We Couldn't Make This Stuff Up.

How a 2 (1/2) year old explains 'gas':

"Mama, there's fire in my butt."

*****
T's love affair with the school nurse:

"T, your lips are getting chapped, why don't you put some chapstick on?" Me.

"Oh no, that's ok." T.

"Here T, here's some chapstick." J.

"No thanks, I'll just go to the nurse later."

******

H, on taking a nap:

"I'm all done napping, Mama."

Thirty minutes after I put him down and every fifteen thereafter. Today. At the two and a half hour mark, I believed him.

*****

T, learning responsibility:

"You forgot to turn in my homework!" T to me.

He didn't really like my response when I informed him that I graduated college five years ago, ending my homework career.

*****

Sibling love:

"M, don't you have any kindness in your heart?" T

"Yeah, I have kindness but only a little bit for you." M

*****

And H, who is teaching us that he too can use our words:

"Are you being a good listener, Mama?"

"Do you need a time out, Daddy?"

"Eat your dinner."

"Five more minutes and that's it." (Can also be interchanged with one more snack instead of minutes.)

*****

We are truly living a comedy around here.

This puts it all into perspective. It's nice to hear about life from another viewpoint. :)

I hadn't read you in a while - you look amazing! And I can't wait for "her" to arrive (heehee).
And to add to your comedy I found a barrett on my 2 years old's rear end while changing a diaper today.
