Many a day goes by where I sincerely wish that I could get a transcript of our conversations at home. Each of our kids are in such a delightful stage! I would, of course, cut out all the whining and arguing and keep stuff like this ...
Emma On Kindergarten (which starts tomorrow... gulp!):
[What I thought Emma said] “I’m gonna look for people who are lonely and scare them...”
[What she really said] “I’m gonna look for people who are lonely and scared and be their friend.”
(Phew! That’s much better!)
Emma: “Will there be math in Kindergarten?”
Emma: “Oh, good! Math is my favorite category!”
Eliana on the death of her parents: “Who’s gonna get Rosetta Stone Spanish when you die? Can you put it in your will for me?” (Evidently it's a hit!)
Easton, holding a can strainer up to his ear: “Hehwo?” (All the cell phones in the room were currently being used.)
Easton, counting straws enthusiastically: “B! O! I! D!” (He gets the idea of counting, but hasn’t figured out the difference between letters and numbers).
And then there was Easton, struck speechless in the grocery store parking lot as a semi truck drove by close enough to see the driver. The driver noticed him frozen there, waved, and then honked (REALLY LOUD!). That was the highlight of the morning. Somehow I don’t remember this stage with the girls!
