Life Lessons

Hutson has been quite a rebel lately.  Last night at the grocery store, he walked up to the apple display and grabbed an apple and took big bite and put it back on the shelf.  Later we were walking thru the bulk items and he helps himself to a piece of chocolate.  It was funny at first but today while getting frozen yogurt, he grabbed an extra piece of candy.  So, he and I had a talk with the owner of the yogurt shop.  Hutson told him what he took and said sorry.  The owner rewarded him for his honesty with a few more pieces of candy.

Boden has been very concerned with Hutson’s behavior while shopping.  Boden stays close to the cart and mom or dad while Hutson is off on his own adventure.  Boden keeps an eye on Huts and when he gets too far away, Boden calls for him to return.  Today, Boden said “Hutson, come back…you are making me nervous”.

Boden has been progressing at swim lessons.  He can dive into the pool, do a cannon ball and use the kick board to kick across the pool on both his front and back.  During family swim, Boden will go down the big water slide by himself.  When he hits the pool at the bottom, he will swim to mom or dad.  Hutson rides down with mom or dad, laughing all the way to the bottom and right before we hit the pool, he covers his eyes with his hands.

Recently, we were talking about losing baby teeth and Hutson matter of factly states, “If you close your mouth, they won’t fall out.”   Then he asked dad if they would fall to the back of throat.

Hutson also believes that if “you eat cake on your birthday, you will turn four” basically change age to the next year. I’m avoiding cake from now on!


At soccer practice, Boden scored two goals and comes running over to mom…who said him “I”m so proud of you.” He responded..”I wanted to do my best.”
