At bed time, with Sam (3, going on 14)
Me: What was your favorite part of the day?
Sam: Those things, up there, that go up up up. (Randomly pointing to the banners I made him for his room when he was a baby).
Me: The banners? Do you like those? I made those for you when you were little! (Getting all sentimental. He finally notices them! How sweet!)
Sam: Yeah. And I want to give them to S’s mommy to give to baby Christina, so she can put them in Christina’s room.
Me: Wait, so you don’t like them and you want to get rid of them?
Sam: Yeah, those are for babies and I’m not a baby anymore.
Tell it like it is, brother.
I guess I should have realized that I was raising up a man.
