Getting out of the house in the morning is always a little hectic. I have so many bags and cups that I usually make a separate trip to the car in the morning before I take the kids down. One morning I said to Dante, “I am going to take this stuff to the car, I’ll be right back”. Dante said, “Ok, I’ll stay here with Leela”. I thought he was being really sweet and said, “Thanks Dante that is nice of you”. As soon as I start to open the baby gate Dante yells, “Look Leela mommy is running away” !
I was stopped at a light as we were driving to school and Dante said, “Whats that guy doing?”. I look around and don’t see anyone. It was October so I thought maybe he saw a scarecrow or some other Halloween decoration in a yard, but don’t see anything and he keeps asking me what the guys is doing. Then I realized it is a Jesus statue on the side of a church.
I start talking about Jesus and God and how he lives in heaven. Then Dante says, “Mommy I can’t see it”. Everything is so literal and clearly we need to up our religious education game.
We were at the park after naps and I said to Dante, “Lets go home and start dinner, daddy will be home soon”.
Dante looked at his wrist and said “its’ 5 o’clock I have to go meet Daddy at the dinosaur museum”.
Um, it’s 3:45 and you don’t wear a watch…
Dante: “Someone put boogers on me”
Me: “Who would put boogers on you”
Dante: “Leela” …. who is 10 feet away
