The boy is 6*
he came into this world – surprise! – 20 months after his sister. and he was a big ole’ bald melonhead.
(holy dark hair, Ali!)
Josh at 6 is a pretty awesome kid.
He is by far my best sleeper and by far my worst eater. but give him a pound of chicken wings and he’ll go to town. or steak. yes, he’s all boy, my child.
He is a superhero, a power ranger, a transformer.
He is a lego-maniac. and a Star Wars freak. He loves Webkinz and Xbox.
and is a master of the one-liner. some of his greatest hits:
“Wanna know something weird? My knee-pit stinks!”
Josh: Daddy, Britney Spears died.
Husband: No, she didnâ€™t, Josh.
Josh: oh right, that was Moses (yes, that Moses. from the bible. because the two are so easily confused)
#3 (on the airplane):
â€œdaddy! i just farted in my own face!â€
husband: Josh, please donâ€™t knee me in the balls, thanks.
emily, giggling: Daddy, what are balls? (giggle, giggle)
husband: they are the things underneath your penis.
josh: no, Daddy, those arenâ€™t balls. they are poisonous beans.
Josh: Daddy, I will be Luke Skywalker. Who will you be?
Daddy: Iâ€™ll be Obi-Wan Kenobi
Josh: Okay, but if you see Darth Vader, donâ€™t kill himâ€¦.cuz heâ€™s my dad.
i seriously could go all day with these…
Happy Birthday Joshua!
*i published this EXACT post last year on Urbanmoms.ca when Josh turned 5. the funny thing is, it’s EXACTLY the same. i mean, i would probably add Bakugan and Ben 10 and Indiana Jones and Wii and Super Smash Bros Brawl to the list of things he loves…but, really, he’s still the king of the one-liner, a shitty eater (unless it’s meat) and a good sleeper.
