So Patrick gets the "talk" about how I would like for him to express his feelings more often, and with more feeling. We were preparing Thai food for our dinner guests and Patrick was chopping onions. When I came into the kitchen, he turns around with tears streaming down his cheeks and he says in a semi-sob/smile, "Now would be a good time to tell you (sniff, sniff) how much I love you, and what a wonderful (sniff, sniff) wife and (wipe tears) mother you are..."
I couldn't stop laughing for days.
While we were chopping veggies, I took the cutting board from Patrick and said, "I need that." And he started to mimick Micah and said, "No, I nee dat!!!" and we went back and forth when all of a sudden--- in enters Micah and he looks up at both of us and says, "Mommy, Daddy, SHARE!"
I couldn't stop smiling for days.
