This morning, Abigail was playing with Samuel and Silas when she noticed Samuel had a messy diaper. From the other room I heard her say, “Samuel, go tell Mommy: ‘I stink!'” Samuel came running into the room and said, “Mommy, Abigail stinks!!” Then he stood there, thinking, then shook his head, and said, “No, Mom, Abba doesn’t stink. I stink.”
Also this morning: Samuel rushed into my room growling and roaring: “Mom, I’m a monster and I’m going to get you!” “Why are you going to get me?” I cried. “Because you’re nice and I’m mean!”
Then he turned into a pirate instead of a monster, laid down in the floor, started moving his arms and legs open and closed, and said, “Look, Mom, I’m a pirate angel!”
Just a few tidbits that all took place within fifteen minutes to give you a clue to the hilarity that is Samuel.
