Ode to Joshua

This week we had the pleasure of spending time with Joshua, Andy's first cousin (yes, i said first cousin).  Joshua is the epitome of precious.  My children loved bossing him around, and he happily obliged.  Bode was in heaven.  Finally a family member that can share in his love of all things Buzz Lightyear. 
Bode also had the pleasure of introducing Joshua to our filthy lifestyle.  Yes, Dana, that is dirt caked all over the picnic table.
 And, yes, they did eat graham crackers and yogurt smoothies in the bathtub (but I would like some points for actually bathing them, thankyouverymuch).
Who's going to say no to two three-year-olds begging to wear matching Buzz pajamas?  Not me.
And Mia loved Joshua because he has not yet been micro-managed by her to the point of rebellion.
And I loved Joshua because I found out that he still takes three-and-a-half hour naps every single day.  And for the sake of full disclosure I did the unthinkable and allowed myself to wonder what it would be like to have a child that took a nap.  And it made me kind of jealous for about five minutes.
Would I trade psycho-face boy for 3 hour napper boy?  Well, maybe for a couple of days.

I would trade just about anything for those cheeks and glasses.
