The kids asked me to start recording funny kids things again here.
So a couple from today:
Nathanael categorically refused to eat the cupcake he decorated for his Kindergarten class party. He said the teacher said he should decorate it, but since she didn't mention eating it, he didn't have explicit permission and therefore should not eat it. He made me email the teacher to ask if it was okay.
For this next one to make any sense at all, you have to know that all my boys have their molars crowned. All their molars. And their front teeth pulled. And it usually happens before they are 3 years old because they are born with corrupt baby teeth, so they don't remember getting the teeth pulled or crowned--from their perspective, the teeth have always been silver.
Okay, so today Elijah peeked into Emmeline's mouth when she was "talking" to Tim (oh, so so cute to see her, at 5 weeks old, trying to have a conversation with her daddy). Anyway, Elijah rushed over to me all excited and said, "Mom! Emmeline is getting teeth already!" I said, "She is?" He replied, "Yes! When she opened her mouth, I saw silver!"
I guess the teeth just come in that way...
Now that I think about it, that would be less trouble if they came in crowned already.
