2 things Aidric said today that made me laugh:

Actually, he said one yesterday, but I'm just remembering it now =)

We were in the car and he was talking. (He honestly NEVER STOPS talking, it's a constant chatter..Chris says it's my payback b/c I talk so much.) Anyway, he was asking me why I had my window rolled down a little bit, but not a big bit. (his words) I said I was cold, so I didn't want my window rolled down a big bit. He asked, "if you are cold, why do you have your window rolled down?" So, then I explained that since his window was down, there was air pressure in the car that was hurting my ears, so I rolled mine down a little to make my ears feel better. He asked for further clarification on this and I have no idea exactly what I said, but tried to explain the air pressure situation a little further. I heard a "hmmm" and then silence. A few seconds later, he said, "Mommy, I do not know what you are talking about."

Actually, that story reminds me of the other day when I was telling him something and he kept saying "WHAT??" and then he finally said in a really exaggerated but clear voice, "Mommy, I can not understand you." The EXACT same tone I use when I'm trying to get him to speak more clearly b/c I can not understand him! We were driving home from his mother's morning out program. A little boy had had a birthday and brought cookies in for the whole class. The teachers saved them and sent them home with the kids. On the way home, Aidric was asking me who gave him the cookie. (even though he KNEW who it was, he just likes to ask to confirm things). I answered, "Jo Jo gave you the cookie honey", and he said, "Oh. That was so sweet of him."

I really, really wish someone had been secretly filming your no-doubt riveting explanation of air pressure (would have loved to hear that) and Aidric's expression as you were educating him. You two are quite a perfect pair!! =)

And btw, my mom was constantly making Hannah & me roll up our back windows because she couldn't stand the "wa-wa noise." Never knew what she was talking about until we had kids - man, that's annoying!! =)

I was cracking up reading this little story about air pressure just thinking about mom and the "wa-wa noise." Never knew it was air pressure. You've taught me something!
