Beauty and the Beast

Jack has taken to saying "I love you" a lot. He'll say "momma?" and I'll say "yes love?" and he says "I love you". Just like that, very matter-of-fact.  He does the same to Craig. Yesterday in the kitchen, Craig scooped him up for a hug and he patted his dad on the back and said "this makes me so happy".  Craig looked at me and I could tell on his face that his heart just swelled up like a balloon. As you can imagine, both Craig and I want this stage of Jack's life to last forever. He's so sweet and funny and imaginative. 

Danny, on the other hand, is a little terror. He'll walk around with his sippy-cup then he'll stop and take a big swig, lean back and go "arggh!" like he's a 30 year old man that just had a cold beer after mowing the lawn. God help you if you take away a toy or remove him from doing something, or take him out of the bath, because he'll fight you like a gladiator. And he picks the most dangerous thing in the house and plays with it. Last week I caught him chewing my laptop cable, while it was plugged in

Your boys sound lovely and I expect you and Craig wonder how they can be such different characters. A

He's the Reason We Can't Have Nice Things

I say this line a lot to Craig - When the cats barf on the bed "We can never have nice things" When Ben poos on the basement car...
