Kyler (with glee): “I’m pretending I drink wine and wear panties!”
Caleb: “Do you want to be naked or un-naked?”
Conversation that ensued in the van today –
Rylee: “It’s almost spring time, that’s when babies come. How are we going to find a daddy cat to make Basil have babies?”
I take a deep breath and try to think of what to say with all four kids in the car
Caleb: “I’m going to smash it, I’m going to squeeze it so hard that spider!!!”
Rylee (insistent): “I mean, what does the daddy cat do anyway? Once the babies are born can we give him away? How long do we need the daddy cat to make Basil a mama? Does he give her something like an egg maybe?”
I turn my head down in the car and stifle a smile and giggles. I am so immature I tell myself. What to say….
Caleb (interupting again): “This is going to be an awesome battle – do you smell that, I tooted!”
Rylee: “If the daddy cat doesn’t do much then why do we need one in the first place?”
Mama: “I’ll fill you in when we get home, it’s complicated.” More than you know little sweet girl…
Caleb: “Watch I’m capturing cars, see – there I got another one!”
Kyler: “I need food.”
That’s a perfect example of my normal day – spent driving kids to music class and drama and the park and the oh-so-random conversations that we have. Some days I’m annoyed by it but most I find entertaining…especially today.
