I know the Boy gets featured around here a lot, but let's face it: with both girls at school most of the day he's the guy I get to spend the most time with. He's also at an age where he just comes out with the funniest stuff. Here are a couple of Holiday doozies:
1. Christmas morning, I'm awakened (awoke? awaked? english is wierd) by loud cries of excitement. It's 5:30 and the kids are not only up, they've slipped past us and gone down to check out the tree. Since Hubby and I only got to bed at around 2:30, I go herd them up and back to bed. The Boy is elbow deep in his stocking and most excited about the pterodactyl puppet at the top. Mean Mom that I am, I make him leave it all behind as I send him back to bed. For the next 20 minutes he mutters at me from his room. The only thing I can make out is the oft-repeated "Poor, poor Petrie".
(maybe only funny if you've been forced to watch The Land Before Time as often as I have).
(I just spell checked and the computer says I got pterodactyl right! On the first try! Whoot!)
2. Having gotten a Webkinz Clown Fish from Grandma, he immediately tells me that its name is "Gloo".
"Glue?" I ask. "Because fish are sticky?" I'm so confused.
"NO! Gloo!" he hollers "Because that's what fish SAY--gloo, gloo, gloo"
So glad he cleared that one up for me.
