Here is sweet, happy Xander enjoying an ice cream cone at The Painted Cone on his birthday. This makes Mommy smile.
Creative (and strange) Xander story:
When your pretend space ship's battery runs low, and the pretend store doesn't sell batteries, one can (in The World According to Xander) create a new battery using hammers, tape, and lots of weasels. Simply pound the tape and weasels together using the hammers. This makes Mommy wonder.
Thoughtful Xander story:
Today we dropped off a lasagna to a friend who has just had a baby. As we were leaving, Alexander said, "Mommy, we should also make a lasagna for Jasper because his mommy is having a baby, too." This makes Mommy proud.
And then there's Naughty Xander. Yesterday I came downstairs from putting Jack down for his nap and found Xander under the kitchen table with a bowlful of sprinkles. He looked guiltily up and asked in his most polite voice, "Mommy, please may I eat these?" This forces Mommy to leave the room to laugh where he can't see her.
