'I Wan Do Dat'

This is Ethan's newest phrase. Whatever he sees, he wants to do. Nothing is too big or too small. One minute it's sports related and the next it's something he saw on a movie. My favorite happened the other night. You've read my post about his obsession with Wall-E? Well, let me give you a little background just in case you haven't seen the movie (which is super cute). Wall-E is a trash compacting robot left on Earth to clean up the humans mess while they live in space. He scoops large amounts of trash into his belly and it comes out in a nice square. Sometimes he'll find something that he just can't bear to compact and he puts it into a little ice chest. When it's quitting time, he slings his ice chest on his back and takes it home with him where he adds the contents to a huge collection of junk. it? In our car is a little ice chest like Wall-E's. On the way home from lunch the other day, Ethan grabbed the ice chest and said 'Mommy I wan do dat like Waww-E' (his e's sound like w's). It was too cute. I guess I need to bring the ice chest in and see what 'treasures' he finds around the house.
