(to give the right context, in the past every time any of the littles have asked "what are you doing?" no matter what it was my response was "taking a shower" the funny things is they have never questioned it...?... when asked "where are you going?" I had always replied "to China"... that was the reply until this past January when I called W's HS/EC teacher to tell him he would be out for two days. His reply "oh, will you be in China again?" He was dead serious, he had thought that I frequented China often...because my severely speech delayed (apraxic) son had always told him his mom was "in China" or "going to China" needless to say I stopped that and now I just tell them where I am going for real). Now onto the reason for this post.
Sitting at lunch today (H and W eating raisin bran...yippee their favorite) they were having a discussion. W announced to H that he was born in China. "my mom like to go there". H replied "I don't think so but I am not sure" (OF COURSE HE KNOWS... my smart mouthed smart brained seven and a half year old surely knows where he and all of his siblings were born...city, state, hospital, day, month, year...) Subject dropped by both as they asked for seconds. I just had to laugh. Never been out of the country to clarify. Not in this families budget I am afraid... Nothing against China (I think it would be an amazing place to visit.) instead of day dreaming about it I will enjoy my day here in balmy Wisconsin.
