In order to get the attention of my children down in the basement, I stomp my foot four times. Usually they come quickly running up, with a "Yes Mom what do you need.?", Really they do.
Well today, and actually last week, Eric asked T-Rex to go get his brother and sisters for dinner. T-Rex said "Yesh" and then with his tiny little leg stomps four time all the while shouting "Dinner."
Eric and I just laughed at him. I guess he is paying attention.
