Both C & O ended up missing an entire week of school with this recent illness, and thus did not have a chance to tell their friends about the arrival of their new baby brother right away. By the time they did make it back to school, clearly other more interesting things had happened...
Me: "C, are you excited to go back to school tomorrow?"
C: "Yes! Hey Mom, maybe it will be my turn to share?!"
Me: "I bet you will get a chance, since you've been out for a week. What do you want to share with your class?"
C: "I know! I'm going to tell them how Daddy and I finally beat the Stormy Shores world in the new DK game."
Me: "Really? ........ You're going to share about Wii games?"
C: "Yeah! Because it was so hard! And we finally beat it!"
Me: "Hmmm...(looking pointedly between C and the baby in my lap)...Isn't there anything else that happened last week that you want to tell your class about?"
C: "Oh, right. The baby. Well, I want to share about that too, but I might only get to share ONE thing!"
Me: "And you think the Wii game is more interesting than having a new baby brother???"
C: "Well, Mom, they are both pretty fun. But that Wii game is REALLY hard!!"
