Funny Bryce

Bryce crawled up in bed with me this morning as I was laying there half awake listening to Piper starting to rouse. Of course, he came in and started talking and asking where Jason was. Then out of the blue he says, "Mommy, I don't want to be a nurse. I want to be a cheese cutter."

With a big smile on my face, I told him that was fine (thinking about how my brother used to want to be a "meat cutter" when he was little) and I asked him where he would work? Of course, he said he'll work with daddy but then I told him that daddy's company doesn't hire cheese cutters, so the best place for him was probably the grocery store. He was okay with that. I'm guessing he had a good experience with Jason at the deli counter the last time and now wants to invest his future in cheese.

Then at breakfast, both kids were having a bowl of oatmeal. Caroline sucked hers down in usual fashion and Bryce slowly ate his. (I have never seen someone eat as slowly as Bryce.) After Caroline was done, she got up and went upstairs to get dressed and he looks at me and says, "Yuck. I don't want to eat it. Caroline peed in it."

Of course, I assured him she had NOT peed in his oatmeal and I could hear Caroline giggling as she was walking up the steps. But no, Bryce had convinced himself that Caroline had peed in his oatmeal and so he took another bite (why?) and said, "Ew. She peed in it." So I took that as proof he was done and let him go upstairs.

Where this kid comes up with this stuff, I'll never know.

I bet Caroline did something to that oatmeal when you weren't looking....
