He wants to be Spiderman?

Since the last post was all about us, I decided that tonight's blog can be about the kids. That's probably what most of you are looking for anyway. So here goes ... This afternoon Arik and I got our daily note from Matthew's teacher. Her comments are generally pretty funny, but today was especially good. They have some new kids in the class, so she decided to ask them all the same questions so they could get to know each other better. Here is the list of questions:

2.How Old
3.Fav. Color
6.Fav. Area to Play
7.Fav. Food
8.What do you want to be when you grow up?

She actually posted the responses from each kid. They were all pretty funny, but Matthew's killed us. This is what he had to say:

1. Matthew
2. Almost 4
3. Pink and Red
4. Blue
5. White
6. Marbles
7. Pizza
8. Spiderman

Oh ... kids ... they do say the darndest things.

Amy's verbal skills aren't that advanced yet, but she sure is trying to say more and more. I think she said "yeah" a couple of times the other day. It was pretty funny. However, I must say that we are having the most fun watching her learn to push Matthew's buttons. After 13 months of him running the show - she is ready to go head to head with him. She is very calculating, and it is hilarious. She waits until the perfect moment and then swoops in to grab his favorite toy, or the middle block in his tower, etc. I know we shouldn't laugh at this, but she knows exactly what she is doing and she is just over a year old! Not only does she grab the one thing she knows would make him nuts, she then holds it out in front of her and runs away laughing. Our sweet little girl is becoming a bit of a stinker! I thought it would be months before Amy could bring Matthew to tears. I guess the time has come ...
