Asa-isms: Part III

Jim: Kids, we're going to play the quiet game. Let's see who can be quiet the longest.
{five seconds later...}
Asa: I'm winning.





Asa: I spy with my little eye something bald with a head.
Chloe: Is it daddy?
Asa: (shocked that she got it on the first try) You GUESSED it!!!

Wheels...

Today, with very little help from Mommy, Asa learned how to ride a bike. I've never seen a child master a two-wheeler so quickly! He was so proud of himself and wants to spend all his time outside practicing his newly acquired skill!

Swimming in March & Locs Update...

The boys have been spending a lot of time in the pool. I caught a quick picture and you can kind of see how long Asa's locs have gotten; stretched out, they are 3-4 inches.



Compared to this picture I took when we first started them late last summer...




He still loves them and can't wait until they are long enough to pull back with a rubber band. Even with the swimming, they are staying soft - he never has any type of breakage. We wash with conditioner once a week and mist with Palmer's Olive Oil Spray when I damp-towel rub them every other day (or so). The towel-rub method is all we've ever used and they are so uniform and neatly loc'd, even up to the scalp.

More Asa Quotes:

Asa: It's dangerous to run in the road 'cause a car could squash you flat like a scarecrow.
Me: Scarecrows are flat?
Asa: Yes, if they get squashed by a car.
Asa: Mom, are you going to wear that?
Me: (in what I thought was a cute jogging suit) Yes, why?
Asa: Because I'll be embarrassed.
Me: WHY?
Asa: Because it looks like pajammies and people are going to laugh at you.
"Asa, what do you want for Christmas?"
"An iPad."
