Littleman's Life Lesson

Whew. I've been busy.

There have been a number of things I could write about- both Littleman and Babyman have had birthday parties (today was Babyman's 1st!), we went on an epic day hike with the boys, I've been planning holiday gifts and foods, and I've sorted through and given away all the baby clothes (save a handful of things for their memory boxes), which has prompted some wistful reflections in me. I want to write.

But, I am TIRED.

So, they will have to wait. However I can't let my fingers clack at the keyboard without relating this recent little gem:

Billy: "So, Littleman. You're a big 5-year old, now. You've lived on this Earth 5 years- tell me, what life lesson have you learned in those 5 years?"

Littleman: . . .

Billy: "What's the most important thing you've learned about life?"

Littleman: (Thinks a minute.) "Don't get killed."

He's 5 and he's got it all down pat.

Hey Kit. You've been leaving sweet comments on my blog and I just wanted to stop by and thank you. I'm feeling kinda bluesy and your comments cheer me up. Thanks.

Well he IS fond of telling me that he knows "everything"!

Your blog cheers me up, so I guess we're even. ;)

Hahaha! A true Scorpio child you have there. We take life very seriously and instinctively understand the fragility of the whole thing. One of my Uncles is a Scorpio, a brilliant man and my sister asked him "What do you think when you first wake up in the morning?" Without out missing a beat he said, "Ha! Cheated Death again!"

LOL! Yes, Littleman spends some time thinking about the deeper meaning of things. And you're right- he does seem to have some sort of intuitive understanding. Babyman's a Scorpio, too- I forsee many interesting conversations around here!
