One thing I love about Summer is her ability to make everyone laugh. Here are some examples from the past couple of days:
#1: I was trying to get Summer changed and dressed for the day but she just kept running away. (Trust me, this is not always funny, but for some reason it was that day). She would head toward me, making me think that she was finally going to cooperate, when she would twist her body to dodge me and head the opposite direction again. Then she would give me this little smile. Stinker.
#2: The other evening, Josh and I had just had it. We both had stressful days and we were exhausted by dinnertime. Of course, that was the evening that Kylie chose to fight us on eating her dinner. But we soon were cracking up because Summer was just in a silly mood. Here's a sample conversation:
Kylie: I don't want to eat my dinner! It's yucky!
Josh: Kylie, this is what we're having for dinner. You need to eat.
Summer: Daddy? Daaaaadddy?? Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaddy? Daddy?
Josh (exasperated): What, Summer?
Summer (tongue sticking out): lalalalalalalalala
#3: Because of our struggle at dinnertime with Kylie the other night, we promised her last night that she could have a cookie if she ate all of her dinner without complaining. She did, so she got her cookie. But we couldn't give Kylie one without giving Summer one too, and after about 5 seconds it had disappeared. This picture says it all: "What cookie?"
