Favorite Spike-isms Recently
- After coming up to my bed at 4 a.m., Spike asked to sleep with me. I took him back to his bed and lied down next to him. With tone and attitude, he said to me, “Mom, your hair is messing up my sleeping.”
- On his birthday, Scuff says to him, “Spike, you need to quit being so cute and having birthdays.” To which Spike, in all honesty and sincerity, replied, “I just can’t help it.”
- After Speedy slept on the couch that night, Spike went running into his room after him, and said, “I slept in your bed………..ALL night!! Ahahahahahaha!”
- And my all time favorite, still: Drew arrived home from work, a little cranky. He was snapping at people about the state of the house. He really had only been home about 2 minutes. Spike was sitting on the living room couch with me looking at a book. (The back ground is that Spike gets really upset and super emotional about anything. So often, I tell him to ‘take a deep breath and try to calm down’. And then we practice doing it. This works for Spike and it helps him to control his emotions.) Without even looking up, Spike says, “Gosh Dad. Just take a deep breath and relax!” It caught Drew and I both so off guard that we started laughing hysterically and it broke the tension in the moment. So funny!!
And that is our little man.
