mummy, have I been good today?”

“Yes Evan, you’ve been a good boy today.”

“I said please, and I said thank-you.”

Stop crying

Monday, May 8th, 2006

Lauren was crying and annoying Evan a bit, so he said:

“Lauren, stop crying or I won’t be your brother any more.”

It didn’t help.

Evan noticed that Nicole was wearing a skirt and he said:

“Mummy, you’re wearing a skirt! Is that Grandma’s?”

We bought a barbeque (and deck set) this weekend, and Evan’s been crazy for barbeques since. He’s been ill these last few days, even throwing up in D2, but that hasn’t stopped him from asking for the barbeque all the time.

The barbeque we bought is the traditional round one, like a kettle and uses charcoals. It meant we could roast marshmallows over the embers after dinner, which was fun.

Evan can now do up his own seatbelt, and is proud to do it when we tell him to.
