More Michaelisms

Michael is continuing to surprise us with what he is saying. At 3 1/2, he really says some unexpected things.

For example, he is teaching his older brothers about the proper use of can/may. Drew will ask, "Michael, can I have that?" Michael says, "Yes, you MAY" (emphasizing the word may).

After the ultrasound yesterday, Peter and Drew were thrilled at the prospect of having a sister. Michael, however, is not. He heard Andy on the phone saying, "It's a girl." To which he responded, "No, Dad, it's a boy!" Later in the day, he told his cousin, Annie, "I say the baby is a boy, but Mom and Dad say it's a girl." In one last attempt at a boy, When asked what we should name the baby, he responded, "Boy." Poor thing!

I love when little ones give their philosophy on life. The may/can thing cracks me up. I used to have students ask, Can I go to the bathroom? I'd ask (like all other teachers do lol) I don't know CAN you? lol

All my 3 boys wanted a brother when I was expecting my last. Our friends would all wish for a girl for us but the kids would tell them that they wanted a boy.

They got what they wanted... we are now the proud parents of 4 boys. The "baby" is now 18 months.
