I was a single parent for a couple of days, including this morning. So I got up at 5:50 am to make sure all of us got out of the house early - I needed to be at work early.
I turned on the hall light and Ethan sits up in his bed:
Me: Yes sweetheart?
Ethan: Mom? Will you put me to bed?
Me: Ethan. It's morning. It's time to get up.
Ethan: But why didn't you put me to bed?!
I had been out late the night before to Zach's band concert... so the sitter put Ethan to bed.
Me: Honey. I came up and kissed you goodnight but you were already asleep.
Ethan: Then why are you waking me up so early this morning!
Later, as Ethan attempted to find matching socks in the laundry basket in my bedroom, he let out a long, juicy toot.
Me: (calling from the bathroom). Holy cow Ethan! Was that you?
Ethan: Yes. Sorry.
Me: Wow. Maybe you need to go to the bathroom.
Ethan: But you should have seen it mom! It let out green smoke!
I stuck my head out of the bathroom.
Me: It let out green smoke?
Ethan: Yeah. It was super stinky. Can you see the green smoke?
WAY too much television.
On the car ride to school:
Me: It's hard doing stuff without dad.
Me: He's organized.
Me: I'm not so organized.
Zayd: But you bring sunshine to our day.
