Half-pint Makes Me Laugh...
I really enjoyed a conversation Half-pint and I had in the car today. Here's a little bit of it:
"Mom, I want to go to Mexico."
"We don't have any trips planned to Mexico, but we are going to the beach soon, remember?"
"Mom, you ever been to Mexico?"
"Yep, remember last time I left you and Quarter-pint at Grandma's house for a few days? Daddy and I went to Mexico."
"When I was a baby you went to Mexico, and left me with Grandma? I want to go to Mexico! Scooby-Doo goes to Mexico in my DVD movie."
...Trying a different approach because I could sense he was pretty serious about going to Mexico...
"Mexico is really far away-you have to take an airplane."
"What about night-night? Are there beds on airplanes?"
"You have to sleep in the chair?!? That's crazy!"
This morning, I came downstairs from brushing my teeth and found Half-pint in the family room with a surprise for me.
"Look Mom, I have new underpants---light-up underpants!"
Sure enough, he was wearing Daddy's head lamp like a pair of underpants. Thankfully he still had on his own underpants and his pajama shorts! What a kid!
(Sorry, I couldn't resist taking a picture!)
