I keep a running list of some of the crazy things that my kids say. (If I wanted to catch all of them, I’d have to constantly have a pen in hand).
This evening as I’m trying to get the kids to bed, my son, who was busy watching a show on TV and didn’t want to go to bed says… “But Mommy, it’s Alan Thicke!”
<<insert perplexed look here>>
(you know the look I’m talking about… it’s the reason why I may consider getting botox injections one day. I have wrinkles between my eyebrows from giving that same WTF look a little too often)
That is just a phease I NEVER thought I’d hear my son say to me. Never. There are many things I hope he never says… but this was something that never crossed my mind. Alan Thicke?? WTF?
Also tonight, the little girl comes to me and asks me if I could wake her up at 5:30am so she could watch Full House when it comes on again. Why? “Because it’s a new one,” she says. I explained to her (again) that those little babies on the show are now grown women and there will never be “new” episodes. I then told her that if she wakes up at 5:30am, I will tell her to GO BACK TO BED.
They love Full House. I don’t know what it is about that show that completely engrosses them, but it does. I think it’s a combination of stamos-hotness & mary kate/ashley-cuteness. Or maybe that’s just how I tolerate it while it’s on.
