"I just can't figurize it out!"
Tonight, upon hearing that we were going to his cousin's house on Wednesday, says "Ugggh. Wednesday is as far away as the moon. Us is on Earth and Wednesday is the moon. Mom, did God put us on the Earth?" Yes. "Did he blast us off here?"
"Mom, my shoulders are so silky and smooth. It must be where the coconut [polka-dot butter; coconutter] went!"
"Mom? Your eyes are, like, lime green and army green swirled together and kinda sparkly. I love you."
"Why do boys have swimsuits on their knees?"
"Dad, you have ugly feet."
Nolan gets sucked into books to the point where you can't rouse him. The other night we were all sitting around the table and he had his nose in a book. We started talking about a fictional surprise Disney World trip and how our flight was leaving bright and early. We listed all the fun things we'd be doing, etc. Then we heard a fictional ice cream truck so we all jumped up and ran to the front door. Nolan had no clue. None. Oblivious.
One day he was supposed to be brushing his teeth before school. I had all the kids in coats, shoes and had the door held open to head out. Yell for Nolan. He doesn't come. Go to the bathroom and check to find: Nolan holding a book in his left hand, the toothpaste and toothbrush in the right, the toothpaste cap in his mouth. He was trying to get toothpaste onto the brush with a single hand - all the while still reading.
He's much too pensive to say funny things these days!
I rather like this guy. And turns out we'll be seeing a whole lot more of him. We'll get to take him to the park in the summer. I won't be a summer widow. We'll have family-fun-filled-summers! Summer. Summer. Summer. Without a summer business!! Without a summer BUSINESS!!! Without a summer business.
