“sahn come OME!” translation: shawn come home! little joseph’s favorite phrase…probably heard it a MINIMUM of 100 times a day this past weekend. i have decided having small children around is about as agood for the soul as anything else i have experienced.
i love that joe doesn’t care how tired we are of hearing the same things over and over and over again. all he know is that he wants shawn to be there..to pick him up and toss him in the air and chase him around the room making his elmo voice…to tickle hm until he almost pees his pants.
he stood in front of the tv where mom and i were watching the news and stomped his foot with each pleading syllable. i pulled him to myself and said ‘you miss shawn?’ ‘up’ (yep) he replied. i explained to him that shawn was working and couldn’t come home and that i missed him too. i would’ve sworn i finally ‘got through’ that time…but then he crawled up on my lap, took my face in his little ‘shrown'(brown *grin*) hands and pleaded “peeeeess?”
joe and his little brother josh spend most thursdays- mondays at my parents house (soon custody will be theirs, thank JESUS) and sometimes i wonder if joe thinks that what the rest of us do too…go somewhere and then come “ome”…but whatever he thinks about his ‘two houses’ , he knows he wants everyone to be there together from my mom and dad to my brothers girlfriend ‘shusan’. he knows who belongs there and when they are missing it just doesn’t feel right to him.
sometimes i think i catch glimpses of what JESUS meant when He said we must become like children to be a part of His Kingdom…joseph at 3 and a half sometimes knows things i wish i knew!
enjoy the pics..joe is the one with dark hair and eyes..the little blond one is his brother, josh
