If it was easy, everybody would do it.

After picking Rakes up from pre-school today, he and I went to the local grocery store to pick up some lunch meat.

As the automatic doors opened up, Rakes threw out his arms and yelled "Thank You!" at the top of his lungs.

He then proceeded to poke through a pack of sausage, rearrange the cottage cheese section, and spend 10 minutes picking out which pack of gum he wanted.

NOW I understand why Ang is reluctant (to say the least) to go shopping with 1 of them, not to mention all three.

I am proud to say that I didn't have to re-enact the scene in Mr. Mom where Michael Keaton yells out "Earl, we were never ON isle 5!"

hahaha. oh little kids. how you have to love them so.

however, reading about how their supposed to grow in a textbook - its just boring. these kids make it well, not so boring. and i may be asking you more questions in the near future.

i'll let you spend a day with my roommate (who for some unknown reason isn't talking to me) and Rakes moments like this - well they will make the two of your very happy to have them haha. oh and it will make you not want Ciera to go to school so they may go against her later in life. =p

Krystle, you want to move to NC and be a full time Nanny? You've got the job. If anyone is telling you how to raise kids who doesn't actually HAVE kids?

They have NO clue what they are talking about.

every day's an adventure with Rakes

Yes it is, Tex.

I love that he thanked the automatic doors for opening! He's too much. :)

And for the record, you are not exaggerating when you say he talks loud. He was on the phone with Jared the other night and Keith and I could hear Rakes. Not what he was saying, just his megaphone voice. :)

The lady at the checkout thought it was funny too, Stacy.

It would certainly expand his vocabulary.

To say the least.
