Daddy, Do you think that it is very quiet in a house where people only use sign language? I think it is.
So Daddy, I sat down next to my friend at the table at school and we said we wanted to be best friends, and ta-da, there we had it!
ME: If you help me bag all these leaves I’ll pay you two dollars.
SON: How about $300?
Shortly after the leaf payment question I turned the corner and walked into the garage to get more bags. I was surprised to see my kindergartener making a beeline out of the corner of the garage while quickly tugging on his sweat pants and showing a guilty look on his face.
“What are you doing?” I asked.
“Did you just pee in the cooler?” I asked, mostly joking as I was sure my 5 1/2 year old would know better than to do such a thing.
“Ummm…” he replied. I suddenly realized that I might not have been far off.
“Did you?” I said, and walked over to the corner only to see a puddle between the wall and the cooler.
“Why didn’t you just go inside to the bathroom or outside?”
“I really had to go and this was closer than a tree.”
“Seriously? You peed in my garage!”
“Are you going to do that ever again?”
