This Kid Cracks Me Up

Even though Zeke takes the bus now, I still pick him up Wednesdays after school so we can go to McDonald's for lunch with some of the other kids in his class.

Last week, while we were sitting outside of the school waiting for him to get out, Deacon said, "Mom, I need sunglasses."

I reached behind my seat and handed him his Lightning McQueen shades. He handed them back and said, "No, Mom. I need white sunglasses." Meaning, he wanted my sunglasses.

So I handed him my white sunglasses. He put them on, looked around, then said, "Mom. I need window down." And so there he sat, in the 50 degree weather, with his window down and his sunglasses on.

The other night I had the boys in the tub and it was about time for them to get out (as in the water was draining and the toys were cleaned up). As they were finishing up putting all their bathtoys back in the bucket, Zeke let loose a little fart. Deacon, one to not let anything slip past him, looked down at Zeke's bum, then up at a Zeke's face and said, "Zeke! You have toots?!"

Our garbage gets collected on Thursday mornings. This past Thursday, Deacon decided that he wants to start watching the school bus drive up our street to the cul-de-sac, turn around, and then come back down the street, waving as it drives past on its way to school. As the garbage truck started going around the cul-de-sac last week, Deacon noticed that it was getting close to someone's garbage cans. His eyes got all big and he said, "Whoa bus! Look out garbage cans!" As the bus cleared the cans with ease, he heaved a big sigh of relief and said, "Whew!" I guess he was really concerned about the cans.

The other day we were out in the backyard playing since the sun's been shining (ahh!). Josh started doing something that looked interesting so Deacon went over to Josh and said, "What are you doing?"

I'm guessing Josh didn't quite hear him because he looked and Deacon and said, "What?"

So Deacon looked right at Josh and said slowly and loudly, "I said, 'What. are. you. do.ing?"

* * * * *

Oh that Deacon. He is so goofy, yet so sweet. I just can't wait to see what he'll come out with next.

I don't know what it is about garbage trucks but when I was younger I would watch the garbage truck in awe and wonder, even running outside as the truck would drive away from my house. That usually meant having wet feet from the early morning dew but it was worth it to see the garbage truck.

That will teach Josh to listen better!
