I swear, there isn't anything this kid does any more that doesn't make me laugh. (Okay, I don't laugh when he's giving the dials on my serger a spin, especially when I can't remember what they were set on, but most of the time, I'm laughing.)
Sawyer has this Diego field journal thingy that's like a Magnadoodle on the inside. He's always asking me to draw stuff. It used to be just squares and circles or the alphabet but lately he has gone to more complicated things. Our conversation just now went like this:
"Mommy! Draw balloons."
I quickly scrawled out three balloons.
"Thanks, Mommy! Now draw a tapir."
Um, WHAT? Okay.. I drew a blobby thing with a long snout and hoped he'd accept it as a tapir.
"OOOOHHH, it is a tapir! Thanks! Now draw a jaguar."
I drew a pretty kickass jaguar, if I do say so myself. Spots, whiskers, triangular nose and all. Maybe slightly domestic looking, but I didn't figure he would notice. And what does he say?
"Umm.. it's a cat, Mommy."
I am so in for it when he's a teenager. The kid will be smarter than me, I know it.
The other thing that makes me laugh is how kids are so honest. They aren't afraid to tell you that you're fat or look weird or shouldn't eat that third donut. Sawyer particularly loves to squish my saggy belly pouch in the shower and laugh, saying, "Ewww, gross, Mommy!" And the other day, he informed me that my morning bed head hair was "like a big bird." At least I know whose opinion to trust when I get a new outfit, right?
