Of course he cracks us up on a regular basis too. A few days ago he came up to my room, where I was reading on the loveseat next to our bed, where he often comes in the middle of the night to sleep. (I think the best thing we ever did was to get that loveseat because now instead of waking us and wanting in bed with us, he just climbs onto the loveseat which is piled up with pillows and soft blankets, and we never even know he's there until morning.)
Anyway, it was mid-afternoon and I had just put the two year old down for a nap. The five year old never takes naps. But that day he came upstairs and said, "Can you please get off my 'nuther bed? Sleep in your own bed." So I moved into my bed so he could have the loveseat. I figured I'd be a good example and hopefully he'd take a nap. After I moved, he climbed up and snuggled in with his minion, which I hadn't noticed before, and triumphantly exclaims, "There's room for you, Minion!" Ugh. I got kicked out for a minion. Lol. Guess I know where I rank. Not to mention the fact that the Minion couldn't sleep on the loveseat - or so he told me a few (a very few) minutes later, so they both had to climb into the big bed with me. My life is never boring - ha.
Since he started taking a bath every morning, the five year old has been motivated to take one every evening. They don't bathe together. The five year old is constantly telling me, "we have to wait our turn." And in his mind, when it's time for his bath, it's not his brother's turn - and vice versa. I'm just glad he wants to get in. He was terrified of bathing for a long time, and he's just getting comfortable with the idea again. He has been initiating it too, telling me as soon as dinner is over that he needs to take a bath. Big steps. :)
We nearly had a disaster a couple weeks ago. My husband twisted his ankle (he missed the bottom step in the middle of the night). It swelled up pretty bad and stayed that way for about a week. Unfortunately he was on his way to work, and ended up being on his feet for 22 hours with no time to prop it up.
