Friday Funnies- You Don't Know How To Drive!

Now that I'm caring for a 2 month old in addition to a one year old, I'm often asked how I run errands and do my grocery shopping.

My reply? "I don't." 

Not while they're here, anyways.

This reminds me of a time several years ago when I had two toddler boys in the house during the week. At the time, my husband was leaving for work at 6: 30 in the morning and because we were a one-car family, unless I had an appointment or something where I needed the car, I was home most days without a car.

It is a bit of a hassle anyways to load toddlers and carseats to go anywhere so I happily kept them at home where we played and walked around the neighborhood and made regular trips to the park.

Come to think of it, I was quite productive at home in those days!

My husband returned home early enough to run errands to the bank or post office if needed.

Well, I never thought anything about this little set-up until after about 2 years, one of the boys (at about 3 years old) said to me one day:

Boy: "Mary, you don't know how to drive."
Me: "Yes, I do. I can drive."
Boy: "No, you don't."
Me: "Yes, I know how to drive."
Boy: "No you don't! You tell Andy go to store!"

That is such a cute little story. :)
Kids can be so funny.
Have a great weekend.

So funny! I'm always amazed at what kids have concluded by their observations.
