Conversations with a 5-year old

Me: Do you remember when we were talking about the silent "e" at the end of a word? Well, the "t" in "listen" is also a silent letter.

Him: Oh, you mean it's just supposed to shut-up and not say anything?

Me giggling: Uh, yah, it's just supposed to shut-up and not say anything.

S & M (ha) wielding the toys they've turned into swords and shields and running around the house

S: I'm the king of the world!

M: Me! King! Too!

S: Yah!

M: Yah!

Me: All right, you finished your homework. Good job, sweetie!

Him: Mama, I want to do more homework.

Me: Well, sweetie, we don't have any more right now, and it's actually time to get ready for bed. I promise we'll do more tomorrow.

Him getting grumpy: I want to do more homework right now!

Me thinking: This can't be my kid

A child that loves to learn, joy, pure joy. And he's king of the world too.

Cele - yes, he does, which is wonderful. I hope it lasts! It's good to be 5!

I love it! Even our peaceful decor becomes a sniper rifle in the hands of my 5-year-old spawn. Oh my. The 3-year-old girl spawn JUST informed me, while typing this, that she is the White Witch from Narnia, and that she needed to count to three so that she could jump back in for some Turkish Delight. How appropriate.
