Just a few conversations, or snippets of, from around our home today:
Between me and my oldest son:
Me: Why are you only wearing one sock?
Son: Cause this is my peg leg!
Of course. How silly of me.
Between me and my oldest son, again:
Me: Can you hear your teacher when she's talking to the class?
Son: Yes. Well, sometimes no. I was at the back table and she was in the front talking. I could not hear what she was saying then. The boy next to me leaned over and said "What did she say?", and so I said "fishing rods."
Between my husband and I:
Him: $$$ at Ralph Lauren?! For three shirts?! That's ridiculous!
Me: No, not three shirts! Don't be crazy.
Him: You said they were $14 a piece.
Me: No, I said the one he begged for was only $14, so I let him get it.
Him: How much were the other 2?
Me: There were more than 3 shirts! He got 4 shirts, and the baby got a monogrammed onesie polo and some pants.
Him: So you got 4 shirts and a baby outfit for $$$?!
Me: Do you expect me to have itemized list of the shit I buy stored in my brain for weeks in case you quiz me about it later? I can't remember every little thing. I do a lot of shit.
Him: Well do less expensive shit.
Between the baby and I:
Me: Do you want some more peas?
I know it's not funny, but it's the first time he's clearly said "Yes", so Huzzah!
