Hope you get your smile on—it’s all about Rocco today.
1. Sunday morning:
Rocco: Dad, I want my orange train that’s in my room but Vincenzo’s still sleeping in there.
K: You can go in there as long as you’re quiet.
R: Oh! Okay!
Rocco heads into bedroom
R: VINCENZO! DAD SAYS IT’S OKAY FOR ME TO COME IN HERE AS LONG AS I’M QUIET!
2. This next conversation happened after we drove by a sign similar to this one:
Rocco: Mom, what does B-O-W-L spell?
Rocco: Then they must sell a lot of bowls there!
3. This conversation came from the next picture:
Rocco: Look, Mom. The time is J:1J!
(He also saw Vincenzo’s name on a paper and told me, “Vincenzo is spelled V-I-N-C-6-N-Z-0.”
4. Rocco, eating lemon gelato: Sometimes eating makes you sad.
Me: It makes you sad?
R: Yeah, like when you’re eating something really yummy and then it’s all gone.
5. Rocco, trying his best to look nice for Christmas photos:
