My Name Is Amos

My Name Is Amos

These people never cease to amaze me. I am out of school one day and we are on the boat. I said, "swing," but no one cared. Daddy said that I love the boat. Just because I said, "go on boat," doesn't mean I wanted to. Duh. The life jacket is a real problem for me. My mom said she gets that and so does everyone within a two mile radius. We all must have a cause. Mine is reminding Mommy that I am the boss. She says I'm going to be wearing my gla ..

My Favorite Things

My Favorite Things My name is Amos. I may not say much, but I can articulate the important stuff. Fortunately, these people I live with understand me. My blankie is key. I have two of them and like them within shouting distance at all times. My mother is a given too. She is my interpreter and mind reader, not a great one but good enough. I adore a swing. I mean, I use the word fwing a thousand times a day. My family gets bored with fwinging, but not me. Sand is q ..

Amos & Swimming

Amos & Swimming

My name is Amos. Someone has signed me up for a week of swimming lessons. I may need to rethink this not taking a nap thing. I may rather be asleep than dunked in a cold pool. It's not an option, my mom said. She clearly didn't get the memo that I'm on vacation. Good grief. I can swim just fine. Well, almost. If I don't follow directions, it's not my fault. I mean, everyone speaks Spanish. Love, Amos ..

Amos & Swimming Lessons

My name is Amos. Me real tired. I did not like swimming lessons. Like, really did not like. All that Spanish and loud talking. It was just too much. It was scary too. I love the pool, but that pool was cold. My grandparents keep their pool at 84. My mom says one day of that was plenty. I'm glad we can take swimming lessons off our agenda. Shew. She said this special needs stuff is complicated. Hello? Me? Never. Love, Amos ..

Amos & the T-Shirt

Amos & the T-Shirt

My name is Amos. My sissy finds my shirt very offensive. My mom claims it has spawned a lot of interesting conversation. Sissy says she's worth at least a hundred dollars. Little Thomas said $1500. Russell said he's not for sale. My mom said it would be difficult to put a price on me. She said we would all need a no return policy. That sounds not very nice. We are keepers. Love, Amos ..

Amos & Easter Dirt

My name is Amos. Easter means dirt and eggs and my mommy. Did you know I can say Mommy? I can. I learned today. Mommy. I learned it from my sister's new baby alive. My mom said it was the best Easter present ever. I mean, my Mommy. Happy Easter! I'm off to the beach. Love, Amos ..

Amos and The Shower

Amos and The Shower

My name is Amos. I adore a shower. My mother always asks me if I want to get in with her. Of course, I always say NO. It's important that one maintains his fierce independence at all times. I'm quite the expert. Tonight, I stayed in there over an hour. I cleaned with the toilet brush. I am a big fan of opening and closing the shower door. I like to shout HELLO at my mother. Then I say BYE and close the door. It's so fun and I think she likes our game better than me ..

Muddy Feet

Muddy Feet

My name is Amos. I have a way of finding a mud puddle. As soon as my mom looks away, I make a beeline. "Ohhhhhh, Amos," she says. What? I don't know why it bothers her. It's not her feet that are sloshing around in church shoes. It doesn't bother me a bit. Well, maybe a teensy amount. I do like when my mom pretends to scold me though. She's such a faker. Love, Amos ..

Amos & His Family

My name is Amos. I am three years old. I have two big brothers and one big sister. I guess that makes me the baby of the family, but my mom says I'm a big boy now. She told daddy that I have lots of new tricks. Her favorite is when I surprise her with a kiss. I have been singing a lot and she always knows what the song is, even though it's really humming. Twinkle twinkle, ABC, One Little Finger, I love those songs I have been hearing at my school. I p ..

Amos & The Beach

Amos & The Beach

My name is Amos. The beach is my good place. I am happy as a clam wallowing in the sand. I play with my big trains and the shells my sister finds for me. I like to run in and out of the water. I like to chase my brothers and sister. I do not like icky moon jellies. I can't go to the beach and not ask for ice cream. My mom says that's my idea of peas and carrots. I don't like peas and carrots, but I do like a nutty buddy on the sandbar. I a ..
