Jacob Says

We got Joseph a Hot Wheels race track for Christmas, but it only came with one car.

The boys wanted to play it together and race cars on it, so I assured Jacob that we had plenty of cars around the house we could use.

I found a car and we attempted to use it but it didn't work very well. So I just figured that perhaps they needed to be the Hot Wheels brand.

I gathered up a few more cars and as I handed one to Jacob I said, "Try this one, although I'm not sure it's Hot Wheels."

Jacob took the car, and held it in his hand for a moment while standing very still.

Satisfied, he looked at me and very seriously responded, "Nope, it doesn't have hot wheels, they're cold. But we can try it anyway".


Me: Jacob, what do you want to be when you grow up?

 Jacob: Batman.  Does Gotham City live in true life? Is Batman real?

 Me: Do you think he is?

Jacob: Yes.

I don't think he's going to care if Santa is real or not, but I bet he'll be devastated when he discovers that Batman isn't.


And now for a "You know you're a mom when..." moment.

*clearing throat*

You know you're a mom when...

Someone asks you, "So, what have you been up to lately?"

You get to say things like, "Oh, you know... while the almost four-year old was downstairs sticking keys in the plug outlet and sending sparks everywhere scaring us all to death, the 18-month old was upstairs dumping a brand spanking new bottle of modge podge (aka craft glue) all over the carpet. 

Just the usual.

I live in Wisconsin and there is a town not too far from us called Gotham

Really? Oh my... LOL! I'm definitely going to tuck that little piece of priceless information away. Thanks!

There is one part of the carpet that is a bit crusty.....
