Can't stop lauging at him!

It's 2 AM and I am up yet again. I don't think I have gotten a full nights sleep in over a week. However, tonight I have company and he is very entertaining. Ruben has joined me and he is cracking me up. Maybe it's lack of sleep and I am just delirious. He is playing with his Lego's and building star wars fighters and being his silly little self. Star Wars, that is his new thing. He is obsessed with it. He seems to think it is some special holiday because he did not get in trouble for getting up. He actually got up to go pee and made me laugh. So I guess he thought that was a free pass to get up again as long as he continued to make me laugh.

It must be the excitement of getting a lightsaber tomorrow. We made a deal that if he pooped in the potty and not his underwear he would get a lightsaber. He has been peeing in the potty and wearing underwear since the beginning of December, but has only started pooping in the potty since we made that deal yesterday. I explained to him that after he gets the lightsaber he has to continue to use the potty or it will be taken from him. He seems to understand this. After all, this is pretty much the same kind of deal I made with him to get him to start wearing underwear and peeing in the potty. It just involved his smart cycle.

Well, I'm off to get my silly little guy in bed. He is so wound up, I'm not sure how I am gonna do that. He keeps saying "Holy hoke a hoggie," I have no idea where that came from but is very funny at 3 AM.
Oh how I love that little guy!
