There’s a Wocket in my Pocket!

Evan: Mommy, are you ever certain there’s a ghair on your chair?

 

Me: (washing dishes without looking up) Sometimes.

 

Evan: Mommy, is there a ghair on your chair?

 

Me: (looking up to see Evan draped on the top of my wing-backed chair) Why, I do believe there is a ghair on my chair.

 

*an hour later*

The boys are watching TV, and I read my book.

 

Evan: Is there a ghair on your chair?

 

Me: (looking up, smiling) Yes, there is a ghair on the chair.

 

Evan: Is that a bofa on the sofa?

 

Me: (Realizing I’m the only one on the sofa) Yes, I’m the bofa on the sofa.

 

Evan: Do you ever get the feeling there’s a B.T. watching T.V?

 

Me: (Looking at Sean, standing, mesmerized by Kai-Lan) Yes, I do have the feeling there’s a B.T. watching TV.

 

*a few days later and several more ghairs on the chairs*

 

Evan: Mommy.  There’s a sick ghair on your chair.

 

Me: I know, big guy, and he’ll be well soon.

 

 

 

“I don’t care

If you believe it.

That’s the kind of house

I live in.

And I hope

We never leave it.”

    How on earth do you keep up with him?

    Poonch used to LOVE that book! We read it all the time. I just gathered a bunch of books to donate and that one was on the pile to go, but I took it out at the last minute. Too many memories.

    Evan is so cute!

    It probably would have taken me a week to figure that one out without the quote at the bottom, sheesh.

    I’m glad that’s all that was in the pocket! Wockets are kinda cute. Don’t worry — he’ll slow down in another 12 years or so 🙂

    tlc~ Thanks, he’s better. I’m getting a warm spot in my heart too for Dr. Seuss.
    ck~ I think a mile a minute too. That and the awesome reading retention I was born with.
    Gibby~ You can’t give up Dr. Seuss! My mother kept her whole collection for when she babysat little nieces and nephews and for the all important day when she had grandchildren.
    Court~ We tend to read the same books over and over. 🙂
    KathyB!~ In 12 years or so, he’ll hit puberty! Then I’ll have to tie him down to slow him down. . . . unless it’s Saturday and chores need to be done. Then he’ll be asleep.
    Ink~ *bow* Thank you.
