Overheard

(I see A (4) rolling the pizza cutter all over the open dishwasher instead of doing his chore: unloading silverware)
Me: A, you need to quit playing around and finish your chores.
A: Well, I want to, but my brain is just making me silly!
Me: Your brain is going to get your bottom in trouble, so you need to put that away and get finished!
A: Oh, I'm remembering how to do my chores now!

"Hey, Mom! I did 43 jumps in a row using the crutch as a pogo stick!" 14yo S, who along with 12yo C has been inventing new uses for old crutches. pogo stick and stilts top the list. I just close the door to their basement room and pretend I know nothing. :)

Go visit Mary for more Tiny Talk Tuesday
