Random Thoughts by Ethan Beechem, Age 3

Tue, Oct 13
Ethan built a bridge between the couch and the ottoman with an upside down laundry basket. On top of the basket, he placed a little trash can. Then, he put a big piece of paper in it. He said, “This is my paper bin. I am going to recycle it.”

( I don’t know where he heard about recycling or the words “paper bin” but it was really cute!)

As we were getting in the van after church, he said, “There’s Miss Flo’s car. We’re not going in Miss Flo’s car tonight. We’re not going to Miss Flo’s house. We’re just going home.” (I think he was remembering the time we rode with Flo to see her house being remodeled this summer. It truly upset him to have to ride in another car, especially in a different car seat! He did NOT want to do that again!)

Although the last 2 days showed Ethan’s creativity and excellent memory, today was monumental in the potty training category! He went to Kids First day care with big boy underwear & did not have an accident all day long! We even went to Walmart & McDonald’s after school and he still didn’t have an accident! Yippee! Maybe we’ve finally crossed a HUGE hurdle! However, he keeps saying that he does NOT want to “grow up!” We think he thinks we’re saying “throw up” because he was sick a few weeks ago and did NOT like “throwing up!” L

It never ceases to amaze us how blessed we are with both of our children. It’s just amazing the things that Ethan thinks to say each & every day! He has such a sense of humor and quick wit!
