My Little Old Man

My son’s preschool teacher is amazing. She has this fantastic ability to remember conversations she’s had with him and report back to me. Here was an email I received from her last week:

Yesterday Liam asked me if I was a morning person or a night person? I asked, “What about afternoon person?” He said, “I didn’t think about that…Are you an afternoon person?” I said, ” I am a morning person which is the perfect time for you to get here so that I can spend time with you.” He said, ” I am a morning person, too, and I get up very early…sometimes I stay up late, so I guess I’m a night owl too.” I laughed and said, “You know yourself really well, Liam.” He said, “I live in me, so yeah, I know me.”

Oh that kid. Such an old man in a four-year-old body.



Say What?!

I am not deaf nor do I have any hearing loss. This does not stop me from using the subtitles EVERY TIME I watch a movie. I swear, if I can’t read what the actors are saying, I have no idea what is going on. I’m like an octogenarian…”What’d he say? I didn’t hear him! Why does he mumble so much?!” My husband hates subtitles, so I have to suffer through a lot of films, doing my very best to follow along. Okay, you can stop shaking your head at me. I already know how pathetic I am.

I have a wicked inability to nap. This doesn’t mean that I’m not tired, I just can’t turn my stupid brain off when it’s not the “proper” time to go to sleep. My husband, on the other hand, can lay on the couch with screaming children running around & jumping on top of him and be out like a light in less than three minutes. How does he do it?!? Perhaps I can have him figure it out and put together a seminar. That way I (and any non-nappers like myself) can learn his magical ways. In the meantime, I’ll just be walking around like an over-exhausted zombie.
