Noodle Boy is a nickname my son had when he was a tiny guy and I started this blog. His nickname changes all the time. (Don't worry, we keep his real name the same.) He is completely awesome. Read on and see for yourself!

Dramatic re-enactment.

Yesterday Jon was helping me put away groceries and he dropped a can on his toe. I'm sure it hurt very much, as it left a tiny black bruise under his tiny little nail on his big fat toe. There was lots of crying and pointing, it was very traumatic for him. So traumatic, in fact, that he had to re-enact the whole incident for his dad using an empty yogurt container for the can; a stuffed cat played the part of Jon.

Jon put the cat on the floor in the middle of the kitchen, paw exposed. Then walks up to the cat, slams the yogurt cup onto the paw while pointing to his own wounded toe and with wide eyes he says to his dad, "BOOM, " which is also what he said after the can hit his foot earlier.

I'm not sure if he was expecting an award for that performance or what but he did a fantasic job of telling the story. It was a very moving piece.
