This morning, Radar (age 10) woke me up at 3:30, 4:30, and 5:45 to tell me he couldn't sleep. Then, at 6:15 he came in and told me I really shouldn't be pressing the snooze button because it's not healthy.
My kids are a lot older than they were when I first started this blog, so they don't say as many unintentionally funny things as they used to, but they still make me laugh every day.
Every once in a while though, we have a conversation that I just know I ought to write down.
The other day, Radar told me all about tetherball: "Tetherball is a game where the ball is tied to a pole and you throw it around. One time I threw it and it hit me in the head. I don't play tetherball anymore."
This morning, Superman was playing with a toy phone and accidentally dropped it. I looked up, startled, as it landed on the floor with a clattering sound. He looked at me sheepishly and quickly said, "Uh, Mom. That was not noise."
Radar is very excited about the upcoming holiday season and all of the traditions that come along with it. Today he had a hard time remembering the words "advent calendar". So he made up his own name for it: "The Chocolate Countdown."
Come to think of it, I kind of like his name better.
