In all reality they'll probably last till 9 when they come inside to fall asleep in bed :)
So, stories. Alex is really into giving me hearts and saying he loves me... which I love. Tonight I told him to stand up straight so I could get him dressed, instead he was hugging me. When I told him again he said "but mom, I HEART you!" Isn't that a tween saying?
Also, in San Diego whenever we would see a black man in a service position, like bus driver, security, trash man, he would say loudly "Thank you NORVILLE!" Alex has a loud voice that is quite clear, so the man would always either smile or laugh or act like they were ignoring him. He kept saying "Look mom, here comes Norville!" Now, I don't know why, but for some reason Alex thinks that all black men in service positions are named Norville. It was kind of embarassing but mostly Dave and I were just confused as to where he got this. Crazy kid.
Also, Dave told him he was cute and Alex finished with "as cute as can be!" Too many grandparents around this one :)
