The kids have been saying some funny things recently.


"I don't want to be a grown up because the Easter Bunny doesn't give baskets to grown ups."

Deep Thought:
I couldn't go to sleep last night. I had a scary thought.

me: what did you think about?

I was thinking I was going to die.

Me: What? Why were you thinking about that sweetie?

I don't know. It just popped into my head.

I was coming home today and had to laugh at how different my two 'worlds' are. In my work world, at 4:30, I was finishing up a meeting about TANF legislation. By 5:10, I was greeted by my son who was wearing a blue skirt. He yelled:

MOM! I am wearing high heels!!

The dance party began shortly thereafter.

Funny take two:
Wyeth is allowed to eat two gummy vitamins. We watched him eat them both. He went back for vitamins 3 and 4. When we admonished him, he said that he hadn't eaten them. "Where they go?"

Buddy, they are in your belly! You ate them.

"I eat them? Where?" He then proceeded to pick up his shirt and look in earnest for the missing vitamins.

Two year olds and five year olds? They rock. It isn't going to be this funny again. And so many daily things are just MAGICAL at this age. I hope my children always have a sense of wonder and enthusiasm. I just don't think it will be this natural.
