Today while I was at Catfish's baby shower (which was great), Big Kid was waiting by the front window for me and reminding Mr. Ashley that I had told him I wouldn't be long. When I came home, he threw himself in my arms and then asked me to come see the additions he had made to his art gallery (he has claimed one dining room wall and a roll of tape and made it his own).
I admired one particular piece entitled "Hello Jello" and offered one dollar for it. He thought about it for just a moment before saying, "I don't wanna sell it, but I do want your dollar, so I'm gonna sell it and make anudder one 'zactly like it." Future art dealer in the making, that one!
Tonight before he went to bed, he hugged me and said, "Mom, I wish everyone in da world was dest like you. But all lookin' different. But like you on da inside."
Damn. I seriously couldn't even begin to make this shit up. He is so awesome with the compliments. I wish everyone in the world was like HIM. It would be a much nicer place to live.
