Alden has a new saying -- "pan in the face" -- he says it whenever he does something embarrassing or something he shouldn't do. It's hilarious. He was setting the table the other day and he forgot to put spoons on the table. I mentioned this to him and he said, "oh, pan in the face!" We believe he made it up after watching a cartoon of a character getting hit by a pan in the face. Picture Bugs Bunny. It's ingenious and now we all say it.
He also punctuates his own actions with narrative. I'll say, "Alden, I've told you THREE times to go get your pajamas on. Go!" He'll respond, "POOF!" and stick out his arms and then run out of the room.
