Nutty Berry

This is our friend "Nutty Berry." G-Money named him last summer when he started coming around. I know it seems stupid to blog about this creature...I mean, REALLY. I shouldn't even give him the attention he so craves.

We came home from the store one day and found a little hole nibbled out of G's pumpkin. Well, we caught him. He is UNASHAMED. Needless to say, the pumpkin is completely gone now and we have one fat squirrel hanging out in our tree. He's begs and "talks" to me when I come outside. It's hard to ignore him, but I'm afraid he'll invite himself in if I give him too much attention.

Seriously, the squirrels out here are a different breed.

Out of the mouths...

G: "Mommy, do you know what a 'sophia' is?"
E: "Do you mean the girl's name, like mommy's jewelry?"
G: "No...a SPEARA."
E: "I'm sorry, I don't understand what you are saying."
G: more emphatically: "A SPEARA"
E: completely confused: "No. I don't know what that is. What is a Speara?"
G: "A ball."
E: ?!? realization: "OH...a Sphere. Where did you learn about that?!"
G: "From school."

PreK isn't what it used to be, folks.

G: "Mommy, I think I'm going to pull for two teams. The Gamecocks AND Georgia."
E: "WHAT?! Why, sweetie?"
G: "Because I'm a George."

I guess that makes sense when you are four.

"I think I'd like a bite of that, G."

"He left me!"

She knows how to work them, doesn't she?!

G-Money is in School!!

Two posts in one week...i know you are impressed. :)

G-Money started PreK this fall. He was so excited to go and has grown up SO MUCH in the last few months. It's amazing, and I'm so proud of how well he is doing. Parent-teacher conferences are next week, so we'll see how things are really going, but so far, so good.
