Over spring break we had a wonderful little get away to the Oregon coast. I will post more about the trip and put on some pictures, but wanted to share some of the cute comments that we heard.
At the aquarium we got to watch them feeding all the fish, aenomes, and crabs. The man explained to the kids that they feed the crabs until they are big enough and then they feed them to the octopus. Molly very quietly looked down at the 2 crabs deuling over fish heads and quietly said... "do they know yet?" You had to have heard her little voice - it was priceless!
The kids spent most of the time in the pool. One night I left for a minute to run back to the room. Yordi got out of the water and ran over to Tom frantic. He asked him "where did my mom go? You know my REAL mom, not that other one." Tom said he experienced a moment of panic... like how could HE get stuck with this question... He was about to start answering when I walked back in. Yordi ran over, threw his arms around me, looked back at Tom and said..."Here she is, dad, this is the mom, the real one... Dad didn't know where you were."
sigh... I am the "real one"
Granted, Yordi got back into the pool and was nailed by his brother for saying such a thing. And I looked pretty conspicuous hauling a screaming black child down the hallway while he yelled at the top of his lungs "let me go. Your not my mom" over and over again. Wonder how many people believed him. Oh yeah, good times!!! But I am the real one!!!
