I doubt I'll ever forget this stage with James - but should my memory start to crumble - I want to be able to recall James in all his silly and funny glory.
Whenever James does something - oh - anything - whether it be good or bad, naughty or nice - his standard answer is:
"because I did."
It's so funny to see him say it - with his quirky smile and his twinkling eyes - especially when it's something really naughty that he's done. At least he doesn't lie - yet - he willing fesses up to his crimes.
"James, why did you hit your sister over the head with a book?"
(hear Anna wailing nearby)
James looks up - smiles his silly smile - tilts his head - then puts on a pouty face - and says
"Because I did."
Okay then. Glad we got that straight.
