The Truth Comes out

We sat at the table, the kids joking loudly while I fed Miles yogurt
and tried to snatch a few bites of my own meal.

Upon hearing something of questionable dinner-table content,
Zachary proceeded to correct one of his sisters.

Immediately I asked him, "Hey. Are you the mom?"

You're probably familiar with this line but if not, it's meant to remind the
bossy sibling that if mom is present than mom can take care of it.

Without skipping a beat he replied
"No, but I have an idea that I should be!"


All hope for serious reproof was lost with the irruption of laughter.

Myself included.

One of these days I may just give him the chance.  I wonder if the imaginations version
of being a mom is all it's cracked up to be?

Haha! For sure :D We just had one the other day in response to "Do YOU want to be the Dad?" Say "YES! I do!" Well. We might just have to try that one of these days.

Ha! My friend over heard her eight year old twins discussing "I wonder what it's like to be a parent?" Some fun dialogue followed. ;)
Glad you can roll with the laughter as you embrace life with your love bugs.


Miss you!
