they said it
[While snuggling in my lap at my parents' house, watching - what else? - a Thomas video.]
Me: Dexter, who loves you?
Me: Teresa? (his aunt, who was standing nearby)
Dexter: No, Deeza.
Me (hopefully): Jesus?
Dexter: No, Diesel! And I love Thomas and Diesel.
Above: Dexter's beloved Diesel. Below: Dexter playing trains with Aunt Teresa & Uncle Chase.
A few weeks ago, Nate told me he wanted to be a bird when he grew up. Well, that was before Fire Safety Week at preschool. It's all about firefighters at our house these days!
Jon: Tell me about preschool today.
Nate: Well, Teacher K told us that she was in a store and a fireman checked her out... (pause)... kind of like a doctor!
[I checked with Teacher K and got the real story -- She was explaining to the class that firefighters do more than fight fires, so she told them a story about when she was pregnant and got very ill in a store. They ended up calling 911 and a firefigther came and made sure she was OK. The real story is not funny, but we got a good laugh out of Nate's version!]
