Conversations from the car.

On our way home from the nursing home that FCBMom is currently in, we had the following discussion. It was too cute not to share.

Punk (from the backseat): "Dad? Can we go get a movie?"

FCB: "What is she talking about?"

Me: "There is a Blockbuster over there, remember? She knows there are movies over there because she remembers going there at sometime in the past."

FCB: "We haven't gone there in years! How could she remember that?"

Me: "I told you she was a smart little cookie. She remembers all kinds of things that you think she doesn't. She remembers everything you say, too. EH-HEM!"

FCB: "I know she is really smart, I just wish she would have can't think of the word, but more control of her self."

Me: "You mean more SELF CONTROL?" (This was follow by much hilarity and me almost peeing myself from laughing at him)

FCB: "Are you making fun of me? Are you laughing at me?"

Me: "Of course!"

Punk: "It's OK, Daddy, there is another movie store right down the street!" (Followed by giggling because she thought she was "in" on the joke.)

To give him credit, he is a little frazzled right now. They just moved his mom into this new nursing home on Monday and she has deteriorated rapidly this last week. They aren't expecting her to last more than a few more days since the heart infection is back. We are just trying to get her back to he own home to die in as much comfort as possible. We are all a little stressed and a whole lot of busy. That was why I was so light on posting this week. I promise to get back into the swing of things here really soon. Miss you guys!!

So sorry to hear MIL has taken a turn for the worse. I'll be keeping her in my prayers.

Punk never ceases to crack me up!! The apple sure doesn't fall far from the tree, huh?

I love that Punk tells FCB like it is. She's no dummy. He forgets that kids that age do not have any self control. It doesn't exist till they get into their late 20s.

I've been meaning to comment for a couple weeks now, but what with kidney stones and such, just hadn't gotten to it yet. Sounds like you've got an extra bit of stress in your life. Sorry to hear about your MIL.
But on a bright note, the red underwear and the happy face underwear on your other blog got more than a snicker outta me.

Dang, Punk cracks me up... I remember thinking how smart kids were at that age too bad mine is 9 going on 15. grrrrrrr.
I hope things go ok for the move for your MIL.

Also word vert - mangu - yeah I don't think that really needs a translation, do you?

My brother, who is 16, remembers things clearly from when he was 5. It's amazing. Apparently, I wasn't born with that kind of talent. I forget where my car is parked two minutes after I put it there. ;)
