Finger's Crossed

I've mentioned before about Alex crossing his fingers
when he's anxious.  He's crosses his fingers at 
the doctor's office....


Or when the morning routine is different before school,
like a 2 hour delay or if we're ready a bit early and 
have to wait a few minutes before leaving....


But sometimes he crosses them for luck, as in this case...
When he's hoping I'll say that he can have seconds
on pizza!  He even closed his eyes as if in prayer
that more pizza would appear on his favorite
blue plastic plate. ha.


And in this case, it was double fingers crossed...
for double luck!  :)

  5. This is such a cute story about how to get extra pizza. And how could anyone resist giving it to him. I love how you notice all of their different quirks and habits. It is fun reading about them too. Children are such a blessing.

    God bless.

    1. I'm sure it has to do with them being non-verbal. I have to read body language a lot of time to get a picture of what's going on. They ask for things...food, a toy, dvd, help with something, but to convey emotion or if they are sick or worried, they don't know how to do that so well. But Alex is very consistent with the finger crossing for being anxious or worried. In this case..worried he wouldn't get more pizza. lol....

  7. I used to do that too. I used to also pinch myself when I had to ask my grandpa a question, like when I wanted that old antique clock in the attic. I thought if the pinch already hurt, it wouldn't hurt so much when he yelled at no to me! hahahahaha. I did get the old clock though, when I got older. My Grandpa always said 'no' first to anything asked. hahahahaha

  12. Haha, very sweet! :)

    It's cute that he crosses his fingers when he is anxious, too, as if it will bring good luck to make the bad thing go away. Maybe I should get my son to do that!

  14. That's so cute. I remember hopping up and down on one foot when I was hoping my mom would say yes about something. I don't know why I did that, but it apparently made me feel like it increased my chances. :)

  15. I hope he was able to conjour up seconds on pizza! And that's a pretty safe way for him to express his anxiety. Such a cute Story!

  16. It suddenly occurred to me I should cross my fingers a bit more often. It might help... Hope you're doing fine, Betsy :)

  17. Ah, did it work? I might try it.
