Exhibit A: We recently ceased doling dessert upon completion of dinner (it was usually a cup of mangoes or a bite of a sweet) because we reasoned that the extra sugar was causing him to have overly vivid dreams from which he woke up screaming a few times a night. After a few dessert-less nights, he concocted this little gem of an argument: “Mommy, I do think I should be allowed to have desserts after dinner again because it’s not true that I have crazy dreams from the sugar when I eat desserts. I only dream about how much I love you and that’s not crazy!” Nice try.
Here’s his take on blogging and home design:
What’s a blog? A blog is like something that you put on a photo and take a photo then you put it on the computer and look at the pictures.
Why does mommy blog? Because she loves blogging and that makes her happy and if she don’t then that makes her sad. That’s so true!
Why does mommy have so many emails? Because she likes everybody and she likes some people that she doesn’t know. I think he’s referring to my blogging friends.
What’s your favorite room in the house and why? Uh, uh, my room. Because it has all the stuff I need and your room doesn’t have much stuff it only has one cabinet and my room has a bunch of cabinets and it likes me.
What’s your favorite decoration? You. What does that mean? It means people.
How would you describe mommy’s decorating style? By looking at what color it is and what name it is. If it doesn’t have a name then I will give it one. The end.
Okay, last one. Is mommy clean or messy? Clean and messy sometimes cause you made a big mess in my room. I’m in the process of moving things around so yeah, it’s a bit messy at the moment and he hates it!
Also, I may have had to omit the word ‘poop’ a time or two. Just keeping it real!
I know it’s been a bit unusually kid-heavy around here lately but I do have some bigger home projects coming up. I’ll see you guys back on Monday when I take on another One Room Challenge. This time I’m tackling our bonus room in just six weeks. Eek!
