My five-year-old has been thinking some deep thoughts lately. I love it.
[at breakfast the other day.]
Nate: Mom, when are we going back to California?
Me: Not for awhile. Why?
Nate: I don't want everything to change before we go back.
Me: What would change?
Nate: Everything. [pause] The thing I really don't want to change is Splash Mountain.
waiting in line with friends at splash mountain in june.
[walking a trail near our house. for the uninitiated, salmonberries are similar to raspberries and are native to the NW.]
Nate: There are no salmonberries today.
Me: Yes there are, I see one way up there.
Nate: That's too high for anyone to reach. [pause] Why would God make a salmonberry grow where no one can reach it?
after his last swim meet of the season.
OK one little Dexter story too:
This morning he was staring at himself in the back of his spoon and singing "I love you! I love you! I love you!" Yeah, no self-esteem issues there.
this is normal at our house.
