My Nephew is Schpecial

This is Little Joe.

He’s three.

Little Joe is my nephew and I am obsessed with him.

He is amazing, but he would say “AMAAAAZCHING” because he has a special way with words.

His voice is really deep and he’s really animated and matter of fact and so it makes me laugh a lot.

Last night he slept in the same room as Shaw and I in the little sofa bed at the end of our bigger bed and in the middle of the night after I got up to go to the bathroom I got settled into a bed next to my deeply slumbering Shaw and I hear a little whisper:

“Auntie Monica?”

“yes Joe?”

Then in a big outside voice he says:

“THIS BED IS AMAAAZCHING BECAUSE IT’S JUST SO CUTE AND COMFORTABLE AND SCHHHHOFT.

(stifling giggles) “sshhhh, Joe we have to be quiet- ok? it’s not daytime”

“OK AUNTIE MONICA” he says just as loud

and then in a whisper:

“Auntie Monica?”

“yes joe?”

“I”M SORRY I WAS SHHHO LOUD, I WAS JUSHT REALLY EXSHCITED”.
