Breakfast Convo

Henry: Mommy, I'm a boy and you're a girl.

Me: You're right.

Henry: And some people are big and some people are small.

Me: You're right.

Henry: And we don't talk about how big people's bums are.

Me: You're right, honey.

Henry: Look at me, Mommy. Look at what I'm doing.

Me: (Looking at him doing nothing but looking back at me) What are you doing?

Henry: Look at me. I'm not saying "sucks."

Me: (Turning my face so he can't see me laughing. Speechless).

Henry: Mommy, I'm not saying "sucks" because it's rude and inappropriate.


(Did I mention how much I'm learning from my kids?)

I think Henry and Svea should write a book. Definitely. And illustrate it.

Casey - can't wait to see you!

Did you ever hear Eric Clapton's song, "Livin on Tulsa Time"? You would rewrite it, Livin on Toddler time. A sure hit.

I say "sucks" all the time! Does that mean I'm rude and inappropriate? And how the heck does he know the word "inappropriate"??? In the interest of full disclosure, I once told Arwyn that her attitude sucked. Awesome parenting moment.
