Well, today is 4’s birthday. Making him 4 no longer, but a big, huge 5! Are you getting that? My youngest child, my baby, is now a 5-year-old and will soon be in kindergarten!! Damn. Way to make your mom feel old, kid!
Anyway, because today is 5’s special day, I decided to dedicate an entire “Convos with” post to him. And since it’s been many months since I’ve posted one of these, I have plenty of material just from him, trust me!
5: You know what’s inside pyramids?
Me: No, what?
Me: Oh yeah?
5: Yeah, you know how mummies hide inside pyramids, and then when people walk by, they jump out and scare them?
Me: Um, sure. Why not?
(Annnnddddd, cancelling my trip to Egypt, now).
5: I wish my name was Fisafer.
5: No, FIS-a-FER.
5: Because I like that MUCH better than my name now!
(Everyone’s a critic).
Me: When you finish dinner, we will watch the Disney World video.
5: I bet Mickey Mouse will be on the video!
Me: Yeah, I’m pretty sure you WILL see Mickey on the Disney video.
5: That’s because Mickey is the BOSS of Disney World!!
5: Do we get presents on Green Patrick’s Day?
Me: You had a cookie? But you don’t LIKE cookies!! (Said dripping with sarcasm).
5: YES I DO!!
Me: No WAY! Since when?
5: Well, I like candy! Even though it sometimes feels all gloppy in my throat, I still like it.
Hubs: What’s the difference between a chicken finger and a chicken nugget?
5: The name.
(Literal answer for the win!)
Hubs: How was your day?
Me: It was ok.
5: Was it a longer day?
Me: Longer than what?
5: Longer than expected.
Me: No, it was about as long as it normally is.
5: Was it a lover day?
Me: What’s a “lover” day?
5: You know, did you love it more than you expected?
Me: Um, no. Definitely not.
Hubs: You know not to drink the pool water, right?
Hubs: And why is that?
5: So I don’t swallow any criminals.
(And yes, we were apparently vacationing at Rikers Island. Chemicals is the word he was going for, by the way).
