Daddy's Little Helper

 Andy and Andrew have recently accomplished quite a bit of male bonding lately. I have been working almost every Saturday, so this gives Andrew an opportunity to take care of a lot of projects around the house. Andy has become quite the little helper. I'm not sure how I feel about him walking in his dad's footsteps in his deeply rooted love of Lowe's, but I do love that they enjoy doing manly things together.

Andy was all geared up this afternoon in safely googles and ear protection so that they could mow the lawn together. I love it!

(Disclaimer: Andy's attire of Hawaiian shorts with a Gap camo t-shirt was all Daddy's doing, but I have learned that if I want Andrew to dress Andy, I'd better not complain about the results!)

Train Obsession

 I finally have a chance to put up some pics of Andy. Since everything the boy does has something to do with trains, I thought these would be appropriate. Most of his playroom is taken up with a train track.

The other day, I asked Andy, "If Mommy was a train, who would she be? Rosie? Emily?"

"No," he said, "Diesel 10!" Great. That's what every mother wants to hear.

I questioned further, "Which train would Daddy be?"

Andy cheerfully replied, "Big Thomas!" Apparently, Daddy is light years ahead of Mommy on the scale of diserable trains to be.
