Cute Kid Story  
Here's the transcript from the car after we dropped Ethan off for school.

(At rise:  Dreary, cloudy morning; a few small raindrops hit the windsheild of the car.)

Aaron.  Hey, Mom?

Me.  Yeah?

Aaron.  Is the rain God's spit?

Me.  (tries not to laugh) Erm, no, actually, I'm pretty sure that God lets the rain clouds fill up with water, and then when they get too heavy, the rain comes down out of them.

Aaron.  (ponders a bit)  No, I'm pretty sure it's the spit.


Fine.  I gave a quasi-scientific answer, and he chooses to think his own thing, which I sincerely hope is not true.  Maybe he'll beleive Ethan when he gets home from school, or perhaps he'll have to wait til he reads the part about the water cycle in the Lemony Snicket books.  I tried.

Have I ever told you that Aaron (5) always opens doors for me?  The car door, the front door, doors to stores;  he's very chivalrous, and likes to take care of me.  It almost makes up for me catching him mushing clay into the antique rug in the living room. (But it makes a cool pattern, see?)  Almost. 

We're going to the drive -in to see Spider-Man 3 tonight!  Yay!

I love the logic of little ones *giggles* He's such the little gentleman! But clay into the rug *yikes*

Yes, the reason he's still alive is that I got most of the clay out, and it's a fairly busy pattern, so it doesn't show much. Little stinker.

I have a few spots like that too - a large coffee table is a blessing ;)

Honestly, Mom, don't you know anything? Tee hee. I love little kids. They have the greatest explanations.

I believe him. God's spit IS a way cooler answer! ;)

A little late but wanted to comment. Your son's a smart cookie. Oh didn't know the drive in was open yet. We've not gone but thought about it alot. Maybe will see HP there?

My son thinks he's smater than he really is. :)

I love the drive-in, but I don't think I'll be able to wait til Tascosa gets it to see HP. Hubby and I usually go opening night. Spider-Man was pretty good, but we almost froze to death Fri. Night!

He uses the word "famished". He wins forever.
