Through the eyes of a child...

Sometimes it is just damn funny the things that kids say... and just when you think they never listen to ANYTHING you say..ever... it shows up. Here are a few funny moments from the past couple of days...

(As Shay and I are riding our bikes to school)
1. Shay: "Isn't this great? We are doing two things at once. Exercising and helping the environment! We should ride more and drive your big car less, mom." (out of the mouths of babes..)

2. Coming to a screeching halt on our bikes as a roadblock of kids has formed on the sidewalk. Everyone is huddled up and peering at the ground. My first thought was, "uh oh, somebody bit it!" As we got closer, everyone was watching the BIGGEST, FUZZIEST, black, spikey caterpillar cross the sidewalk. After the friend made it safely to the other side, there were murmurs of "Cool!" "That caterpillar was HUGE!" "Awesome!" (it was kinda cool actually....)

3. Upon hearing that I remembered to buy bologna from the store and was making him a bologna sandwich for his lunch box, Shay's response: "This is going to be the best day EVER!" (ah...the simple things in life...)

4. After fending off repeated attacks from his little brother Devon, Shay exclaimed "Devon! You need to treat others how you want to be treated yourself!" (how does he match the same tones and inflections I use so well???)

5. Shay: "How come moms are always cleaning up?" (damn good question...)

6. After having my hair done by the wonderful folks at JR Salon, I went to pick up Devon from school. His response, "ooooohhhhh Mommy! You brushed your hair!" (hmmmm...maybe I've been wearing ponytails and caps too much lately...)
