some funnies

We were eating dinner a few nights ago and suddenly N says "Hey! I know! The baby's name should be Otis!!" I don't know where he heard that name, but it was very cute - and an improvement actually over his previous choice of Cruz de la Cruz (from "The Boy Who Saved Baseball")

In the car last week C asked me "So, next year, when I should be in first grade, will I still go to E?" (where he attends a one day/week enrichment program) I said "of course! You and N will both go next year." And he replies with "Well, I know I will be very busy taking care of the baby, so I won't have as much time for schooling." I tried to explain to him that his education is very important, and that it is a priority to us and we would NOT let anything interfere with that. I don't know WHERE he got the idea that all his time would be taken up caring for the baby? It was very sweet (and sad) at the same time. My mom claims I must have said something to make him think that, but I'm pretty sure I didn't.

We're currently reading "The Tales of Desperaux" as our bedtime book. In the book, there's a character named "Princess Pea." N listened to a couple chapters involving her and finally said "WHY would they name her Pee? Is her brother Poop? That's a TERRIBLE name for a pretty princess!" I couldn't help but laugh, and then explained that she was named peA, like the vegetable -- not like urine. He still isn't too sure about the name. When she appears in the book he mutters to himself "Vegetable?"

I'm sure there are more, but that's all I can think of at the moment.
