outside the gym, waiting for it and the children’s area to open up. 9yo is telling jokes, so i tell one i saw recently on facebook.
me: why was the lobster not good at sharing?
9yo: ummmm, i don’t know
6yo: because he was crabby?
me: no, but good guess. because he was shellfish.
both kids laugh.
6yo: i have one like that. why was the carrot not good at sharing?
me: hmmmm. no clue.
6yo: because he was…..crummy.
6yo [talking from back seat on way to library]: i love going to new libraries. it’s cool to go see new libraries. and new things. it’s cool to see new things. too. you know, even tho i like my booster seat with the back on, it’s okay with the back off too. i like it both ways. i’ll make a decision by the time we get there about which way i want it to be. because i have to make a decision. the last time we had the back on was before we took it off was when we went down to see mimi and papa. i still have red ink on my hands from drawing earlier. it didn’t come off. look, there’s our gym. do you like the ellipticals there? you don’t like them there, do you?
my brain: [boom]
