He's the boy who absentmindedly chews the tires off the toy cars. (See his cousin Sam eight years ago) He used to run into walls hourly. He's not dumb; he's already sounding out three letter words before his fourth birthday and he's got a good handle on those math skills. But he just might eat poop to make sure it's not chocolate. And so now some words from Ike:
During a walk to get out some of Arlo's energy, "Mom, have you gotten out all Arlo's injury now?"
On the same dark walk, "Why do ghost-es fly instead of taking walks?" Me: "'Cause they don't have feet." Him:"Yeah, but they have feet when they're owls dressed up like ghost-es."
Pondering Atticus, "He sucks his thumb but he doesn't suck his nose."
And our favorite of the week from dinner last night, "Mommy, can I be full now?"

I LOVE that boy! He's definitely a keeper. He IS very smart but he's also extremely sweet and wonderful.
BUT ~ most important did you get him his present from me and dad yet? And I don't remember if I sent you a check to cover it yet ~ did I ?! (I guess you see where Ike gets it...)
I get the owl dressed as a ghost one too! It's from Little Bear! Owl DOES have feet when he's pretending to be a ghostie! Ike's smarter than the average bear....
I am glad you are writing these down! (And I am glad Atticus doesn't suck his nose ;-)
Thanks for that post - I was in desperate need of a LOL moment. :)
Lynn... Ike cracks me up!!!! so funny what they say, eh? I know my bloggie is so very full of fun Lavender qoutes, but I just can't help myself... so very funny!
Very good boy! I think, he will get lot of success in his life. He is doing painting very sincerely.
