High Five

June 5, 2016

My kids turn five on Tuesday.

There have been some rocky times around here, behavior-wise.  We’re working on things.  Like anger management.  Like impulse control.  Like “the grown-ups are actually in charge here.”

I asked the kids what they wanted on their birthday cakes. Their answers are highly indicative of their personalities.

Yesterday and today got a lot better.  Here are some gems:

  • Theresa:  Mama!  I made you a fruit salad [drawing].  It has spinach, chocolate, strawberries, and blueberries.
  • On Jamie getting excited about various forms of transportation:  Audrey, sighing:  “My brother.  The elevator man.”
  • Alan imitating Theresa, who mispronounces “hoisin”:  “Would you like some ha-wa-zin?”  Jamie:  “It’s wa-zin.  The H is silent.”

And finally, a conversation in the car:

Jamie:  I have two god-dads. [Uncle Jeff and Uncle Colin]

Theresa:  Jamie, when you say ‘god-dad,’ you really mean ‘godfather,’ right?

Audrey:  It’s okay to say god-dad in the house, but in public it’s more polite to say godfather.
