5 on Friday

As always, here are 5 special reasons I am loving my boy this week:

5. We visited our friends in NJ last week and we went to see a movie. Marino said to the cashier at the theater, "You look like Tony Stark." (Tony Stark is Iron Man, if you're not familiar). The cashier said that is the look he was going for.

4. The other morning, at 4am, Marino woke me up to inform me that his new stuffed Green Lantern watches over him and keeps him safe at night (seriously, he woke me up just to tell me that and then went back to bed). The other night he told me he couldn't sleep because he is afraid of the dark. I asked him what happened to Green Lantern watching over him and he said, "Sometimes Green Lantern is afraid of the dark. And now is a sometime."

3. The other day, Marino came home from school with half of his lunch uneaten. I asked him why he didn't eat it all. He said "I didn't have time. I was practicing using my voice."

2. Marino has decided he loves babies and wants a baby sister. The other day he announced, "Mommy, I want you to have a baby sister in your belly. A sister that will live with me. Her name will be Gabriella."

1. On our road trip last week, Marino and I were listening to NPR. He heard the word "mention" and asked me what it means. I explained it to him and 30 minutes later he said, "Mommy, did I mention I want to stop at Old McDonald's?"

5 on Friday...errr..Monday (with video)

As always, here are 5 special reasons I am loving my boy this week:

5. We went to a concert the other day and Marino asked for a balloon dog. After he got it, he snuggled it like it was a puppy. Very cute!

Playing "dog friends" with his buddy Jace.

4.  Speaking of the concert, check out Marino dancing at the concert. This boy has way too much energy! 

3. The other day on our Metro adventure, Marino sat in front of an ad for makeup, featuring 2 women.  Marino looked at it and said, "Mommy, there's two girls in that picture. But if there were three, then it would be perfect!"

2. Marino is still the snuggliest boy ever. Whenever I'm putting him to bed, he asks me "Can I sleep with my face under your face?" Its not possible for us to sleep too close for him!

1. Reading a book with Marino is always interesting. He is always relaying his stream of consciousness. Some gems while reading Animal Boogie the other night..."Whoa, whoa. That kid is going to get himself killed standing next to a leopard's claws."   "Mommy, I can see that girl's buns."
