Mica lost a tooth on Thursday. He decided he'd write her a letter. It went something like this:
Dear Tooth Fairy,
Please give me a lot of money, so I can buy a lot of toys.
In the car the next day I said: Mica what did your letter to the Tooth Fairy say?
Mica rattled off his letter.
I said: More money doesn't always equal more toys. There are some toys that are really expensive and some toys that are not. You could get one really nice expensive toy or five really inexpensive toys.
Mica said: Oh.
Isaak said: Mom why won't you let me have those markers sitting on your night stand?
I said: Because the last time you got a hold of markers you drew on our wood floor! No more markers for you, unless they are washable.
Isaak said: Well I won't do that this time.
I said: Sorry, but the answer is, 'No'. Plus all those markers are mine.
Isaak said: Uggg!
Runny Like Snot
Isaak was in Mica's space. Annoying him like he usually does. I tried distracting him.
I said: Isaak I need your help in the kitchen. I need someone to stir this!
Isaak said: Ok I'm coming. I love to stir things! Pause Why am I stirring this Mom?
I said: Well it's too runny. I have to make it thicken up with four.
Isaak said: Oh kind of like my snot gets too runny.
I said: Sort of like that. Next time your snot is runny maybe we should try rubbing flour on it. Laughing out loud! Pause. I'm only kidding of course.
Isaak said: Mom where does does mango juice come from?
I said: It comes from Mangos.
Isaak said: Oh...the thing that stands on one leg.
Daddy looked strangely over to Isaak and I.
I said: He's thinking of Flamingos I believe. Pause. I decided to work with Isaak's thought that Mangos stand on one leg. Yep Mangos pee out Mango Juice. What color are Mangos Isaak? I thought he'd answer, "Pink".
Isaak said: They are
I said: Are you sure they aren't pink?
Isaak said: Yes I'm sure they are
I said: They actually come from a fruit that is green on the outside and yellow on the inside.
I wonder if he envisions a yellow Flamingo that makes mango juice?
