Fish Shop

While at the most awesome aquarium shop, my husband and I have the 4 year old boy with us.  While eagerly running around from one tank to the next, he gets excited to show my husband something.  He's talking nonstop about everything he's seeing and not quite watching anything but the fish, reaches up for Dustin's hand to pull him to the next tank.  With about 3 other people in the area where we were, he had the luck to grab someone else's hand.  Both of them looked at each other for a moment as he turns around to see us behind him instead of to his side.  Quickly he releases the stranger's hand and jumps onto Dustin's leg, wrapping himself all around Dustin and didn't let go for a few minutes.

Smells Good

For Christmas, I received an early present - a Scentsy plug in warmer.  Very festive and smells great!  Well I put it an outlet near the garbage can and here's a conversation that took place around it.

4 year old boy, "Hey, smell this!  It smells really good!"

4 year old girl walks over, leans in around the boy, smells it, and exclaims, "Yes!  That DOES smell good."

Almost 2 year old girl, watching these two, decides she wants to see what they're up to.  She walks over to where they're standing and leans in over the garbage can and takes a deep breath.  Then looks at them like they're crazy and walks off.

A 4 year old boy to his (I'll call best) friend, a 4 year old girl, "Look!  I have a bruise on the top of my foot here."

Her response, "Did the fish jump out (of the tank) and get you?"
