Teddy immediately came to me as soon as I got back in the house. He grabbed my hand and led me to the glass door. Then he put my hand on the door handle and looked up at me.
Teddy asked me, clear as day, to go play outside with AJ. He did this without saying a word. He did this without crying to get what he wanted.
How could I not comply with his request? I bundled him up and sent him out to the deck, where he dragged around a snow shovel, licked somewhat clean snow, was dragged around on a snow shovel and licked the outside of the glass door.
|Look at that nice squat!|
Me, I stayed inside, smiling as my boys had fun playing outside together. But I have to wonder, how many other times has Teddy asked me something or told me something that I've completely missed?
