1) “Dear Lord Jesus, PLEASE deal with this naughty boy…” says Cooper, while laying his hand on Gage’s shoulder after Gage ‘disobeyed’ Cooper and messed with his muddy-water bucket.
2) “Mama, wanna hear a song and see a dance?” (me – “Of Course!”) … “Okay… Big wheels can do BIG THINGS! Big wheels can do BIG THINGS! (over and over… until…) Big Wheels can do big things… when they are on TRUCKS!” A Cooper Leroy original, and the dance, of toe tapping and hand gestures, went along nicely with the tune. And the hat made it that much better.
5) “Dear Lord Jesus, please help me not to do the bad things I do, and to not do the bad things I usually do… and please don’t let Tato get stuck down in the basement where a monster might get him and Daddy would have to rescue him…” Cooper’s bedtime prayer… the ‘bad things’ is repeated every-night, but the basement thing, that was new.
Have a great Tuesday!
