Lots of Bodies

Overheard on the way to Nathan's Pre-K.

Nathan: "See that?" *points to the cemetery as we drive by* "There are BODIES in there."

Noah: *surprised gasp* (This in itself had me laughing inwardly.) Then a comforting "That's okaaay."

Nathan: "It's NOT okay! People DIED! From our TOWN!!"

I wish I had real life DVR so I could rewind and see the expressions on their faces as they had this passionate discussion. Is there anything cuter than a 4 year old and a (nearly) 3 year old having a serious discussion? Probably not.

Questions are Good, Right?

It's school time again and Nathan is attending Pre-Kindergarten this year. Yesterday, his first day went so well that he claimed he wasn't ready for us to pick him up yet. Apparently we were NOT missed. Nathan said he did spinning and crocodiling (which he demonstrated for us).

This morning as we were getting ready for his second day of school I had him sit on a chair so that I could tie his shoes for him. It was then that he asked me, "Why do you have big chestses?" I quickly ruled out answering "Because I'm a girl" since he sees a lot of little girls without "big chestes" and didn't want to have more questions this morning about why they don't and, well.... I just said, "Because I'm a mommy." That line works for so much!

If you are having a hard time figuring out what "chestses" means, just remove the double plural and you'll get down to the root word. Okay? Okay.

P.S. Don't worry. We'll work on correct terms and pluralizing another day.
