Rather than recreate cycle of the weekend, here are the highlights that help explain the world I live in:
C (age 7): Dad, I’m bored!
Dad: Only boring people get bored.
M (age 5): Yeah, I’m bored too. Can I play Wii?
Dad: No, you played Wii all morning.
C: Can we play outside?
M: Yeah! Can we play outside? (mind you, they’re already putting on their jackets…)
Dad: Sure, just be careful. And no wrestling, the ground may still be wet.
C: Can we rake?
M: He said rake. Can we get the rakes and rake the front yard?
C: Dad, are you crying?
Mom: Stop goofing around. Listen to the priest, or listen to the choir.
C: The what?
Mom: The choir, signing in back.
*C looks long and hard at the choir loft*
C: Mom, that’s not a choir, those are just humans.
*man sitting in row behind tries not to guffaw*
Mom: What do you think a choir is?
C: Mom, a choir is a kind of alien, those are just people singing.
*the boys have gone for haircuts, mom is off for some well deserved mom-time*
Girl cutting my hair (to M): Did you get a lot of candy
M: Oh yeah, we have two buckets!
Girl: Oh wow. What’s your favorite kind?
M: I like everything except Milky Ways.
Dad: You don’t like Milky Ways?
M: Nope, yuck.
Dad: Well, you can give them to me. I like them.
M: You like Milky Ways?
Dad: Yup, I’m not picky.
M: Hah! *increase volume to store filling levels* Daddy is a piggy! He’s eating all my Halloween candy!
So, how was your weekend?
