Ism of the Week

"Mommy, why can't I have a sleepover with my new neighbor?"

"Well, Cael, first of all she's a girl and that's just not appropriate.  Second, we're going camping tomorrow, so we won't be around to play."

"We're going camping?!?"

"Yep.  Won't it be fun to go one more time before school starts?"

"We're going camping at school?"

"No, we're going camping at a campground and then you'll start school next week."

"School is at the campground?"

"No, honey.  It's in a classroom."

"There's a classroom at the campground?"

"Oh, Cael!  Listen carefully.  We are going camping at a campground tomorrow.  When we come home, we will have a few more days of vacation and then you start school in a classroom.  At your school.  Got it?"

"That's what I said, Mommy, jeez... why would I have school at a campground?  You're silly..."

On that note, I'll be taking a few days off to enjoy the last of our summer vacation.  Check back on Tuesday, when I'm sure I'll be buzzing with anticipation of Cael's first day of school this year and a few hours of totally deserved quiet.  Have a great weekend!


  1. Wow hard to believe he's starting school! Hope all goes well! :) And yes enjoy your much deserved few hours of quiet each day! Have a great weekend!

  2. hehe...the t eachers are just going to love him! ;-)

Leave your own "ism". Cael and Graham double-dog dare you.
