My Ike

I have a little boy.  His name is Ike.

100_8769He asks a lot of questions about this world.  He’s trying awfully hard to figure out what and why and how come things do the things they do.  I found myself explaining pressure to him the other day and then volcanoes and then he asked me if he came out of my belly button.  Sometimes I have to tell him he can ask two more questions and then he needs to find something else to do, mostly because my ears need a break and my brain hurts from working so hard to answer his difficult questions.


I never know what’s going on inside that giant light bulb shaped head of his.  Sometimes he gets upset when he can’t get his big head out of a shirt, but then he starts laughing when the shirt is pulling his upper lip over his nose and willingly admits, “I’ve got a big honkin’ head!”

100_8777He’s a very sweet, gentle, laid back kid…..with lots of questions.  I like my Ike.
