Earlier this week Nathan asked me what should have been a fairly simple question: When is my friend coming for a sleepover?
Pretty simple right, let him know the day and move on. And that is where simple suddenly became a little more complicated.
Seeing the eagerness in his eyes, the excitement to have his buddy over for an evening, I quickly responded “Saturday”
Looking over I saw a puzzled look in his eyes as if he was working hard to process the information. It was one word, I thought what could be hard about that?
As he continued to look at me with a questioning glare, I thought to myself would you please just “stop looking at me like that”.
Braking the uncomfortable silence, he states ”But Mom, there is no Saturday this week”
As he continues staring at the calendar I silently hope that he will figure out himself why there is apparently no Saturday.
No such luck, so I simply say “Turn the calendar page”.
With a smack to his forehead he replies “Oh Saturday this week is in March, not February!”
Yes, and thankfully the world was good again and we found the missing Saturday!
Have your kids said something recently that has provided a good chuckle??
