This morning after running errands, Davis was sitting in the backseat reading a book when he said rather sadly, "I wish I was young again." He's 4.
I asked how young did he want to be and he said: 1.
Me: Why 1?
Davis: Because it's more fun when you're 1.
Me: How so? Aren't you having fun now?
Davis: No. Too many errands.
Here's some other things the boys have said lately...
Conversation with Trevor on the way home from school yesterday…
T: Mom, when I grow up and move out, I’ll meet you all the time.
Me: Of course! I’d love that.
T: We can eat if you want.
Me: Sure, we’ll go to lunch. Where should we go?
T: We can go anywhere because when I’m all grown I will like all the vegetables and fruits
Me: Really? Even broccoli?
T: Yes and radishes too
Me: You know, Davis tried a radish yesterday and he liked it, you should try one and see if you like it
T: OK. It’s got apple skin and onion inside
Me: Does it? I didn’t know!
When we got home, Gma asked me when Trev’s next vacation from school,
he said: Saturday and Sunday.
Dave: Hey Trev, the Phillies are playing the Rockies
Trev: Go Rockies!
Dave: Do you know what Phillies are?
Trev: It’s what you put in donuts.
Conversations with Davis
D: Someday can we go to Texas?
Me: Sure, honey. Why do you want to go to Texas?
D: To pet horses. Because there’s horses in Texas.
Me: That’s right! There are horses in Texas. There’s horses here, too. Did you know that?
D: (pauses to really ponder this) Well… the really good ones are in Texas
Davis came into the bathroom while I was using it. This happens all the time but if I'm doing more then just peeing I tell him to beat it because I need a privacy (which is what the boys say when they want to be alone, "I need a privacy". Or in Davie's case, "I need a piracy.").
Davis said: No. I'm going to stay to help you.
Me: Thanks, but I'm OK.
Davis: No. You need help.
Me: Kid, you have no idea...
So he stayed. Sat on the floor and read a book. sigh.
Still laughing, Ruth!
