      I saw him outside (in the backyard) playing and wondered why he was in his underwear. I just figured he was being Nicholas. Little did I know he had NO CLUE he was only wear underwear.

    My son would have thought that outfit looked pretty cool at that age!

    It was about that time that he needed to put trousers on with no underwear- possibly he’d been paddling in his pants (underwear- British!) and they’d got wet, but whatever the reason he was not happy about it.
    I reassured him and said he could just go commando.
    “But I don’t WANT to be a tomato!!”
    Nearly 10 years later, it’s still ‘going tomato’ in our house.

      He is really good with numbers. Memorizing them, adding/subtracting, etc. Since I happen to think people who can think with numbers are exceptionally creative, I think you’re right. :)

      That outfit he is wearing was for playing football. He came rushing out the door screaming, “I’m ready! I’m ready!” and joined my stunned husband and Mikey.

    Love those boys of yours!

    “Kicks like thunder” . . . so literary! And “the letter Y is impossible,” LOVE! Now that he mentions it, it could also be applied to the question why. It’s a question I’ve mulled on more than one occasion the last couple years. Now I’m just gonna say, “the letter Y is impossible,” roll my eyes, and move on . . .
