"Mama, I'm gonna go to ballet cwass, and I'm going to stay all by my self-sis and the mothers and fathers stay at home and be happy. Isn't dat so nice of me Mama?" - Parker


I'd texted Josh from the hospital while we were waiting for Baby Arlo to arrive, telling him that the nurses had kicked us out of the hallway. He wrote back:
"Fin says to have the boss of the hospital kick the nurse out"
We went back and forth for a bit and then:
"Fin wants to know what you think about his idea"
I said "Tell him if I knew who the boss was I would!"
"Fin says to look it up on your iPhone"

Griffin Daniel. Taking care of business when the adults won't.


Its funny how striking a new word sounds when your six year old uses it. I can't for the life of me remember what we were talking about, but I asked Fin something along the lines of, "Would you want to do that too?" and he answered, "No, I just feel more cautious about it."

Parker's in the back seat trying to sound out a word on the bus next to us.
"Oh- Kah - Ta - Ah. Oh-Kah-Ta-Ah. Mama, what does Ohkahtaah mean?"
Puzzled myself, I looked over at the bus. It was an OCTA bus (Orange County Transportation Authority)
