The Tater Bug

Our little guy Tate is becoming quite the big boy!! The good news is he is now officially potty trained which is quite the feat considering his favorite phrase as of late when asked to do anything has been, "I can't" said in the most whiny voice possible.:)  The bad news is for some reason now Tate wants to color every surface but paper, i.e. our rock on our fireplafe, our walls, the stucco on our house outside, for a kid who doesn't give us too much trouble this has been such a frustrating thing! No matter what we do to punish him he doesn't seem to get how naughty his "artistic freedom" is.
On a more positive note he is quite the character and continues to amaze me how quickly he picks up on songs and loves to sing. He will be playing with his cars singing songs that we just barely heard in the car or on the T.V. and he knows them pretty well for just having heard them! He is also constantly saying funny things like today:
Coming out of his room with a small suitcase,
Tate: "Bye Mom, I'm going to work."
Me: "Where do you work?"
Tate: "In St. George." (He says matter of factly)
Me: "What do you do at work?"
Tate: "Eat candy!"
Nice to know he has got it all figured out! Love this little man!
