The Boys' Bath

I was bathing the boys this morning, and Jax poured some water down Reed's back. The water was a tad too warm, and Reed said, "Ow! Jax, would you please not do that?" And Jax said, "Okay," and actually stopped doing it! Reed, surprised as I was, said, "Mom, he stopped. That was nice of him!" I said, "Yeah! And you asked him so nicely, too." Reed said, "He's my brother. How would I not say it nicely?" :) Then, as I was drying him off, he gave me a warm, damp hug and said, "I love you. You're the best." I said, "You're the best." He said, "We both are." I said, "Okay." Then he said, "You're my mom. And you're not crazy."

For all the five times I sneezed this morning, Jaxon said, "Bess you." Then when I was filling up a bath, intending only to put Reed in it, he said, "Need baff??" in this plaintive little voice.
