He is a hopelessly devoted animal lover. Every time John takes him to the library, he comes home with books covered in animals. Mostly kitties. And today at Barnes & Noble, he carried around 2 books swarming with kitties and one book with a bunny. Here he is with Grandma Betty's dog, Lady.
John recently bought a DVD on the drummer Steve Gadd, because according to Tommy, "Steve Gadd has a great groove". When I first viewed the DVD, I was a bit reluctant to let the boys watch it, because Steve Gadd is just so darn strange and I didn't want the boys to pick up on his bizarre mannerisms. But upon further inspection, the guy is so humble and answers peoples' questions with such interest and detail, that he soon won me over. After watching Steve Gadd for just a few moments, Calvin said to me "Steve Gadd has stamps all over his arms". The man is plastered in tattoos:)
Calvin and I immensely enjoy our nutri-grain blueberry waffles for breakfast and snack time. John gave Calvin a whole grain tortilla and after eating it Calvin said "thanks for the blueberry tortilla daddy". I guess wholegrain=blueberries:)
After cleaning windows all morning with John, Calvin rewarded himself with 3 stars for his diligence. John said "Calvin, you were only supposed to take 2 stars". To which Calvin replied, "It was a big job daddy."
However, no amount of window cleaning can tire out this boy. He will do anything to stay awake, even let me take a bazillion pictures of him before bed. Here is my little sleep bandit, trying his best to escape some zzz's.
