This morning at the bus stop Colt was running around with the sitter’s kids when he suddenly stopped and yelled to me:
“MOM! *unintelligible something* beautiful flower!!” All the moms (and dads) thought he had found an early flower shooting up (daffodils and tulips will be showing up soon here). I said something like “wow – it’s lovely!” and he burst into giggles.
I went to investigate what was so giggly and went to his side, looking around for the flower. He laughed even harder when I did that…so did his little friend Kelly. I played it up a bit for his sake and soon he was howling because I could not find the flower…! Kelly wiped the tears of laughter from her eyes and finally let me in on the joke.
Oh. Oh my. Oh my, my, my boy. *warm glow* I’m not sure I’ve ever received such a compliment. 😀
