J: Mom, you are so sweet.
Me: Thank you, honey. You’re sweet too.
J: Mom, you’re such a good driver.
Me: Thank you, sweetheart.
J: Da-because (random random random) it’s time for Friday fun!
J: Da-because we do ipad, or extra recess, or..
Me: I understood Friday Fun. I didn’t understand everything that came before.
J: Do they have a pool?
Me (starting to feel tired, and we’ve only just left the subdivision): Um…lots of people have pools, who are you talking about?
J: Da-because Miss Dolores said no pool because it-it-it-it is too cold!
Me: Yes, when we went to her house in December it was too cold to get in the pool.
J: Mom I like you.
Me: I like you too, honey.
J: Da-because he has a motorcycle!
Me (glancing at the man speeding away from us): Yes, he has a motorcycle.
J: Why does he have a motorcycle?
Me: I don’ t know, he just does.
J: Mommy, (random random random while I’m trying to find the turn into the gymnastics facility)???????
Me: Honey, I’m trying to be a good driver right now, can you be quiet?
