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

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 ..

Amos & The Sled

Amos & The Sled

My name is Amos. I have a red sled. My mom bought it when she was having her first baby, my big brother Thomas. I had no idea sledding would be so fun. I rode down a big hill with Thomas, Russell and Blair. We fell off and I didn't cry, I laughed. Mommy said you could have knocked her over with a feather. She was shocked. I don't know why. I like new things. It wasn't that cold in my snowsuit. My mittens were annoying, but I wore them  ..

Amos & The Snowsuit

Amos & The Snowsuit

My name is Amos. This is my snowsuit. My mom bought it at a yard sale in Key Biscayne for $5. I am the fourth person in our family to wear it. I can say "no" for snow. I wasn't quite sure what snow was, but now I know. I have been practicing sitting in my sled in my snowsuit. I'm not a fan of hats or being cold. I'm thinking me bundled up and walking on ice is not ideal. Being inside, eating yogurt raisins, and playing with my school bus may be pr ..

Amos & The House

Amos & The House

My name is Amos. This is my house. My grandfather, DB, bought it for my sister at a yard sale before I was born. DB may act tough, but last year, he moved it beside the pool so I could use it more. I go inside and then stick my head out the window and say, "Hello!" I like for my brothers and sister to say, "Knock Knock!" I'm getting so tall that I have to duck to get through the door. I never hit my head though on that. I love my house. It's all min ..

Amos & The Foot

Amos & The Foot

My name is Amos. That is my foot. On my daddy's pillow. I am not a big fan of sleeping in my crib. Really, I just don't like sleeping by myself. My mom and dad don't relish sleeping with me though. I don't know why. I may be a teensy bit squirmy. My mom says I may have won a few battles, but she is going to win the war. I'm not so sure about that. I'm awfully perseverant. Not to mention, very cute. I can't help it if I get lonel ..
