Conversations with Jonathan...

Many, Many, MANY, times over the past two years...

Mom: Jon, we REALLY need to cut your hair.

Jon: No.

Mom: But it's so BIG.

Jon: I like it.

Mom: But you look like no one takes care of you!

Jon: Don't care.

Two days ago...

Mom: Baby David, you need a haircut.

Jon: NO!!!

Mom: But it's all uneven and it's getting into his ears.

Jon: Can I sacrifice David?

Mom: WHAT??? NO you CAN'T sacrifice David!!!

Jon: I mean, I'll let you cut MY hair in HIS place...

Mom: Oh, you mean can you sacrifice yourself FOR David?

Jon: Yeah.

Mom: (heart melted on the spot...)

Last Week while I was singing along with David's "Signing Time" video...

Jon: Mom, why do you say you could never do American Idol when you really could?

Mom: Jon, Simon would say, "Why are you wasting my time???" (in my best british accent)

Jon: (giggling) But what would PAULA say, she's the nice one?

Mom: Paula would say, "But you look so pretty!"

Jon: (explodes into a belly laughing fit and can't speak any more!)

After church a few weeks ago...

Benji: In Sunday School, they asked us what we were most looking forward to in heaven, and I was the only one who thought of this...I will be able to FLY!!!

Mom: Yes, that will be fun. Jon, what did you answer?

Jon: I didn't, I was too shy.

Mom: Well, what WOULD you have answered if you weren't so shy?

Jon: I can't wait to see our babies that went to heaven.

Mom: (no words...just a VERY full heart...)

Last Saturday after I returned from a day long trip with my mom and sisters...

Jon: Daddy got mad at his cell phone.

Mom: He did?

Jon: Yeah, it kept shutting off on him, so he threw it on the couch, and he said if it did it again, he was going to throw it in the trash!

Mom: Oh...

...then after church the next day...

Jon: Do you know what I prayed for in church today?

Mom: No, what?

Jon: Your kidneys, our babies, and Daddy's phone!

Mom: (laughing hysterically that Jonathan ranks my kidney disease, and losing our babies right up there with Dad's cell phone issues!)

Awww, Mel, how sweet! And I love that you're "documenting" these things for them to read when they are older! I wish I would have written down every sweet and silly thing Zack ever said.

By the way, your kids are beautiful!
