It takes less than 10 minutes to get from Aurora Christian School (my kids school) back to my house. In that short amount of time, the two short people I gave birth to manage to keep me entertained and a little confused everyday. Those two short people always have something to talk about, although I willing to admit that half the time I have no idea how these conversations get started or where they will end up. On the way home from school the other day the following conversation was had:
Jada: Momma do you know something?
Me: Yeah Jada, mommy knows a lot of things…
Jada: Did you know that someone came up with words?
Jada: Like bean and street and a lot of other words. Did you know that momma?
Me: Ok, sure….
Jason: No Jada I’m mad!
Me: Wait, what? Mookie why are u mad?
Jada: Mom is 20 a grownup number?
Me: I have no idea what that means, where did that even come from?
Jada: Is 20 a number where you become a grownup?
Me: Ummmm, yes?
Jada: If I turn 20 do I get to be a grownup?
Me: Sure you are….
Jason: I mad mommy, cause Jada did it…
Me: What did Jada do?
Jada: Momma I did not do anything!
Me: I know Jada….
Jason: No it’s my turn, she did do it!
Me: Your turn for what? I’m so confused……yes we are home….EVERYBODY OUT, IT’S NAP TIME!
Jason: Awww man, I no wanna take a nap! (said while he is trying to strap himself back into his car seat so he does not have to go inside)
Me: Boy if you don’t get out…
Jason: I sorry mama, I get out, I no wanna take a nap!
Jada: Momma did you know….
Me: Quiet, no more question, get in the house!
(Picture the two short people stomping into the house, mad because they now have to go take naps!)
