Elijah starts Kindergarten

Elijah started Kindergarten this year and back in September during his first week of school he told his teacher something I couldn't believe. He got off the bus and I asked him how his day was:

Elijah: Good. My teacher told me she's going to have to talk to the nurse about me.

Me: What? Why?

Elijah: Well, she told us to take out our folders and I didn't hear her. So she said Elijah I asked you 3 times to take out your folder. I said I'm sorry but I suffer from short term memory loss.

Me: What? Why would you say that? What did she say?

Elijah: She said she will have to talk to the nurse about my short term memory loss.

Me: Great. This is going to be a fun year :)

Every night when daddy gets home from work he asks Eli about his day and one night this was thier conversation:

Daddy: Eli, how was your day?

Eli: Good, how was your day, daddy?

Daddy: Bad.

Eli: Oh, why? Because your friends wouldn't play with you today?

Mommy, I Cut My Hair

Elijah and I were scrapbooking together when I got a phone call. After I hung up he told me he cut his hair with his scissors. I didn't believe him because I couldn't see any obvious bald spots. He insisted he did while I was on the phone and then showed me the spot. It was towards the back in the middle. I punished him by putting him in time out and told him he should never do it again. When he came out of time out he said " I'm sorry I cut my hair mommy. I wanted to look like Grandpa and he doesn't have any hair in the middle." I couldn't stay mad after that.

I built those trees

About a year ago we were driving back from Scranton and Elijah says pointing at the mountains: "You see all those trees, mommy. I built those trees when I was big." Ever since then he tells me that everytime we pass that area of mountains.

He's Shy

Whenever someone talk's to the baby Elijah will tell them. " Sebastian doesn't talk yet because he's shy."

Elijah meeting his new brother

Daddy brought Eli to the hospital to see his new brother Sebastian. I asked him if he wanted to hold him and he said no. Then he said " Put him down mommy so we can see if he can walk yet."
