Focusing on the good.

Monkey is being such a little star these days.

Let me share some funny stories, all from today:

This morning at 6 AM Monkey came into our room, crawled into bed between us and settled in for his morning cuddle.  While he was laying there I heard him quietly say the name of one of the little girls in his class.  Twice.  Then he dozed off again.  Lovestruck?

While Monkey and I were waiting for Duhdee to clear the snow off the truck this morning before school, Monkey asked to sit in the driver’s seat of the truck.  He loves to pretend to drive.  He also loves to crank the volume on the radio, turn on the blinkers, turn on the windshield washers and put the truck into 4 wheel drive, lol.  He was being very good this morning and resisted the temptation of all those buttons.  When Duhdee reached the back of the truck to clean off the rear window, however, Monkey reached out and put his finger on the button to turn on the rear windshield wiper.  If he pressed the button not only was it going to freak Dudhee out but it would probably also spray Duhdee with washer fluid.  From the way he looked at me out of the corner of his eye and grinned at me, I’m pretty sure he knew all this too, lol.  When I told him “No” he quickly found something else to do.   The grin on his face still has me chuckling though.

After school today he walked up the front steps grabbed the snow shovel and proceeded to shovel our (already cleared) sidewalk.  When he finished that chore he then tried to convince Duhdee that it was time to get out the snowblower.  Duhdee is going to be fighting Monkey for control of that machine before long!

And, finally, this afternoon Monkey was prowling in the pantry and he noticed that someone (Duhdee actually confessed to doing this!) had left the sugar bowl on the wrong shelf.  He opened the sugar bowl, licked his finger, stuck it in the suger and ate it, lol.  For some reason Duhdee let him repeat this trick at least once more before getting up and moving the bowl to a higher shelf.  Monkey then ran, grabbed his stool so he could reach the higher shelf and grabbed himself another taste of sugar.  I’ll let Duhdee try to defend allowing this since he was the primary parent at the time, lol.

Today is a good reminder of how good our lives really are.
