This week Elijah and I were in the car driving out of our neighborhood when we saw a deer running by a patch of woods. He was so excited and wanted to tell his daddy about it. A few days later our whole family was in the car driving when I remembered the deer. Here's the conversation.
Mommy - "Elijah, tell your daddy what you saw this week"
(As I was looking at him...at first it didn't register, but then he remembered and his eyes lit up).
Elijah - "I saw a (crescendo-ing excitement)....A....A....KANGAROO.
(The whole family laughed a lot and I mean a lot)
Daddy (while laughing)- "Really"
Elijah (Not laughing, deadpan serious) - "Yeah, it was so cool".
For those of you who didn't know...we moved to Australia!!
