Rita's Pool Party
We went to a pool party at Aunt Rita's today. No time to write much, but there were two funny scenes.
Yoav and Cousin J were playing with cars and blocks in the basement. Cousin J had three little orange cars. Yoav said, "Orange is my favorite color. Can I play with one of those?" Cousin J said, "No, I'm using them." Yoav said, "Oh, OK, don't give me one then." and went off happily to play with something else. A few minutes later, Cousin J came to scope out what Yoav was playing with. Yoav said, "Do you want to play with something? You can play with anything except these cars on the fire truck (he had put a few cars on top of a fire truck)." Cousin J saw a purple car on the fire truck (one of the ones Yoav had said he didn't want to share) and said, "Can I play with the purple guy?" Yoav said, "Oh, ok. Here you go." and handed it to him. Yoav is unbelievable when it comes to sharing. He never ceases to amaze me in that regard.
Another funny story - later in the day, an older cousin (6 yrs old) was pulling on the little blow up boat Yoav was in. Yoav told him to stop, he didn't, then Yoav said, "You can play with it when I'm done, or you can play with that other boat over there, or..." I think the other kid just swam away when the monologue started LOL. I love hearing all of Yoav's ideas and how he gives "options" to people.
Oh, one other really funny thing. He was talking about Leila, his current love. Uncle Dan said to him, "Oh, you like Leila?" Yoav said, "I *love* her." Dan said, "You want to marry her?" Yoav said, "Yes." Dan said, "Are you going to ask her?" Yoav said, "Ima-ma is going to ask her for me."
