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
