That’s Life

Char and Cal are playing Life on the living room floor. I’m upstairs and hear Char using a firm-bordering-on-mean voice. “Charlotte, be kind.”
Charlotte: “I am! He just got a FLAT tire right before MARRIAGE.”

In early June the girls went to camp so I just had Calvin (3.5yo). I took him out for lunch and then to a park he’s been begging to visit (it’s in a sketchy part of town but I was comfortable going in broad daylight).

When we pull into the driveway, Calvin says, “It’s been a long day.”

I say, “I had a really nice time. Thanks for going with me, buddy.”

Calvin responds, “I would have been lost without you. I’m glad we went together.”

Food Request

Calvin, this morning: “I’m still hungry.”
“We have apples and cereal bar.”
Calvin: “No, my tummy is asking for donuts.”
“You already had a donut.”
Calvin: “My tummy is asking for LOTS OF DONUTS.”
