words to remember.
while putting the kids to bed the other night:
O: Will you sing us a song, Daddy?
Daddy: OK--twinkle, twinkle, little star...
O: No--that's for babies. I want one for big kids. Like some jazz.
while riding in traffic:
E, after seeing one pass his window: I want a motorcycle for mySELF, mama.
mama: Um, a real motorcycle?
E: yeah. you get me one at the grocery store?
mama: oh, motorcycles are not for kids--just grownups, buddy.
E: awwWWww.... (and many tears of disappointment)
