I love getting gifts from my kids. Usually hand made, I adore them...and they are hanging all over my walls.
My hubby put the word in Reagan and Ethan's ears that Mommy's Day is coming soon. I over heard them talking about what to get me this morning. Here is the conversation:
Reagan: "I want to get her some pretty yellow flowers (dandilions)"
Ethan: "NO! She NEEDS A colorful SPACESHIP!"
Reagan: "You don't have enough dollars for a spaceship buddy." (Reagan is the logical one!)
Ethan: "Daddy will give me all the dollars cuz MOMMY NEEDS a colorful spaceship!"
Reagan: "But Mommy likes the yellow flowers!"
Reagan: "I am getting her yellow flowers"
Ethan: "Daddy and Ethan will get Mommy a colorful SPACESHIP....."
Ethan: "Mommy needs a colorful spaceship cuz it goes really FAST..........
..............and Mommy needs to go fast cuz we are always late."
Heh. I guess me running around like a chicken with my head cut off every time we need to leave the house as a family has left a profound effect on my Ethan. So much so that he's willing to spend all of his dollars for a spaceship for Mommy.
