From the Mouth of Miles

This morning after I put Asher down for a nap, I started to clean up the house. I put the dishes in the dishwasher and started a load of laundry. I picked up some handfuls of miscellaneous junk and put it away. I was walking back from putting some things away in my room and looked up to see Miles coming toward me with a curious little expression on his face. He said, "Mommy, who's coming over?" I answered that I didn't know if anyone was coming over today. He said, "Yes. Someone must be coming over."

My parents came over on Sunday. Not long after my dad sat down at the table, Miles stood in front of him, staring up with those big eyes. (Please note that I was standing in the same room and so was Ryan.) He said, pretty much out of the blue, "Um, Spongebob...um.. Yeah, Spongebob, I watched that because Daddy said mommy wasn't here so she wouldn't know." I turned to Ryan and my eye darts popped from their sockets. Ryan was shocked that Miles remembered this special Spongebob occasion. I reminded him that children remember everything, including being taught to do things when mommy isn't home. BAD! My dad laughed for a long time.

Last night, after a full day of visitors, I threw together dinner for the boys while Miles watched Curious George. I called for him to come and eat and he quickly ran into the room and bounced up on his chair. He sat with perfect posture and said, "Mommy can you go turn off the TV cause I can hear it and I need to concentrate on eating." Nope, I did not just make that up.

It is soooo scary how kids remember EVERYTHING! My 7 year old still surprises me with stuff like "Remember that one time when I was like 1 and a half and you and daddy took me camping and you didn't bring any wipes and I had a poopy diaper so you had to use leaves from the woods...." Just for example. That never really happened. But they remember EVERYTHING!!!! Miles sounds like an incredibly lovable lil guy:)

Oh my! What a clever, clever boy!

And good for you for picking up when no one's coming over! The common one here is when I bother brushing the kids' hair. "We going for a car ride mommy?" Umm...yeah.

I can't believe how much kids can remember. My daughter has lately started asking about stuff that happened a year ago...stuff we don't have any pictures about and haven't talked about for a year!
Whenever I put on makeup, my daughter asks "Where we going mommy?"
