As I was hunched over my briefcase this morning, rifling through some papers, Ethan excitedly told me about an art project he did in class the day before.
Ethan: Mom! Mom! Mom! I made a face mask in school yesterday!
Me: (Still looking through my papers) Oh! Wow! That's great honey.
Ethan: Mom! Mom! Look at it mom!
Me: (I turn around). Wow! That's... uhm... wow.
Me: That's interesting.
Ethan: It's a BLOODY FACE!
Ethan: See the blood all over mom! And he has angry eyebrows... SEE!
Me: Yes. I see that.
Ethan: And my best friend Matt made a bloody face too!
Me: Ethan, maybe we should make something other than a bloody face.
Ethan: (his eyes grow wide) MOM. That's what my teacher said too!
