This weekend Sam and Keith took a boys trip to Utah. This is the two of them when I dropped them off at the airport. (ORport - Sam calls it.) Anyway, notice his outfit? He insisted on dressing up for the trip, Sheriff badge and all and I think it is very cute. He was the most handsome boy in the Orplane. Keith says he was asking lots of questions as the plane readied for take off. At one point, he asked, very loudly, "Daddy, how do they know how to get to Uncle D's house?" Everyone around thought it was very cute that Sam thought the plane was going to take him directly to his uncle's house.
Back at home, Elise and I had a visit with Papa Han. We dropped the boys (Sam refers to the 2 of them as The Penis club) off at the airport and headed to the zoo. We had a great day at the zoo and I think Elise really enjoyed being the only child for a bit. Saturday, Papa Han went to the Del Mar Horse Races and I stayed home with Elise so she could nap and make up for lost sleep from the day before. Saturday evening, Papa and Curly arrived and started to settle into their rented condo - they will be here all month!
Today we picked Keith and Sam up from the airport and when we got home, Sam told me, "I am not your boy anymore. I still love you but I am not your boy." I responded sadly and asked why. He said, "Well, Daddy and I went on this trip and now I am his boy forever."
Later in the evening, when Sam was tired and getting ready for bed, he said, "On the trip with daddy I had a new head, but now I am home I have my old head again. I am your boy again, Mommy." Just too clarify, I said, "So when you were in Utah with Daddy, your new head thought you were Daddy's boy, but now you are home with your old head, and you are back to being Mommy's boy?"
I was happy to have my boy back with his old head.
