Things that made me laugh

Today we were watching a helicopter flying.  I said, "I wonder what makes it move forward and what makes it stay still or hover."  My 6 yo son said, "There’s this button. . . "

Yesterday I asked my younger son what book he had looked at when he went to bed last night.  Then I got distracted and didn’t hear the kids talking.  A few minutes later my older son said, "Nursery rhymes with Barney."  I heard "nursery" rhymes with "Barney."  And I said, "No, it doesn’t."  He said, "Nursery rhymes with Barney."    I was so surprised that he thought those two words rhymed.  I said "’Nursery’ rhymes with ‘Bursery’ and ‘Barney’ rhymes with ‘Narney’."  He said, "Mom, the book J. looked at was called "Nursery Rhymes with Barney."  I started laughing so hard I couldn’t talk for a few minutes after that!

On Saturday I accompanied my high school voice student at a solo contest and left my husband with the kids (including the baby) for an hour and 45 minutes.  When I returned I asked him how it went.  He said, "Great."  I asked him if he was aware that this was the first time he had ever been left alone with all five of them.  He didn’t realize that.  Then I asked him if he remembered what he had said when I returned after leaving him alone for the first time with our first son for about 2 hours.  (He was about the same age as baby #5 is now.)  He had said he was counting the "15-minute segments" until I returned!  Yes, Daddy has grown up quite a bit in the last 6 years!
