This afternoon we were all hanging out in Logan's room, Madeline was reading books, I was being lazy on his bed, and Scott and Logan were showing off their wrestling moves.
Logan rolled over close to me and gave me an up close look at his nose, I said jokingly, "ooh, you have a bugger in your nose" and this was the conversation that followed...
Logan: "daddy, are there any jelly beans in my ear?"
Scott checked and pretended to eat one (because there were no beans any where)Daddy: "sorry Logan, there aren't any more"
Logan walks over to the bed and asks...quite seriously I might add...Logan: :"mommy, when are they going to grow?"
I tried very hard to contain my laughter, he was genuinely asking when his ears were going to grow jelly beans :) he just didn't quite understand that it was all a fun game, I love the innocence of little children.
On a side note, Scott came back last night from another month of training out of state, this has made him gone for pretty much most of the summer. We've had little breaks here and there (a weekend or a week and a half) in between different training events, but it's given me an idea of what deployments might look like. Thanks to the Irene he came home a day early, it's not much but I was in heaven having him home. I still am, we are having a great time hanging out and the kids could not be having a better time playing with him.
Anyway, I had to share this story of Logan, but now it's back to the fam and out starting the bbq.
