Dude...

Driving down the road with The One Who Gets Away With Murder yesterday...he and I had the following conversation:

Him: Mom, what are those things called that are wiping the rain away?

Me: Windshield wipers.

Him: Winsee wipers?

Me: No...WIND.SHEEELD wipers.

Him: Wind SHELL wipers?

Me: No...listen. WIND.SHEEL.D wipers.

Him: Mom, I can't understand you. Spell it.

Me: Dude...you can't read.

If it's true that you get smarter with age...then this guy needs to live to at least 100...because he's got a lot to learn!!! Bless his heart!!

Haha, as always your children's comments have made me laugh out loud. I think he's going to be a good looking fellow if he grows up, so maybe he can just get by on his looks if everything else doesn't work out. (Haha!)
