Two stores, the first from Sara:
Besh had an eye checkup yesterday. We were in the bathroom at the eye MD. Besh saw an environmental awareness poster with an Indian chief and asked who the guy was. I said he was a Native American. We had the following conversation:
Besh: “What does that mean – Native American?”
Mommy: “Well, there were people who lived here before this was even our country. They are called Native Americans. He is Native American and looks like he was a chief.”
“Oh. I bet he was President even before George Washington.”
“Besh – George Washington?!?!”
“Mommy, he was the first President of the United States. For real.”
“Besh, how do you know about George Washington?”
“I read it in a book.”
The book, by the way, was one of the Magic Tree House books Besh and I (Daddy) have been reading at night. We’re up to #25 out of around 44. Oy.
The second story is mine:
Last night I was sitting with Besh as he had some frozen yogurt for dessert. He huffed at one point and then looked at me.
Besh: “Brain freeze!”
“You know, brain freeze is like winter. It’s like you ate winter and it went in your throat.”
In case you didn’t know, “For real” is now the ultimate trump card in Besh’s book. For real.
