Father May You

Me: [Shakes keys]
Ellis: Dad, can you stop that?
Me: I can...
Ellis: May you stop that?

Tonight, while tucking him in, Gordon told me, "I think that I am part monkey. I can squeeze very tightly with my arms and my legs. I'm only missing the tail and the fur."

I told him that he gets his "Monkey-ness" from his dad's side of the family.

We are watching "Where the Wild Things Are". When Max runs away, Gordon looks at me and said, "That must have been terrible for his mom."

Favorite Ending

Gordon said, "They say the world will end in five billion years. That's really sad because that's my favorite number."

Gordon is memorizing the US Presidents and was practicing them in a little song before he went to bed last night. Ellis listened intently as Gordon was singing them. When he finished, Ellis said, "I like how they included Garfield."
