Tim was having a serious conversation with Lucas over lunch on Saturday afternoon.  He was giving him several reminders for good behavior, and said… “Lucas, we don’t tackle our friends at school.  We don’t tackle our friends at home.” And before Tim had barely finished his last word, Luke piped up with “We don’t tackle our friends in Spanish.”

He happens to be correct — we don’t tackle friends in any language.

One of Luke’s favorite bedtime stalling tactics is claiming that something hurts — usually his toe or his chin.  Lately, he’s been claiming it is his belly that is in pain and he demands “medicine.”  Some nights I give him a medicine dropper filled with water and he claims to feel so much better afterwards, but lately I’ve been offering him “medicine cream” to put onto his belly — also known as Aveeno baby lotion.  Medicine cream also has magical healing powers and his stomach feels better nearly immediately after its application.  After a few nights of offering “medicine cream” for his boo boo belly, he now proactively requests it… but he can’t remember to call it “medicine cream” and instead begs for “ice cream for my belly.”  Clearly, he’s his mother’s child.

Lucas is overtly friendly.  He walks down the street and waves to every car that passes.  In the grocery store, he rides in the cart and waves like the Queen of England on parade, commenting loudly if someone dare not wave back to him.  It’s often very cute and well received.

It was significantly less cute when Tim took him to the men’s room while out to eat at a local restaurant.  They walked in and Lucas began his vigorous waving… this time directed at a man using the closest urinal.
