I'm sure they're keeping them in the back. Just for you.

kid: Where going?
me: We're going to the pet store. To get cat litter. You can see some animals.
kid: want see fish.
me: sure, you can see fish.
kid: and elephants.
me: I don't think they have elephants. It's a pet store.
kid: Maybe ask.

Would you un-friend someone who thumbs-upped the following image on Facebook:

Lessons Learned

I did something completely stupid parenting-wise recently, and it is going to haunt me for the next two and a half months.
We're going on a trip, really our first all together, in June, and I am out of control excited. Really disproportionately so. I know other people fly to australia and whatever all the time, every weekend, blah blah, but WE don't. And I'm EXCITED.

So. Even though I should have known better, and as the words were leaving my mouth I was already regretting it, I told the kid, who has no concept of time or calendars, that we were going on a plane. In June.

Every single day, "we go onna plane? we go tomorrow? I wanna go NOW."
And now he's begun telling his friends at school that he's going on a plane to Barack Obama's house.

I still think I may be more excited than him though.
