First thing he said to Baba this morning right after saying good morning. Why he was wearing this preppy V-neck sweater without anything under is beyond me. He only had the top two buttons done, so it was even weirder. He kept flashing his belly proudly to me.

"It's Trader Joe's, I think!" We went out to get some groceries, as we're getting closer he must have recognized the way.
"I like the green cereal." He was excited when we picked it up, he eats so much of it. He wanted to hold on to it even as we needed to pay. This guy really turned up the charm in the store... A nice older lady smiled at him all through the store and complimented us on him. They waved at each other and she told Baba that he was a good boy and that he was raised right, she could tell. How nice! At check out, he got some stickers and as we left he spoke up louder and said, "Bye, love you!" The checker thought it was the sweetest thing. He's never said that to a stranger before, only to us or a favorite person or two. I hope it doesn't become too much of a habit (saying it to strangers I mean)!
"we're going to see my friends?"
"I like to drive this car."NJ and I had a play date that we both really enjoyed. I got to sit and relax and talk while NJ and the kids played and played together. An afternoon visit turned into us staying for dinner. It was so nice of them to invite us to stay, I'm happy we did. NJ had so much fun, he didn't want to leave. When I asked him to put his shoes on, he said he wasn't done putting cars away. Uh-huh, sure. That got a laugh out of the aunties. As we were leaving, he whined about not wanting to go. "But I don't want to go. I want to stay here." He repeated this all the way home. I kept telling him we can go back to visit another time. I'm glad he had such a great time and got along well with the kids. :)

As we drove to class, I went a different longer way and made a couple of wrong turns. NJ knows the way exactly though and complained and whined about it. "Why we not going to class? Go that way! No, not this way, you have to turn around! Where you going? Mama, I want to go to class..." and finally, "Come on!" Ha, that's a first. Excuse me for losing my way that you can't wait an extra minute or turn or two! He really loves going to his class!
