He's totally into having me take pictures of random things at random places. A cake at Target that he just knows I will forget about by the time his birthday rolls around next April. A toy he might have his eye on. A car that looks like the gazillion cars he already owns but he tells me he just wants to remember it.

I get that.

It's why at any given time my planner and my purse or my diaper bag have random little notes of quotes or things that happened that I just don't want to forget, I just want to remember. It's why I snap pictures of random moments and glimpses of our day.

I want to remember 10 years or maybe even 3 years that when he was five years old he was obsessed with wearing jeans. And a character shirt. And the day he walked outside in his black dress shoes and explained that since his Boppa wears dress shoes with his jeans, so does he.

Here's some of the other sweet conversations my H and I have had lately:

Me: {After giving H a buzz-haircut.} Man, you're so handsome. How'd you get so handsome?
Him: Well you gave me the haircut, but God made me.

Him: I don't ever want to go to college. I want to live with you forever.
Me: {Not wanting him to give up on college at the old age of 5.} Well, maybe you can go to college where you live at home and go to school during the day and come home at night.
Him: No. I want to stay here. Forever.
Me: Well, maybe you'll change your mind.
Him: If I change my mind, will you remind me that I don't want to go to college?

M convinced me to buy some Nutella recently and since I didn't really know or understand what it is {dessert!} I allowed her to make herself and H a sandwich with it for lunch on Tuesday.
Him: "Mama, thank you for this most delicious lunch! It takes just like chocolate!

Somedays I'm still shocked and surprised at the gift motherhood and having him has been to me. I'm so glad I'm his mom.

{Over on Patch this week I wrote about conversations with our kids about stranger danger and safety. You can check that out right here. It's my 119th article over there. Whew!}

I love hearing the things kids say! His haircut response was my favorite!! I'm sure he doesn't even miss a beat!

You got to love the imagination. Always thinking.

Love to all!

How cute! I love the one about him wearing the same shoes with his jeans as his Boppa. How adorable!

Oh H, he is too funny! I used to say that to my parents too - how I never wanted to leave their house and when I grew up and got married I'd live there forever still - things changed of course when I actually grew up!
