The Question and a Wish

I was putting Wes to bed last night and I told him that he will have a new cousin by Friday. He looked a little puzzled and asked why Kristen didn't have a baby in her tummy last year but this year she does. Then he asked how she got the baby in her tummy.
I told him that when two people love each other very very much they make a wish and get a baby. He told me he loved me but didn't get what he wished for - I had to tell him it was only for mommy's and daddy's. He thought about it for awhile and told me that he loves me and knows what he would wish for...a lifetime supply of zucchini bread!

What's in your head

I was driving in the car yesterday with the kids, listening to a CD of mixed songs off of Kyle's itunes. A song had just finished and I skipped ahead a few tracks. Jack started screaming and yelling 'no, no, no, no, nooooooo!'
I couldn't figure out what was wrong. I thought about it and went back to the song that had just ended and he immediately calmed down.

He's a big Cranberries fan I guess.

Wes stated a few days before this that he really like this song also.

Next Time

I took Wes to Bemidji to shop for new school clothes and shoes, I can't believe he will be starting Kindergarten this year! We decided to take a break and he, of course, wanted pancakes. We stopped at Country Kitchen and both ordered pancakes and bacon.

The waitress asked me if I wanted to have the bill split up. Seriously. He's 5. I thought she would smile like it was a joke but she didn't.

I asked Wes if he was going to pay for me. He said he would but forgot his money at home and would pay next time. : )

Instead of the traditional wedding march, they decided to sing to each other while she walked down the isle. It was so awesome!
