On Being Three

The big guy?

My brother Ben.

The little guy?

His son.

Josh is a worker.

Even when he's playing he's working.

He has a shovel and a wheelbarrow.

He has a tool set.

And when Daddy is busy, so is he.

When Josh isn't playing with a tractor, he likes to be at the nursery riding in the tractor.

Recently Ben put up a new mailbox.

Last night Ben was repairing a sprinkler pipe.

Josh got a shovel and started digging a hole.

He put a 2 x 4 in the hole.

He started filling the hole with dirt.

Ben said, "Josh, what are you doing?"

Josh said, "I'm building a mailbox Daddy."

A few days ago Josh was at home with his mom.

He asked this very important question.

"Mom, where's the silicone glue? I need it for something."

His Mom said, "Silicone glue?"

Josh said, "Yeah, like Daddy used on the kayaks."

Silicone glue...

I'm thinking this little guy is going to make it big in the world of tractors...and glue.

That is so cute, sounds a lot like Carson. He is always helping Jake "fix" things and "build" things. So cute. :)
