He's a Character

Mama? Is it Mother day?

K asks me this almost every day when I'm driving him to preschool. His preschool is a part of Minnesota's ECFE program, of which there is always a parent-involvement portion. So, while K attends preschool 3 afternoons a week, one of those afternoons I attend with him.

So it is that K began to ask me this year if every day was Mother day. At first I answered him, misunderstanding the question: No, Mother's Day is in May, this is September. K would humor me and just say oh, but he undoubtedly thought I'd lost my mind even more than usual.
It probably took a good 2 months of the question occurring every afternoon in the car as we approached the building that houses his preschool for me to realize what he was really asking me.

He wanted to know if I was staying with him at preschool or if it was a drop-off day.

In my defense, K does come up with some funny things to say fairly regularly, and I've been remiss in that I haven't catalogued them here.

Yesterday, at M's swimming lesson, K was earnestly going through the toys and coloring books that are always piled haphazardly on a table in the waiting area.

What are you doing Bud?

I'm organizing!

If only he'd do that at home. Then he bumped a toy which then fell to the ground with a loud crash. I didn't do anything! he insisted amid the titters of the other parents waiting for their children.

The other day he told me: When I cry, water comes out of my eyes and it tastes good! My tongue comes out and I lick it!

He's always singing too. My favorite lately is a holiday number:

Aw-we-you-ya! Aw-we-you-ya!

You've gotta figure out how to get that organizing at home--that would be awesome! I love his question. Mother's Day! Isn't it great how they really want us to be there, to be the helper? What a cutie he is.

What a character! I love his facial expression in the first picture of him.

Cute kid :-) I love that massive cowlick in his hair. I had one just like it and gave it to my daughter. She's not so fond of it now though.
