Working on his Ws and Ls

Yesterday, after work, I was sitting out on the back deck, enjoying my recently installed AirTunes setup (streaming music, wirelessly, from the computer upstairs to the speakers I mounted on the wall of our house, controlled, wirelessly, by my iPhone) when Benjamin slid open the patio door, and toddled out with one of my shoes in his hands — a shoe nearly half his height.
He proceeds to pull my slipper off my right foot, and hang my left shoe off my big toe, and then walks away (closing the patio door behind him for once.) A few minutes later, he comes back out with the other shoe, and once again pulls off my slipper and carefully tries his very best to put the shoe on my left foot.
When he’s done, he gets up from his squat, inspects his work with pride, smiles up at me and says:
Of course, I couldn’t possibly say no to all that effort, so we went for a walk.

  1. Ah yeah! Good stuff man. Kaeden has also picked up the ‘walk’ word, though I think it’s actually code for ‘rock’ which he is convinced is one of the finest aspects of creation. He loves playing outside, usually on hills. He can run up, throw and rock (or ball) down and repeat the process until Nic or I pass out. Good stuff.
    Glad you four are in the house and settling down. I would love to chill out in the hot tub with you…sigh. (I am convinced that Hot Tubs are one of the finest aspects of creation). Plus it would be great to catch up with you (now that life has slowed down a little).
    I just went back and read two months worth of your blogs so I feel like I’m caught up!
    Blessings mate,

  2. That is just way too cute!!! Doesn’t it melt your heart when they do things like that?! It makes parenting all worth it!!
