I know the obvious response: "Not that hard to outsmart Charles…"
But this morning at the breakfast table, I asked everyone what was on their list for the day.
Charles said the first thing on his list was to mow the lawn.
Dillon said he had already accomplished the first thing on his list, which was to get out of bed.
I asked him to bring us up to speed with what the NEXT thing on his list is…
He said to play outside, then play inside.
A lightbulb goes off over Charles' head: "What about cleaning the playroom, where is that on your list?"
D: It's not on my list.
C: Well, I am going to put it on your list.
D: Well, you can't.
C: Um, yes, I can. I'm the dad.
D: No, my list is in my head so you can't put anything on it.
He's pretty amazing these days with the logic and whatnot. And Rose has reached a milestone of pretty much knowing all her colors- she sometimes has problems recalling the word, but if you give her a multiple-choice situation, she'll get it right every time.
On another note, special day today, Happy Birthday Kate & Dharma! We'll be eating a lot of cake this weekend with Birthday Parties every day. Yay!
