"Let me clarify this..."

The past two posts about Oliver have been somewhat negative, so I thought I would clear up anyone's thoughts of him being the naughtiest little boy. He's not the naughtiest. In fact, he's usually pretty well behaved and always hilarious...but when he misbehaves I just must tell someone, hoping they'll have pity on me. Deep down somewhere inside I'm cracking up over the things he pulls, while in the moment I don't think it's all that humorous. And so I decide to share with those who will get a kick out of my life.
*the quote is Don Knotts, taken from 'The Ghost and Mr. Chicken'

I still laugh just skimming over the thought of you pulling little animals out of your vents! For the record - he doesn't sound naughty at all. He sounds resourceful, creative, and like a fun little guy!

first, thank you for that reference to "the ghost and mr. chicken." i LOVED that movie!!!
also, of course we know you love your little boy! when he's a perfect darling, though, it's not nearly as amusing for us. :)

Allow me to finish the quotation from Don:
"Let me clarify this - THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME."

he's absolutely the cutest and the bestest...just has a bit of a mischievous streak...maybe a little stubborn too???...well, anyway, he's nearly perfect.
