they’re on to me

Tonight, this exchange occurred as I was helping the boys brush their teeth:

FERGUS: Mommy, do you fink weindeers wike wain?

MOMMY: No, I don’t think so. I don’t like rain.

FERGUS: I fink dey do wike wain. You know why? Cause weindeers? Have wain? In dere deer NAMES.

MOMMY: Wow, you’ve got a point there, Fergus.

I smile to myself, as he resumes brushing his teeth. There is silence for a moment.

COOPER: Mom, you should put that on your blog.

I’m getting similar comments from my kids, now that they’re on to me. It’s either, “You should put that on your blog,” or “You’re not going to put that on your blog, are you?” My friends are starting to get suspicious as well. It’s a tricky gig sometimes. 🙂
