Actually, how about some of Vinny's wit? That boy is hilarious. Why, just this evening when I put him to bed, he asked me, "Mama, do wishes come true?" I have no idea where he picked that up, but it made me laugh, and then reply, "Sure, sometimes they do, sweetheart."
Lately we've been playing lots of hide and seek. He doesn't seem to quite understand the purpose or the strategy of the game. When you ask the rhetorical question "Where's Vinny?" you'll hear his fluty little voice answer "I'm right here!" We take turns being the one to hide, and he usually hides in whatever hiding place I used in the previous round. I guess that's because wherever I hid was so awesome that it will be as hard for me to find him as it was for him to find me. After I hid in the shower, Jeff tried to steer him towards a better hiding place, but he declined to hide there, saying, "No, it's my turn to hide in the shower."
Good times here at Casa Rebecca.
