My 4 year old

Don\'t leave me in here forever!

My 4 year old had a few nuggets today.

First, my wife took him to an out of town birthday party for a friend of his that used to live here.  When he got back after being away several hours, he walked right in and handed me a bag of candy from the party.  He said, “Here you go, daddy.  I want you to have this.  You deserve it.”  Isn’t that awesome??

Secondly, on the way home from the party, he was his normal happy self.  Then, all of a sudden, he must have gotten tired because he said to my wife, “Good night, mom”.  She looked back and he was asleep immediately after saying that!

Lastly, this evening I took the boys over to my aunt and uncle’s lake house north of Aubrey.  After announcing to the family that he needed to go poo-poo, he exited stage left to do his business.  After he was in there for a few minutes, I wondered back there to check on him.  I asked him if he was ok, if he needed any help, if he had cleaned up good, if he had washed his hands.  Yes, no, yes, yes were his responses.  As I started to walk away, I heard “WELL DON’T LEAVE ME IN HERE FOREVER!!”.  I turned back and asked him why he didn’t just turn the doorknob and come out and he said “I washed my hands and their wet” (as in duh, daddy, can’t you see that my hands are wet and I can’t turn the knob).
