the other Eric

I have to admit, I have Linsey to thank for this post. I love reading the cute dialogues she posts about funny things her daughter says. I often don't think of recording it when my kids say cute things. But, today, Eric said a few really cute things, so here goes:
At the volleyball game, I had some leftover Halloween candy for the kids to snack on. Eric had already had several, so when I told him 'no more,' he responded ,'you won't be my best mom anymore.' I let him know that he would still be 'my best Eric' even if he didn't like my decision.

Then later at the hotel, I came out of the bathroom and he asked 'mom, do you want to see my other Eric?' 'Sure' I replied, not sure what that might mean. He walked up to the full length mirror/closet door and said 'see, the other Eric.'

State and sports

Mary and the Bravettes played some great volleyball today but came up only a few points shy of the win. She did a great job and is truly a very talented player. She and Jim will go to Oregon again next weekend for her official visit--it's my first day teaching at the high school, so I am not sure if I am going to be able to go or not. I thoroughly enjoyed cheering for Mary in volleyball and for Bill in football this season. Billy's wrestling begins soon and I can't wait to go to his matches to cheer him on!
Amelie ends her little basketball games tomorrow. And I think I heard wind of some soccer that Eric is old enough to play! That will be fun! Poor kids, with the love for sports that Jim and I have I just hope that they don't feel we brainwashed/pushed them too much in their athletics! It's good for you, though--keeps you in shape and helps you develop skills like working with others and being a team player.
