  • Running around naked

    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…

    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?

    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

    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).

    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.

  • Barbeque

    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 […]
