R.I.P. Slinky

Lately, John has had a little trouble getting to sleep at night. He has been coming out of his room several times each night with some crazy excuse. The last few nights have been much better, but Monday night this was his excuse. He wanted us to fix his Slinky! We had to inform him that the Slinky was dead! This Slinky was way past getting help. Jeremy was laughing so hard. He took this picture of our bewildered John, who still thinks there is hope for a full recovery. :) Since Corey left, I have spent a lot of time with John, playing, talking, and laughing. I have really enjoyed this time with him. He is so funny! Yesterday, he broke out into song in the Walmart parking lot. It was a hilarious version of the "Hokey Pokey", that he called the "Pokey Pokey". He also proudly told a random little girl at the play place at the mall that he went to "Knockbuster". He was trying to say Blockbuster, and plus that was like two weeks ago! He also attempted to eat dirt, and decided it wasn't that good. He said he thought he was going to throw up. Last but not least, he turned on the hose in the backyard all by himself and sprayed his sisters while they were playing. This was all yesterday! John David has been a joy to hang out with these days. He is in the stage where you never know what you are going to find in his pockets! Oh, the mind of a three year old! Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty who has blessed me with a little boy who makes it so easy to forget my worries.
