  • when they sing our made up songs weeks later: Pee Pee in the Potty (conga line), I Play Bongos (using the kids as bongos, courtesy of Big Bang Theory) are two that come up a lot.  When i use them as bongos, Jackson always asks to see the BBT clip of Sheldon playing bongos.  He laughs as if he understands.
  • when I’m in the bathroom on the potty and they all crowd in (including Archer) and have conversations with me while I’m doing my business.  Jackson comments on my big butt and Elena flushes the potty.
  • Elena looks up at you with those big blue eyes and you’re ready to give her anything and everything.
  • Jackson looks up at you with those big blue eyes and you’re ready to give him anything and everything.
  • when Elena says yes, her head nods and also her eyebrows.
  • you can never hear “I love you, Ammaw” too many times.
  • the blue glasses Jackson just got.
  • how much he loves school.
  • how Elena says “Pashta” and loves her pasta.
  • when Jackson wakes his mommy up at 5 am and says he has to bring the dwarf (Sleepy) to Ammaw’s house.
