Tiny Talk Tuesday
Tiny Talk Tuesday celebrates our children and their view of the world. They continually make us laugh and by recording their Tiny Talk we can focus on one of the many JOYS of parenting! If your kiddos made you laugh this week (don't they always), then feel free to share the humor! Check out more Tiny Talks with Mary.
Today is Tuesday and I'm finally getting a chance to sit down at my computer (thanks to dh's monitor) and type out a Tiny Talk dialogue! There have been many discussions going on around here about moving, since we are moving out of the only house That Other Kid has ever known (or lived in) in just a few short weeks. Thanksgiving Week to be exact! Nothing like moving over the holidays to reduce this already stressful time, right?!!
Anywhoooo, first discussion was about packing all our stuff into boxes.
"Mom why do we have to put all our stuff in boxes? Why can't we just put everything in the truck and carry it over to the new house like that?"
Uh, yeah can you just picture that one? Let's just load up all those thousands of little lego pieces and toss them in the truck and see how many we end up with in the new place!
Next funny happened the afternoon we went over to actually look at the apartment unit we are going to live in. We went over to measure some things and just take a look at the actual unit. Of course it's empty right now, so appearances are deceiving! "Mom, this place IS HUGE!!!! We'll have PLENTY OF ROOM FOR ALL MY STUFF and all your stuff too!"
Now the funny thing about this statement is we are moving out of a 1800+ square ft home into a 1300 sq. ft. apartment! Yeah....we'll have lots of room, huh?!! (Thus the reason we are selling most everything we don't use on a regular basis!!
The final thing before leaving the apartment That Other Kid said was the thing that cracked me up and still makes me laugh everytime I think about it. He opened the sliding glass door and said, "Where's the BACKYARD?? Where will I play?"
I told him, there is no backyard but we can set the basketball goal/net up on the patio (about 2" x 6") and play there! I also told him there is a park nearby and a couple of good friends to play with so we will adapt and have close friends!!
That seemed to make him happy! Friends always make a new place seem more special!
