Hey A, what was the best thing about your day?
Dinner time, conversation and confusion.
Little A – Hey Mom, remember that time that they stuck a thing up my nose and touched my brain?
Mom – What?
A – Remember that stick thing
M – No? I don’t have any idea what you are talking about.
A – Remember that time I was 3 and you took me to the doctor and they stuck a stick up my nose, and then they said you should give me a milk shake?
R – looking at me mirroring the confused face I had.
M- oh! that time in kindergarten that you were so very sick, (so very sick) they did a flu test, and you fell asleep before we left, when we got in the car, then holding your C-F-A milkshake in your hand, only to come home and sleep more. (she was so very sick for 6 weeks, it was scary, and not the flu)
R – I never got a milk shake when I had the flu test…
What was your best thing about today?
Little A – PE, we had to run laps in the gym because it rained during Mile Monday. We had to run laps, in the gym, the first 2 laps were all good (with a thumbs up) but during the 3rd lap I fell, but I did not get a floor burn. After that we did this thing where you push up with your head. (showing us on the dining room floor, it was actually a sit-up) and then we broke into 2 teams. It was fun but not as fun as throwing things out of the trash can.
Mom – WHAT?
Little A – you know that grumpy guy who throws trash.
Mom – No, go back, were you throwing actual trash?
Little A – no mom, we were only preTENding! I was the trash can, not the ACTUAL trash can, and KC and I were throwing out the balls they threw at us.
While walking through the school parking lot there was a SUV next to my van, it had a very large amount of bird poop on the window. PS looked at it, asking me what it was, I said poop. She gave the most disgusted face and asked “who does that?” I answered her, not people honey, birds. Birds poop on cars. She declared that disgusting. And was annoyed by birds in general for the next five minutes.
Go hug your kids, and listen to their stories, they always have something surprising to say!
