Kids say the darndest...

The boys have each had a couple of really funny things lately.

The other night when I was putting Ryan to bed I was going through our normal conversation that ends with "go to bed like a big boy, I love you."
He says, "I will cry in my bed."
Me: "No you won't, you go to bed like a big boy"
Ryan (now whispering): "I will cry in my bed"
Me (whispering as well): "No, go to bed like a big boy"
Ryan (even quieter): "I will cry"
Me (quiet as well): "No"
Ryan (itty bitty whisper): "Yes"

It was so cute and funny... I guess he just wanted to get the last word in. He didn't cry, that I heard, so I'm not sure what was up with that whole conversation.

Thursday was show-n-tell. I told Reid on Wednesday night that we needed to get his bag packed with what he was going to take. I told him that it was letter B and he needed to pick out something. I suggested book, basketball, and a few other things. He looked at me and said "Mom, it doesn't have to start with that letter. It's ok if we just bring something else." He has said this before and I know they 'can' take something else if they want and I could just tell he had something in mind. I said "Ok, Reid, what do you want to take?"

His reply...
Marshmallows.... Yep, he wanted to take marshmallows. I have no idea why but he was really excited about it. It was bedtime. I wanted to get the bag packed and get him to bed so I didn't argue. I told him not to eat them until on the bus on the way home from school. I made him a ziploc of marshmallows and off he went.
What makes it better is that I didn't think that the class was doing show-n-tell anymore. It hadn't been on the weekly calendar anymore so I thought they had stopped doing it. I found out that they were still having show-n-tell but Reid just hadn't participated for a couple of months! This is our second week back into being active in show-n-tell and I'm sure his teacher is thinking we've totally lost it!

I should tell you things you took for show and tell and then you would understand the marshmallows.
