Over the weekend, Brian overheard Eli and Braedy talking about how Texas is "dumb." Today, Braedy came up to me, proud as a peacock, and said, "Mom! I can't wait to tell Eli this!". That, in itself, is a rarity. So, when I asked why he was so excited, this was his story. During some song or pledge they sing regarding Texas at school today, he sang, "Texas, our Texas, so wonderful and so dumb" rather than "so wonderful and great" because apparently, Eli convinced him that would be funny. And, in the process, Eli told him that every day last year HE said those words, too. Braedy had the good sense to whisper "so dumb", but some of the other kids heard him. Eli adamantly denied planting the idea in Braedy's head and ever saying that last year, he said anything of the sort. But, overall we're laughing not only at Braedy's audacity, but Eli's tenacity. And, honestly, we have been waiting for this moment for years. We always thought Eli could convince Braedy to do things, and Braedy would do them if he thought they were funny. Ah; such a proud parenting moment.
This evening, Braedy said: "Mom, if I put this in my butt, I would know where it is!"Insert "as$" and hear Brian saying, if it was in your ____ you'd know where it was", and you'll know where Braedy learned that saying.
Finally, we had our first sweet corn of the season tonight.
While eating it, Braedy observed, "you know, if you take these little pieces off of this big thing, you get corn!". Indeed you do, little man.
