Henry at soccer class, playing in "The Big Game!!" as he calls it, loudly singing "OLE, ole ole ole!" when his team scored, melodramatically clutching his head in both hands when the other team scored, and cheerily bossing around his teammate - "our goal is open, so you just stay there the whole game, ok? OK!!"
Henry huddled for warmth in a tent at B&O's baseball game, when Kevin suggested that he look out to see a police officer riding by on a horse, "eh, I've seen that before."
Playing Trouble with Henry and Owen last night, when Owen was contemplating a move that would bump Henry back home, Henry offered this wise advice, "I wouldn't do that, personally."
Henry proudly sharing, "today for show and tell, guess what?!? I brought in the half-cut turkey that I drew, AND a penny that I found in my ski jacket!" Oddly enough, he could not remember whether he received any "questions or comments" on these fascinating items.
And then there was this exchange:
Me: Henry, who do you want to be your mystery reader? Daddy did it for Owen and Brendan last year, so he could come and read to your class too.
H: I want you. Because I love you.
Me: Okaaayyyy, I'll do it, but of course you love both of us.
H: But I just love you a little bit more.
Well, alrighty then.
