Mom: What? Where did you learn that?
Ethan: IS that your happy face or your angry face?"
Mom: This is my happy face!
However, when he is acting up or when things are going crazy around here he always stops to ask me if that is my happy face or angry face. I tell him it is my 'I need a drink' face.

Ethan: OOOOhhhhhh, Mom you are in trouble! Dad is going to put you in time out.
Mom: Why am I in trouble?
Ethan: Look at this mess!! (while holding both hands in the air) You didn't make your bed.
Mom: Yup, Dad will have to put me in timeout but it will probably end up being more of a punishment for him with you crazy kids.

I want to know how come a man running for office never gets asked how his job will affect his role as a father or vice versa. However, once a woman starts running for office, people question whether she can do both. The last time I checked woman have been incorporating both roles successfully for sometime now. Or is it that a man can immerse himself into his job more because he knows the mother of his children is there to pick up all the pieces including the “little job” of raising the children. Why does the fact that you know how to reproduce have such a bearing on whether or not you can do your job?

This weekend Eric and I just couldn’t stop talking about how big Ethan is getting. He is so funny and constantly keeps us on our toes with some of his questions. He loves telling knock knock jokes and playing freeze tag. His big thing is watching other kids ride their skateboards. He wants one really bad but I just can’t stomach my daredevil child on one. Every time we go to the store he likes to go check out all the skateboards and stand on them. If you ask him when he can get one, he will reply with “when I am four” while holding up his fingers. That is also his answer on when he can play soccer. We pass soccer fields all the time on the way home and he really wants to play but he is still too young. We found out that here he can play once he is three which should be fun. He will go up to Gracie and tell her to watch him as he makes a slam dunk or makes a big jump. She of course thinks the world of him and loves being his audience. He is such a good eater and will try anything once but really likes pizza and cheeseburgers. He enjoys spicy things just as much as Eric and I do. He is at the age where he wants to hang out in his room more than the living room. It may be due to the majority of his toys are in their now that Gracie is roaming for objects to put in her mouth. He is in the phase of building new things with his toys and thinking up new ways to play with him. He has a great imagination. When he turned two I thought temper tantrums were forever but he has started to understand that if he just talks to us and explains why he is upset, we can either find an alternative or explain why we said no. Thankfully they are few and far between now. Him recognizing the time out timer usually whips him back into shape. Other than that he can always bring a smile to my face. When we were at the doctor’s office for Gracie the waiting room was full of little girls his age. Ethan was just dancing away and showing off his moves. It was so funny and he enjoyed all of their attention. My little showoff!
