He Said What?

Bill Cosby used to host the TV show Kids Say The Darndest Things. With this boy, it feels like I'm living that show. Even when his language was limited, he would come up with stuff that just made me laugh (remember the truck and the butt?). I thought I'd share some of that with you.

- I was going around the house singing, probably without even realizing it, when the boy, who was watching TV, says: "Mommy, don't sing. Go computer time."

- We were in the car when he said he wanted music. I put a CD in but he said: "Not that Mom, he reigns". I was confused as I did not know what he was referring to. He kept on repeating it so I kept on skipping the songs until I came to this one. He stopped asking. It was then I realized what he meant. You have to listen to the song in the video below so you'll know what I'm talking about, ;)





This is my favorite, for now.

- I was preparing my post for Special Exposure Wednesday when he came up to me and said: "Mama, your breast is big. Mine is little."

What made you smile/laugh recently?

First Day Of School

The boy has been asking about school for a couple of weeks now. Not surprisingly, he was so excited about today.

Here he is looking for the bus.


When he couldn't find it there, he tried the other side.


Did school start for your kids already or are you still enjoying summer?

The Birthday Boy

The boy celebrated his 8th birthday. It started with him finding a feather in the parking lot, which for some reason, he was absolutely delighted with. He wanted to find the bird to give its feather back.


As he requested, he had pizza with his friends in daycare.The highlight was the blowing of the candles on his Cars cake, which he chose himself, by the way.When I picked him up, he had another request, Red Robin for dinner. We capped the day with the opening of presents. By this time, he wanted me to stop taking pictures already, :)
