Six

Joe is six...he's at that age when I cringe each time he opens his mouth in public. I'm never quite sure what will escape his lips, if will be embarrassing or cute or both. A couple days ago at the library he was sitting at the coloring table with another little boy and the boy's mom and teenage sister were there too. I was wandering through the children's books...picking some out to take home. I heard Hannah run up and hug him and say "I love you Joey!". Then I heard the mom say "oh, is that your sister? She's so sweet". Then I heard a lot of laughter from the mom and the teenage sister. I asked them what he said....He said "I'm glad I'm going to die before she does so I won't have to be around her....for a while, anyway".

That is such a funny story. I cringe sometimes too when Lauren sees a boy and asks in a high pitch voice "is he a boy?" Because when she asks that I know that she will continue to asks if he has certain male body parts. Ahhhh.
