Little Elvis-isms

Little Elvis is the funniest child. And this week, he's been in fine form.

On Monday, when I picked him up from school, the teacher helping into the car told him that he'd grown a foot. He looked down at his shoes to see where the new foot was.

I wanted to go for a walk by myself this week. I planned on leaving all of the boys with Bob once he got home. Little Elvis told me I couldn't. He said I had to take a kid. Why? Because someone might see me and think I didn't have any kids.

He's into washing his cars right now. I hate, hate, hate this. He runs the playroom bathroom sink full of water and puts his cars in there, then lets them drip everywhere. Right now, we are using the playroom bathroom since ours is still in the process of being tiled. No problem for Little Elvis, I caught him using Bob's toothbrush to scrub one of his dirty cars.

When I asked him if he'd done it before, he said, "I'm sorry." If he knew the phrase "plead the fifth" he would've invoked it. I never got a straight answer.

Yesterday when he got in the car after school, he said, "You better get ready. When I grow up, I'm going to sleep in bed with you and Daddy." I asked how old he would be. He said an adult.

One of his favorite phrases right now is, "You're never gonna believe this..."

Also yesterday, my father had to come jump my car off. One of the boys had unlatched the hatch in my hatchback. It wasn't open, but the light must've been on and run down my battery. I asked Little Elvis who did it. He said Daddy did it, without hesitation. Then he decided that Cheese Puff did it.

Here he is showing Baby Plum how to play a game he invented. It involved a calendar, a mini set of dice, a tiny wooden cross and a flat marble. The tiny dice were white with different colored dots. The one side had a red dot. Little Elvis told me looked like the Japanese flag. He learned that from Cars 2.
This was his latest tableau. He set up all of his army men and took several pictures. We fully intend to help him shoot a movie this summer. I keep pestering him for a star or a plot point, or something. I have a feeling it will be spy/superhero based. I found him a green screen video thing at a consignment sale last month. Bob got it to work on his computer, so now we can attempt to do some special effects.

Oh man, he's funny! I love the story about the foot the best.

I bet making a movie will be a blast!
