"Do You Need Privacy??"

As my daughter nears her due date, the logistics of frequent doctor visits, cross country meets that her husband coaches, parent-teacher conferences, and all other kinds of things in a young family's life, it gets a little more difficult to fit everything in.  So I was fortunate (wouldn't feel any other way) to babysit Cormick for a few hours on Wednesday while Mommy went for her weekly prenatal visit.  He truly amazes me with his command of the English language, given that he's only 2 1/2 years old.  Although this could easily turn into a braggin' Grandma post, I do have a story to tell.

I was actually reminded of a post that my blog buddy Leanne shared with us a while back when I had the following exchange with Cormick: 
(Let me preface this by saying that those who have been alone with a 2 1/2 year old know that you never close the bathroom door when it's just the two of you in the house).  So I need to go potty, leaving said door open and Cormick, standing with one hand on the door jamb and one hand on the bathroom door handle, says to me, "Do you need privacy?"  (Did I just hear that correctly, I ask myself).  Yes, honey, I need privacy.  To which he closes the bathroom door, staying outside the bathroom.  Then immediately opens the door, again one hand on door jamb and one on handle and asks, "Do you want a little or a lot?"  (Seriously, the kid is 2 1/2 and he's asking me this!?!).  Just a little, I say.  To which he then closes the door halfway.  If I had been fully clothed, I'd have wet my britches!!!!

This is when I realize that my life is incredibly blessed with this little guy.  He brightens my day beyond my ability to verbalize.  My heart dances when I'm around him.  So, my questions to you today are: 

What makes your heart dance? 
And what was so funny this week that you nearly wet your britches??

SOooo funny, PK! I love it! (Love the blog look, too! The header is cool and the wallpaper so great!) This weekend we played a game of kids charades, and I had to act out "Jumping over hurdles". Well . . . YOU know ME. You can only imagine how I did this one. PG and I laughed so hard, we nearly "wet our britches" (as you put it!) So funny! Love that Mr. C!
