The cousins are together again! How sweet it is!
* Nixon: Mommy, J is my best buddy! (J is his cousin, and this was said as we were driving to pick up J and his parents after their trip to see family in NYC)
me: That's great!
Nixon: Yeah, he's littler than me, but he's cool.
me: He's littler? You mean younger?
Nixon: No, I mean smaller. Like you. You are small but daddy is big. J is small and I am big.
me: That's makes so much sense!
Nixon: Mom, you need to be quiet and watch the road, it's dangerous to talk so much and drive.
* He was so excited to see J and J was excited to see Nixon. The almost hour long car ride home was filled with 2 very happy boys being very loud together! While it was great to see and hear them so happy to be together again, it was ouch for my ears.
* Nixon was so tired he went to bed, without a fight. Fell asleep, without sneaking downstairs. He was even found asleep on the floor by his uncle K! He hasn't slept walked in a long time! Poor kiddo :( Somehow I doubt this kind of exhaustion will translate into more sleep for mommy in the morning though....I can't get that lucky, right?!?
