--Cr & I were sitting on the couch talking. M came up to us, very distressed and complaining about something. Before we could figure out what was wrong, J came running up and said:
"Oh, here's your toothbrush, M. I couldn't find mine, so I just used yours".
--At dinner the other night, Z was eating his fruit salad with his fingers. I told him to use his fork.
Z: "It doesn't work."
Mommy: "So get a spoon."
Z: "That won't work, either."
Mommy: "That's why you need to practice. You need to use your fork to eat your salad."
Z (very frustrated): "I've been practicing for 4 years! And it still doesn't work!".
--Cr had a talk with the older two boys about the birds and the bees. I wasn't home at the time, but Cr told me he'd had a talk with them. I asked him how the boys handled the information, and was told that at the end of the discussion L said, "Ok. But you know, we probably won't think about this a lot for awhile. We've got other things to think about....you know...toys, books...video games..."
--At the dinner table the other night I said "I need to blog that".
L: "What's a blog?
Daddy: "It's where Mommy posts all you boys' most embarrassing moments for the world to read".
(L looks at Z with his eyebrows raised, and they both start laughing)
L (looking serious): What is it really, Dad?
Heh, heh, heh.
