Tonight Marshall got us to laugh so hard. Quite a few times actually. I was worried I'd forget all of his good humor before I could write it down (which I remembered, gratefully!) and decided it was time to carry a little journal with me in my purse at all times. Here are the winners of the evening, in no particular order:
1. We were trying to convince him that a habachi grill restaurant would be more fun than Red Robin (his absolute favorite place!!!) and I was reminding him how they cook right there at your table and they use big fire and they toss food into your mouth, etc. He refused to agree with me since Red Robin is totally cooler! We tried a little more until he suddenly shut us down... "But I want to put my food in my mouth myself." Touche Marshall, touche.
2. He was showing off to some friends of ours (love you Nicole & Brandon!!!) and started singing a song from church, "If I had been a little child -then he switched it up- I'd put whipped cream on my head." He was on pitch with the right timing even and we all just lost it.
3. We were eating dinner at Wendy's and Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are" came on. He heard that song once and totally memorized the chorus so whenever we hear it I always try to get him to sing it. It's a cute song when Bruno Mars sings it, but it is infinitely better when Marshall sings it. (I love my 3 year old.) So it comes on while we're eating and he says to me right away that he's not going to sing it. But by the time the chorus rolled around he couldn't hold back and soon he was serenading the whole dining room. When the song was over he leaned across the table to me and said, "I rock."
4. We were in the middle of a long, long drive and had to pull over on the freeway so the boys could take care of "some business." As I helped Marshall get his clothes situated again I could not find his underwear. I asked him where it was and he just looked at me and said, "I left them at home." He seriously ditched the unders partway through the day and I had no idea! We've been calling him Commander for the rest of the night since he's been going commando.
Haha! What a silly little soul. This kid is the best comic relief you can find. Love you Marshall.
