Yesterday my darling son and I had to have a little tete a tete. I was watching Tyler and Mira, and whenever this happens Ian has difficulty following directions. You see he adores his cousin Tyler, he is the older brother that he will never have. I guess it is the next best thing. We were headed out to our newly remodeled library that we love! I had asked Ian repeatedly to get the Ferdinand book. He was looking all over the house for it. I told him to check downstairs on top of the dresser. By now he is in tears, and he can't find it. So I check, and where do you think it is friends? Yup on the dresser. I asked him again to go get it. He then came up to me and asked me if I was his Stepmom. I said yes, actually I am your wicked Stepmother. He looked at me, and said no you are not. I then told him that I loved him very much, but he needed to listen and focus when I give him directions. I'm sure it went out one ear, but I am hoping at some point it stays in that adorable head of his.
These photos have nothing to do with this story. I just noticed that "my boys" were matching tonight and Ian of course loved that. He luuuvs his Daddy...so sweet. Ian doesn't know it yet, but his is a very lucky little boy to have a Daddy that adores him so much, and would do anything for him.
