You hatched and the slide is slippery

We were sitting around the kitchen table. It was a typical weeknight evening, and dinner was winding down. Baked salmon, a favorite. I told the kids to finish their last bite, listen to Uncle Charlie, and we might have a sweet snack  if they played their cards right.

But then then the conversation took a turn for the funny:

Hey Nola, what did you learn in school today?

“we learned about animals (oviparous, what?). They lay eggs and hatch babies”…

yadda yadda yadda…..the chicken and the egg story…eat your asparagus or else…. blah, blah, blah…

One thing led to another, everyone got to talking and joking at once, and now Gage somehow believes I sat on him for 8 months. Yes, he thinks he hatched from an egg. Because naturally, he did.

Sure thing, I’ll correct him tomorrow. Or maybe the next day.

But for right now? My boy thinks he hatched from an egg.

It’s funny, no?

(I’ll fix this before he starts dating, promise)

(it’s only temporary, I’ll show him The Business of Being Born You hatched and the slide is slippery sometime before he goes to high school)

**********************

And not at all on the same subject, but equally frightening is baby Paul’s love for being outside.

He’s brave enough (but not graceful enough), to go sliding down the kiddo slide by himself.

Greg Louganis, you have competition. This little dude is smooth. A perfect “10″.

Amirite?

Also, you’re welcome.

  5. I just love their precious little minds and how they think :) I will now continue to sit on my egg for the next 4 months ;)

  6. I’m pretty sure that is one of the best slide pictures of all time. It has the perfect amounts of ‘nekkidness’ and flailing arms and apprehension.

    Catching up on my blog reading (so, I’m a slacker and a bit behind. Ahem), and this picture made me laugh SO HARD that I just spit my drink all over the place.

    Thank you.
