5 on Friday

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

5. The other day, Marino asked "Mommy, can you come over here and snuggle with me?" When I came over for snuggles I said, "Aw, you love Mommy! I'm the best Mommy, right?"  He said "Mommy, if you get me a snack, then I will call you that."

4.  Marino has been asking for an umbrella, so I finally got him one (Spider-Man).  He was more excited about this gift than anything I've given him before.  Every day he says "Mommy, I love my umbrella. I can't believe you got this for me. You're the best!" He then said, "Mommy, can you make it rain so I can use this?" I told him no and he said, "Why? You're not a scientist?"

3. At bedtime the other night, Marino said, "Mommy, you're like my life-sized stuffed animal."

2.  The other day I got out of the shower and Marino sniffed me.  He said, "Mommy, you smell like ice cream mixed with grossness."

1.  I go to physical therapy to try and stop some of the inflammation in my neck and shoulders that my neurologist thinks contributes to my migraines.  Marino goes with me sometimes if I have an early morning appointment.  The other day we drove by the PT office while Marino's cousin, Landyn, was with us. "There's the physical therapy building," said Marino.  "That's where I go and watch tv and my mommy lays down and her friend Amy hurts her." I get deep tissue massages there and they often are painful; Amy and I had a good laugh when I told her this story.

One more! In the car the other day, Marino was drawing on his Doodle Pro. "Look, I drew a polar bear wearing the cone of shame" he said!

5 on Friday

I've been so neglectful of the blog...I just can't keep up with blogging about everything anymore.  However, I do want to keep up with the funny moments as best I can, so after a long absence, here is a new list of 5 reasons I am loving my boy this week: 

5.  The other day Marino asked, "Mommy, did you marry Daddy so that I would be gorgeous?"
Me:  "Why, do you think Daddy is gorgeous?"
Marino:  "Well, maybe he was when you married him."

4.  We went to a birthday party at Croydon Creek Nature Center last weekend (very cool).  Some gems from Marino while we were there...

Croydon Creek Staffer:   "Can anyone tell me a kind of reptile?"
Marino:  "A T-Rex!"

Croydon Creek Staffer, brings out a turtle:  "This is Daisy."
Marino:  "Oh, that's the girl turtle that really likes me. No, seriously, she likes me."

Croydon Creek Staffer:  "Ok, I have one more animal to bring out that you can touch."
Marino:  "Please be a snake, please be a snake."

3.  Last week, Marino read his first entire book!  It took 2 days and was not easy, but he did it!  However, this seems to have gone to his head.  Over the weekend, Marino announced to Evan and I that he is the smartest person in our house. "Remember, I read a whole book last week? Hello, smartest one in the house here."

2.  The other day, Max was having a seizure.  Marino was very sweet and comforting him.  He said "It's ok, Max, just calm down. Let your brain reload."

1. Marino came with me to physical therapy yesterday. He asked the therapist,"Can you scoot my chair closer to my mommy so she won't feel alone?"
