Now for the etc. part of the post:
Dan said his night time prayer with Derek the other night. Afterwards Derek hurried into our room to write down what Dan had said so that I could post it later. Dan prayed, "Thankful that Jesus made us -- with a little help from God".
Another day when I was with Dan during his night time prayer he said "Thankful that Dad's not faster than me at running to my room". (I guess Derek was very convincing when he let Dan win).
The day after Derek and I had been gone to dinner and Tia had been watching Dan, he said to me, with some amount of surprise, "Mom, Tia can't see without her glasses!" I told him that Dad and Trisa had a hard time seeing without theirs too. He's used to me since I am with him every day and I am still blessed to be able to see quite well without my glasses, I just get less headaches with them. Sometimes though, I can forget mine, or just get tired of them being on my face and I take them off. Dan said "Tia just takes her glasses off to sleep".
Dan is working hard at figuring the world out. He did freak Trisa out a bit when she came to visit because he said "Trisa, we're all going to die soon." She asked if he was worried about that and he said "No, we'll all live in heaven together and it will be nice."
My favorite thing that he says though is not "what's tomorrow Mom?" because he asks that a lot and I don't always get the answer right according to Dan. Lately he keeps asking "When is the last day Mom?" I don't know what he is hoping I'll say, and I usually just say "I don't know". My real favorite is when he says "I'll love you forever Mom". That will be nice.
