Out of the mouth of babes.....

Earlier in the week while I was at work and my Mom was watching the kiddos, she texted me to tell me that the kids were BEGGING her to go outside (to preface this...here in South Central PA it as been in the HIGH 90s since Monday). When she told them, "NO! It is too hot out.", Hayley replied, "Come on Nanny, it is ONLY 100 degrees, why can't we go out". Guess the stuff I posted about here, here, here, and here wouldn't feel to bad right about now....HUH???

Tonight I took the kiddos to the library to get their prizes from the Summer Reading Program as well as to take them to story time from 7-8. The story teller was VERY good and the kids had a great time interacting with the story as well as listening to her tell three stories based on the OCEAN. On our way there, one of our conversations went like this:

Hayley: "Mommy, when I go to first grade is recess going to be before or after lunch???"

Me: "More than likely after lunch."
*sighs* and thinks to herself I hope she is interested in more things during school than just recess*** LOL

{Brayden's question after Hayley asked about recess}

Brayden: "Mommy, how many pairs of shoes do I have to take to college?"

Me: "What????"

Brayden: "HOW MANY PAIRS OF SHOES DO I HAVE TO TAKE TO COLLEGE??"

Me: "Uhmmm....you want to know how many pairs of shoes you should take to college?

Brayden: "YES!!"

Me: "Well, uhmm...I guess 3 pairs of shoes. Sneakers, dress shoes, and flip flops."

Brayden: "I don't have a pair of flip flops! You need to buy me a pair of flip flops. I need flip flops to go to college!!"

Me: "Buddy, you are only 4 and are only going to be starting your last year of preschool. We have a few years until you leave for college. But we will buy you a pair of flip flops."

Brayden: "OK"
