Conversations Not Worth Continuing

1. Mayhem & I are at the store today. I was getting light bulbs, because our bulbs pop en masse rather that one at a time and there were only 2 bulbs at home. Mayhem was asking about the types of bulbs and what lights needed new ones. Then he says

"wW need a one in our room too Mama"

me: "I didn't notice that last night"

Mayhem: "it got popped out last night. not broken, just popped out"

something about that statement made me go hhmmmm....

me: "so how'd it get popped out?"

Mayhem "it got whacked by the long neck dinosaur when it went flying by."

There are so many places I could go from there I couldn't decide on a starting point and decided to just drop it.

FYI...bunk beds and small bedrooms with ceiling fans can cause unexpected 'issues'

2. Mayhem & I are leaving the gym. He'd been in the playcare area for a little over an hour.

Me: So did you have fun?

Mayhem: I had a good day

Me: That's nice

Mayhem: Yeah, I didn't hit anybody today

Not knowing whether to go with "how often do you hit people?" or a discussion of the difference between attainable goals and setting the bar too low I decided to drop it.

3.  I'm folding laundry and Havoc comes in and says.

"Do we still have those round green sleds"

Me: yes, they are in the shed

Havoc: Do you think daddy will help me put an engine and brakes on them? Maybe some wheels too and a seat.

well....at least he has thought ahead to needing brakes

LOL...Dontcha just love those conversations? My son last night while roasting marshmallows kept calling them marshmelmows so the last part sounds something like elmos. So they started calling them melmows. It was really cute:-)

Dinos and light bulbs...not a good mix!

Those dinos are trouble makers! Watch out for them! :)

sometimes, the best thing you can do is to just drop it because what you don't know, won't drive you insane for a week.

I keep saying how I can't wait for Brayden to start talking... maybe I shouldn't be quite so anxious, right?

Sounds like you have your hands full and never have a dull moment!!
