I'm at my sister's house taking care of her kids while she and her hubby are livin' it up in Mexico. I've got to document a couple of funny things that Cooper has said so that I don't forget. He's a funny kid!
*On our way to his blastball game yesterday, I told him that he was cute. He said, "It's 'cause I've got my awesome Mudcats clothes on!"
*I gave them all notes from their mom, and his was signed something like, "I love you Baby, Mommy". And he said, "Why'd she call me 'baby'?" I said, "Because you ARE her baby." "No I'm not." "You'll ALWAYS be her baby!" And he said, "SHE thinks that!" =)
*Yesterday he said, "I've never taken care of myself before." I said, "Oh, you don't have to take care of yourself, I'll take care of you." He said, "I don't like it when people take care of me." Last night when I was putting him down for the night, I said, "Thanks for letting me take care of you." (not thinking of our earlier conversation) And he said, "Remember, I'm taking care of myself."
I'm very thankful that I am able to "take care" of my pseudo-kids. It's interesting overseeing five, but we're making it (although I don't know HOW we would have last night without Emily and Allan!!!)! I love my niece and nephews very much!!! =)
