Our children's behaviors of late have been really entertaining:
1) Maggie is the eloquent one. She has begun to tell me things like, "That horse looks interesting. I think that horses are very interesting to me." She has started using big words. She told me yesterday, "Bugs are just so irritating." And last week when we were on the freeway she said, "Mom, be careful. Dad always drives on the rumble strip."
2) Coleman is the reminder. If I tell the kids something like, "When we go into the store there will be no tantrums, no fits, no crying" then Coleman will wag his finger at his siblings and say "NO FITS, MAGGIE AND WILL. NO CRYING." He also takes it upon himself to be the enforcer by pinching his siblings for violating protocol. This is a problem but its also kind of funny.
3) Willy is the emotional one. He gives me kisses all day and tells me he loves me. He uses the phrase, "That's very scary to me" at least 12 times a day. He laughs a lot and always follows with "That's so funny!" The other night he started laughing and the laugh just got louder and crazier and at the end he said "That. was. a. BIG. laugh!"
