*We made this video during family night to try and convince Josh's cousin, John, to move to Utah (he asked for a list of reasons he should come). Although reasons 2 & 3 refer to John's wife and daughter, if you don't live here, please consider our reasons applicable to YOU, too.
me: *crying about something silly* jj: what's wrong, mommy? me: I'm sad, joshy. jj: i'm sad too.
jj: draw with me, mommy? (on an ipod touch application) me: where's the eraser? what do I push?
me: *click the back arrow, it erases, and I become just another parent who needs to be taught how to use gadgets by my kids*
Heather (Josh's sister): boo! jj: stop! heather: stop what? I didn't do anything! jj: stop scaring me!
me:*scolding him for something* jj: stop talking to me! (this one happens very, very often)
jj: want more, mommy. me: that's nice, joshy. jj: want more now! me:*give him an expectant look* jj: *sickeningly sweet, fake voice two octaves higher* may I please have some more?
me: *wiping off his dirty leg* jj: *indignant* that's my leg!
jj: *emptying the coins from my wallet* ooooh moneys. moneys, moneys. jj: *after getting in trouble for throwing the coins at bennett and knowing I am about to take the rest away from him* no! that's mines!
bennett: dadadada. me: no, mamamama. bennett: *huge smile* dadadada!
(apparently, cousin abby's mom asked her to find the most "boyish" dress she had for josh. this is what abby came up with.)
