Kai says...

so very many funny things every day. The kid cracks us up. Tyson reminded me that I need to write them down because when he is 70 he wants to remember:) So here are a few:

Kai mixes English and Spanish in almost every sentence now. My favorite is when he throws in a word I now we don't use that often or haven't taught him...that means he is picking it up from native Spanish speakers which is what I want:) The other day he wanted a chip from Tyson so he said "Daddy, I want one, I want it in my boca (mouth)".

Kai has been praying in Spanish lately because at his school (which is Catholic) they pray the same prayer every day. For a long time I could not recognize anything he said but lately we can clearly hear "en el nombre de el padre, hijito, espirito santo" (in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit). The other day in the store he was just blabbing away to himself really loud in Spanish and I recognized the words from his prayer...I don't know if anyone else could understand but I found it funny how loud and serious he was doing it.

We have been reading a little book with verses and Kai has been memorizing some. The other day we read "Honor your Father and Mother so that you may have a long, good life", to which Kai added "and chocolate cake."

These are a just a few I can remember right now...but I will add more as they come:)
