I was just meandering around blog world & happened upon this fun idea for a Tuesday post! I need me some fun after feeling yucky as of late, & you may get a chuckle (at my expense on this one) out of it! The idea is to share one of "those moments".
Last year, we were sitting at the table for dinner as a family. As usual, we were trying to get some details out of the kids about their day. Normally with Kade, this is like pulling teeth, but he was most excited to share.
Turns out, for their writing assignment they were to write about something they thought was funny. Well, that sounds fun. "What'd you write about, bud?"
Kade, with a little giggle, "I wrote about the time we were having hamburgers. Remember, Dad said, 'Our grocery store has the best buns.' And Mom said, 'Well, I thought I had the best buns!'"
Me (choking), "You wrote about THAT!?"
Kade, "Yeah, it's hanging out in the hall for parent-teacher conferences." By now, the other kids are in full-blown hysterics over the genius of their little brother.
Note to self: Think first, then speak. They may not remember what you told them to do 5 minutes ago, but they remember EVERYTHING else.
