Starting off day one of seven (A week of 7 Posts, 7 Days with Jen) with some chitchat from my three boys.
Lexington is 4.
Emmett is 3, with Autism.
Collin is 1.5.
Lexington to Collin before his first sip ever of Sprite: It’s spicy. Be careful, Collin, it’ll burn your thing.
Carolyn: *cracks open a can of Coke, takes sip and exhales in the Coca-cola Classic way.*
Lexington: Are you so spiced, Mom?
Emmett as we exit after Mass: Buh BYE– seeeyeww layyytur!
Carolyn: See, Emmett? We went to church.
Emmett: Tew chich.
Carolyn: We had to get the Body of Christ at church.
Emmett in hushed awe: Ohhhh. Cool.
After discussing the properties of an egg:
Lexington: Wait, Mom –DO. WE. EAT. BABY. CHICKENS?!”
Carolyn: Today we learned that numbers go higher than 100, right?
Lexington: Yes. There’s little one hundred, medium one hundred, large one hundred, and EXTRA LARGE one hundred.
After returning from disposing a soiled, wretched diaper to the garage:
Lexington: Recycling diapers, eh, Mom?
Carolyn: Where are you, Collin?
Craig: Can you say Collin?
Craig: Can you say Daddy?
Craig: Can you say Mommy?
Craig: Can you say Lexington?
Carolyn: Lexington, I can’t believe how big you’re getting! I bet soon you’ll lose your first tooth!
Lexington: *commence 30 minute-long crisis
