Heard From the Backseat

Caution - childrenJamie and Cassie are starting to be obsessed with language idioms. I blame a book we got in for review called The One and Only Sam and Tom shared a few with them.

This morning, we were in the drop off line behind a daycare van and this was the conversation from the backseat:

Jamie: “Caution – Children”

Me: “Yup, it’s a daycare bus”

Jamie: “Yeah, cuz kids can be kinda dangerous, ya know!”

Cassie: “You never know what kids will do, look out, mom!”

Yeah, I’m easily amused.

Heard from the Backseat… Telephone

My fave boy...I just got a phone call:

Me: “Hello?”

Caller: “It’s me, Jamie. I don’t have my binder.”

Me: “Okay, what’s in your bookbag then?”

Jamie: “Oh, it’s fully of Cassie’s dirty clothes.”

Me: *blink* “Um, okay, let me finish my shower and I’ll bring your binder if I can find it”

Jamie: “Okay, thanks Mommy, you’re the best!”

I want to ask why the heck he has Cassie’s dirty clothes in his backpack. They didn’t go on a sleepover together or anything. But I’m afraid of whatever strange answer those two would come up with. In the meantime, I cannot find his binder and my hair is soaking wet (worked out today with Chris over at Libra Fitness so I was nasty – shower much needed TYVM). Sigh. When is this whole Mommy thing over?
