5 on Friday

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

5.  I go to the gym early, before the boys are awake. The other day I came home and Marino was awake and waiting at the top of the steps with his arms open, wanting a hug. 

4.  Marino uses strawberry or orange toothpaste and he is obsessed with having me smell his breath to make sure it smells like fruit. Seriously, he'll come downstairs, walk up to me and say "Smelling time!" The other morning morning he told me "My toothpaste wears off by the time I get to school. One time I had my friends smell my breath and it was ew! My breath stunk! Can you believe it? "

3.  When we got to school the other day, he asked his buddy Jace "do you like my logo tee? It's like a computer logo in real life."How does he know the word "logo" or that the pixilation in the logo is indicative of a computer? 

2. Marino and I had the following conversation the other night: 
Marino:  "Mommy, how did I get in your belly?" 
Me:  "Remember, you told me. The love energy?"  
Marino:  "Mommy, don't get mad but I just made that up. I wasn't lying, but I made it up." 

1.  The other night at bedtime, Marino asked me how people get viruses. Next he asked me what a computer virus was and how computers get them. Too complex of a conversation for bedtime!

5 on Friday

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

5. At bedtime the other day, Marino asked me about turning 18 and going to college. When I told him at that age he would want to move away and do his own thing, he started sobbing! "I don't want to leave you. Don't force me! I want to do my own thing and be here! I want to be with you every single day for another 100 years!" I calmed him down. A few minutes later he said "Mommy, I'm starting to cry again. But these are happy tears because I just love you so much!" 

4.  It's impossible to take yourself seriously when you're a mom. The other day, Marino announced, "Mommy, I'm smarter than you. Everything you say that's interesting, I already know."

3.  Marino had his last basketball game of the season last week. His buddy Sydney slept over the night before, so she came to the game with us. He kept looking at her all during the game and at half time, he ran over to her and said "Did you like that, Sydney?" 

2.  Marino was asking me for something the other day and I said, "Well, do you have any money?" He replied, "Does it look like I've got any money in these pockets?"

1.  Marino asked me to tape him and this is what he did...this boy is the biggest ham in the world!
