BACON for Breakfast

Baylie slept on the family room couch last night. Today is the first day of Christmas vacation, which means Jayce is up bright an early and ready to party!
He asks Ross if we can make Bacon for breakfast- and as we begin he has this sneaky little grin on his face and says-
"I am going to hook a string on the bacon and dangle it in front of Baylies nose! That's the best way to get her off the couch! Trust me!"

The frightening truth is that this is a pretty good idea- and it just might work!
Bay does love her food. Ask Jayce what he wants to be when he grows up and he'll say he wants to be "a pig, just like Baylie."

"I'm smarter than you think I am!"

This is how my days are going lately-
"Hey mom, I just wrote 'today'- see."
I look and it says "towday"
So- being the idiot that I am, I tell him that his word says towday- not today.
"Mom, don't you think I know how to spell tow? Its T-O-E. Gosh, I'm smarter than you think I am!" and he storms out of the room.

A few minutes later he returns and asks "5 plus 5 is ten, right?"
Yep, I say- "Well then how come when I add 8 and 2 it makes ten?"
I think to myself that I may have an opportunity here to show my little man my mean math skills! I take out 10 candy's from the dish and show him how many different numbers we can add that equal 10. He's slightly impressed- I can tell because he keeps saying "cool dude" over and over! He asks if this works with all the numbers-
Yep, I say- and he's off!
He pokes his head in a few minutes later and says "Mom, sometimes your smarter than you look!"
Score one for me!

"Hey, I'm six now!"

Ive heard this over and over again for a few weeks.
"Hey I'm six now and I don't need to take a bath (or a shower)."
"Mom, I'm six now so you don't need to hug me so much."
"I'm six so I don't want your help."
You get the idea-
I'm so happy, because I'm 43 and I'm tired:)
Here's a few pictures from the birthday party. His actual birthday was on Thanksgiving day so we took a Pinata to Shontells and had some party fun with the little ones.
