I just realized that this was my due date 8 years ago. It seems like so much more and so much less than that.
"Can you actually take pictures with this phone?"
"No, dude, that's a cordless phone, not a cell phone."
"I know, but it says 'flash'."
Every day is funnier than the one before with this kid.
"Gold is kind of rare, but you could find it at beaches. Pirates went to beaches in their ships a lot, so they could have buried it there, or just dropped some coins. But did you know that the sea is constantly pushing sand up to the beach? That could make the treasure go deeper and deeper. So you have to dig for like a week to find any gold. Or more than a week. Like two weeks. Probably more."
Anyone else have a kid who never stops talking (usually about random things)?
Easy like Sunday morning...
(Now let's be real. This is unusual. 5 minutes ago he was wrestling with his brother, loudly. They finished a box of Lucky Charms between the 2 of them in the last 24 hours. And, those are the pillows that no smelly boys or dogs are supposed to lay on ;))
As I'm prepping dinner...
"Is that what we're having?"
"Yes, we're having a plate of cheese." (sarcasm)
"YES! That's my dream dinner."
Ya' can't make this stuff up.
"I wish you would be a good listener."
"You just told your wish, so now it won't come true."
Well played, kid.
Sooo, what's the correct answer? Maybe it's my slight Philly accent, but none of these share the same 'a' sound as 'sale'.
Unless you pronounce 'sale' like the name 'Sal', it doesn't share the sound with 'sad' (which I think is what they consider correct). 'Basket' or 'sand' has the same 'a' sound, to me.
I have a kid here playing Wii baseball and singing country songs-- full with southern accent-- in boxer briefs and socks.
