Tom Cat and Cooper

Cooper, my fancy dresser on the way to church (too bad he didn't make it all the way to church with his bow tie on....

Cooper is a funny little dude in his own way. He's not easily understood by the public, but I know what he's saying!! Sunday morning we discovered the "Tom the Talking Cat" app on my phone. He loves it!!!! If you don't know about the app, it's a cat that repeats whatever you say to it in a slightly higher pitched voice. Cooper kept saying, "Hey Kitty, Kitty, Guess what?" and of course, kitty would repeat it back just as he said it...the funny part was that everytime the cat would say "guess what?", Cooper would answer, "WHAT?" It was almost as if he'd forgotten the game and that the cat was repeating his words. So funny to watch him!!!


So, I haven't blogged in a while....not for lack of subject matter, but pure laziness. I like to think that I'm just enjoying the moment, but really, I'm too tired at the end of the day to write it all down. However, the conversation I had with Maddox this afternoon was too funny not to write down....

We had just returned from the Grand Opening of the Cumming Aquatic Center. Cooper fell asleep on the ride home and Maddox was ready for a snack as soon as we hit the door. I got Cooper situated on the family room floor (his preferred nap spot) and got Maddox a bowl full of goldfish when I sat down at the computer to check email, facebook, and do a little dreaming on I was still in my bathing suit and cover up when Maddox came in to chat with me....

Maddox: (while reaching to stroke my shoulder to my chest, again I'm still wearing my halter tankini top and a long maxi-ish dress over it) "Mommy, can I ask you a question?"

Me: "Sure, what's up?"

Maddox: "How come when you let go of these (pointing to my halter) your boovies hang down here (pointing to his waist)? Aren't they supposed to be up here? (pointing to his own chest)

Me: (buried my head and tried not to wet my pants while trying to control my laughter)

He's a boob man, great. Or in his case, boove...hahaha!!! Please excuse me while I go find a push-up bra and a beer!
