This face is so sweet

This little one has been a booger lately. Then suddenly on Monday he is his old self again.

A friend of mine called me today to tell me that her youngest, 4, twisted and broke her finger. I told her that was crazy because baby boy was out of character the last couple of weeks.

She told me that she had heard that 4 year olds get a surge of testosterone during their major growth spurt. I looked it up and found the article. It all makes sense now!

Today he has been a jewel. He won't stop loving on me. He told me he loved me probably thirty times. He kissed. He told me I was the best mommy in the world. He did what he was asked and was sweet to his sister.

His affection is making baby girl affectionate too. They were arguing over who could give me the most cuddles.

He made me laugh today because I let them watch Superman for the first time. I said something like I hoped Superman would save me one day. He grabbed my face and said, "Mommy, how many times do I have to tell you...HE IS NOT REAL!"

Funny. We watched Superman yesterday too. Cash was glued to the TV, he just loves superheroes.

I hope the affectionate spell lasts and the other one is over for the time being.

Love the Superman statement!
