Joshua asks for a certain vitamin the big kids eat that he can’t have until he is three.
I shake my head. He stands up in his high chair ready to wash up. He raises hands high over his head.
He grins wide. He says, “I can have one when I’m a big kid, when the twins come and I’m three!” He proclaims. He put that all together all by himself. I smile, surprised. “When I’m a big kid, the twins come and I’m three.”

Last night he happily eats a Rice Krispy Treat snack. Hands sticky, mouth messy, he says, “These are delicious and nutritious!!!” He shouts it at me, eyes twinkling, happy. (mouth full, too.)

Delicious and Nutritious… he is two.
