Is it just me, or does Maddox dominate this blog? I used to feel guilty that he really was my favorite but I think he steals the spotlight just because he's home with me all day. He's been really naughty lateley though, so he has dropped in the ranks (in the past 24 hrs he dumped out an entire bottle of shampoo I had just bought that day, then pulled every book off the shelf while I was cleaning that up, then crushed up dishwasher tablets all over the floor while I was cleaning that up. He also pulled everything out of the kitchen cupboard so that he could put his toys in there instead, mopped the bathroom floor with dirty toilet water and the toilet brush and tried to flush game pieces down the toilet. This has greatly affected his "favorite" status). Despite being rotten, I still kind of like him and he still knows how to melt my heart, so here are the latest Na-Na musings....
I have decided Maddox is a little OCD. He becomes obsessed with random objects and has to carry them around every minute of every day, sleep with them and even calls out for them in the middle of the night if they get lost in the sea of blankets. It was the "chocolate boats" (brown door stoppers from grandma's house) for a long time, then there's always the random favorite cars or trains (I think the world stood still for the 3 days that his "baby Thomas" was left at the dentist's office), but lately it has been dice. He has dumped out all the games in search of every dice that he can find (he hit the jackpot with Yahtzee). I have to keep a steady stash hidden away for those midnight emergencies when he has dropped one on the side of the bed.
He said his very first prayer the other day. We were having a mid afternoon Fruity Pebbles craving and as we sat down to eat he reminded me that we needed "prayer" and then folded his arms and proceeded with this: "father...food...Thomas...Percy....blue train car...red train car, right here (and points to it)....amen!" He also makes me laugh whenever he hears Rhianna's "What's my name?" song, he gets so excited and calls it the Na-Na song ("oh Na Na, what's my name, oh Na Na..."). I also love when he talks, he pronunciates each word: "guess. what. mom", "be. quiet. Gi-Gi.", "try. again.", "play. with. Na Na.", "show.you."... He may be naughty, but that boy definately knows cute!
