Rule number two: Never give Thomas sugar when you wish your eardrums to remain intact. He just screamed mine in to smithereens.
Rule number three: Always remember Aly is amazing. That one's for me!
And of course, rules one and two mean little when Baby Thomas says 'dada'! He said it! Everyone was there! And I do mean everyone... Even Gavin. Poor guy. My little boy said 'dada'. I could melt.
But I won't! Because melting is not constructive unless you are trying to make ice cream soup. Which, incidentally, Anna is doing beside me at the moment. She keeps explaining it to me. I told her I made ice cream soup when I was little too and she said, "Daddy, where did you get the recipe?!"
God, I love my kids.
