Slices of Life, Vol. 2

Riding in the car to Costco yesterday:

Nathaniel: Mommy, it's Too Bright. I need my sunglasses.

Me: Well, they should be in your bucket, buddy. Reach over and get them.

Nathaniel: I caaaannnn't. You get them. [pause] Please.

Me: [reaching FAR back while driving] I can't reach them, buddy. My arms aren't long enough. See? The sunglasses are WAY back there. I'll get them for you when we stop at Costco.

Nathaniel: [sulky, no response]

One minute later:

Nathaniel: Mommy, roll up my window. It's too wiiiinnndy. My hair is blowing.

Me: You can roll it up, buddy. Lean forward and press your button to
roll it up.

Nathaniel: I can't reeeeeach it. My arms are too short. [accusingly] LIKE YOURS.


Nathaniel singing his "ABCDs"

A B C D E S G H I J K Elmo P Q R S T U V Dudda-boo X Y N Z, now I know my ABCs, nexx time won't you sing wiff ME!!!!


Me: Nathaniel, what were your favorite animals at the circus?

Nathaniel: The motorcycles.

Me: I'm glad you liked the motorcycles, but they're not animal
s. Which ANIMALS were your favorites.

Nathaniel: Elephants. But also the motorcycles.


Nicholas was chasing Nathaniel around the den during the same week he came home with two incident reports for biting children at school. Nathaniel, no dummy, was trying to stay out of his reach, yelling, "No biting, Nick-Nick!!! No biting!!!"

I said, "Nathaniel, he's not going to bite you." And Nathaniel said, "Well, HE'S GONNA TRY!"

What i do not realize is actually how you're now not actually a lot more neatly-appreciated than you may be now. You're very
intelligent. You already know thus considerably on the subject of this matter,
produced me in my opinion imagine it from so
many varied angles. Its like women and men don't seem to be fascinated unless it's one thing to accomplish with Lady gaga!
Your individual stuffs nice. Always care for it up!
