Melting Away

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

I was playing with my 2-week-old son on his play mat when he started to spit up a little. My 4-year-old saw the white spit on his cheek and said to me, “Mom! The baby is melting!”

Crab Invasion

Monday, August 18th, 2014

My son came running into the room, yelling, “There are crabs upstairs!”

I replied, “You mean pretend crabs?”

He said, “No, real crabs!”  so I played along, acting nervous about the real crabs. Finally, he shouted, “Yeah, I’m pretending there are real crabs upstairs!”

My son was playing with some toy trains. He was connecting them all together when he exclaimed, “Oh no! This rug has no tracks.”

Traffic Jam

My son was playing with his cars on the kitchen floor while I made dinner. He lined them up in a row. I casually asked him what he was doing and he replied, “Making traffic.”

Time for Trouble

Monday, April 28th, 2014

I told my son that it was time to take a nap.  He ran and hid in his big brother’s room and began playing with the Lego set that he had been asked not to touch.  I stood in the hallway and asked, “What are you doing, Miles?”  Without missing a beat, he replied, “I am making a bad choice.”
