5 on Friday

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

5.  Marino informed me the other day the he wants to be a teacher when he grows up, so he can "tell kids what to do all day." He also informed me he plans to have a son, who he will name Simba.

4.  We went to the Memorial Day parade in Rockville on Monday. This is an election year, here, so all the politicians were in the parade. These two were yelling "bring on the candy!" Marino was very impressed with the marching bands and has decided he wants to be a drummer.

3.  We had a cookout with Evan's family and friends over the weekend. The cousins had a blast together, as always. Marino asked me if Raiden would be there and I said, "Yes, and Jahvon, too." "Uh, yeah, Mommy, it's Jahvon's house," he said.

2. On Saturday, we went to Hometown Holidays with our cousin, Landyn. Those two have a blast together, going on rides, eating treats and running around. They made a new friend and spent almost an hour playing a tackle version of tag with the new buddy. Marino told me that was his favorite part of the long weekend.

1. Yesterday, I had to bring Marino with me to my job quickly. We were setting up in the hearing room and he asked one of the attorneys, "Have you seen the Justice League? This is like the Hall of Justice."

5 on Friday

As always, here are 5 special reasons I am loving my boy this week (and last week, I'm behind!). 

5.  Marino's school had a playdate the other day and Marino had the genius idea to have these building blocks built around him and then smash his way out like the Hulk. This happened about 5 more times. He loved it! 

4.  The other day I said, "Marino, you look so grown up today.  It makes me sad." 
He asked why.  I told him, "I just want you to be my baby forever." 
He said, "Mommy, look at me. Does this look like baby size to you? I'm already a big boy." 

3. I took Marino with me to the hairdresser last week so he could get his hair cut, too. As soon as we walked in, I said, "Marino, you remember Miss Ashley, right?" He said,"Yeah, you look thin." I have idea why he said that, since we rarely discuss weight at all (he knows "fat" is a bad word and won't say it). She told him he could come back anytime!  

Then the other day he said, "Mommy, if I workout with you, will I be the same size as you?"
"What size is that?" I asked. "You know, not skinny," he said.  

2.  Evan took Marino fishing yesterday and instead of a fish, he caught a huge frog! 

1.  We had 2 birthday parties to go to last weekend. A few days later, Marino said about his friend, "I really hope Dylan had the best birthday ever. I didn't tell him that, but I hope he did." Later he said, "I just really hope Dylan and Ike enjoy the presents we got them."
