For every nice day, we get a week of miserable rain. It is affecting my son. Yesterday he told me that he felt mopy. So I gave him a warm bath and he said it only washed away half of his mope. I can't blame him.

I opened my journal and came across some things I had jotted down that he has said to me; usually conversations in the car. This is the reason why I would never have a video player in my car. Look at what I would have missed out on....

"I prefer to say "let's play it by month." he says to me.

What do you mean, I say.

"Well, you say, let's play it by YEAR, so I say let's play it by MONTH."

Ear, Year, tomatO, tomAto...

Paul McCartney is playing in the stereo.

"This is movin' music, mum. I like Paul McCartnery...you know what else I like, mum...fettucine, spaghetti, cheese sticks, my best buddies, and....the colour red, and....the number seven. A red seven would be my kind of number....and my cousin, K, and you and Daddy and ____(babe's name)."

Here's hoping for sunny skies and even sunnier demeanors. At least the rain could wash our mopiness away.

    I believe that I would be willing to give up warm weather to live in a clean enviroment.

    Do you think I can have a orange 6?

    This conversation has been brought to you by the number 7 and the colour red....

    It is too cute. It is a marvel the way kid's minds work, isn't it? Too often as adults we are jaded, focussed on the 'adult' issues of work, bills, etc... (funny how it revolves around money, eh?) We forget the wonder that is the world.

    I think adults have children to remember that wonder. Did you?

    your son is Olympiakos. Olympiakos is a greek football team. It's colour is red and its number is 7 (7 being the gate of the hardcore fans, so it is really symbolic of the team).

    HI Day;
    of course, so would I...
    Orange 6; doesn't this have something to do with car racing?...

    Crag;
    I can relate to his wonder, so yes, indirectly, if not intentionally; these are among the benefits of children.

    Missy;
    Sounds like you have a menu planned for this evening! :)

    Chloe;
    Oh, I hope they have a web site. I will have to show my son.
    Thank you again, dear friend :)xo

    LOL @ "This is movin music"! How adorable!

    It is so fun to sit and listen to a child's reasoning. It can put things in perspective very easily for us.

    Take care,
    Connie

    A girl of about 13 came into my class wearing a t-shirt that read "you say tomato, I say fuck off". I asked if she knew what it meant and she said no. I decided against telling her or her mother as they would be very embarrassed and none of the others understood either. Over here status and 'face' is everything.

    Oh that's so cute :)
    My Mom kept a diary when I was little and it's so hilarious the things little kids say.
    I especially liked when he said he felt mopy hehe
    Hope the sun shows up there!

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    That's cute! Thank you for making me laugh :) A gem from my friend's son: "Fortune cookie starts with 4."

    We've had the rain here too, with just one glorious sunny...workday. Hope there are sunny skies ahead, but without crazy heat & humidity.

    Such cuteness :)

    You know what ..I don't even have a lucky number..lol

    "Play it by year"...I love it! I love the funny little language switches that kids make. Reminds me of a friend's child who asked "How do you spell 'Once'? I already have the 'W'"

    Movin' music. Sooooo cute.
