Riding in the car on the way to the gym this morning. Blake says “Mom, listen to this!” This is a statement I hear quite often. Typically it is something he thinks he knows that I don’t. Sometimes it is his way of questioning something he has read, but it is always some sort of fact.
I gave him my typical reply of “What Blake?” Usually this results in his statement, but this time he then states “Wait, Dad should hear this too.”
I look at Richard and said “That’s good since we are all in the car together.” “Wait, can Colby listen too or should he plug his ears?” This had us laughing. He did go on and tell us what he wanted to say in the first place. I couldn’t tell you what it was, something he read in whatever book he was reading at the time.
Blake is very smart, but there are times when he says things that just makes you shake your head. Ummm did you think this through before talking?
Now, don’t get the wrong impression of the family. We don’t just pick on Blake. Colby gets ribbed quite a bit for the things he says and does too. (Richard and I pick on each other too) I just haven’t had a oh that’s so bloggable moment based on Colby since I decided to make my blog about our real life fun and frivolity. But, don’t worry there will be lots of Colby stories to come too.
