Despite all of that, my son is the coolest kid that ever lived. Seriously. I've started putting a weekly menu on our dry erase board on the kitchen to avoid arguments over dinner, so the boys KNOW when their scheduled good-but-not-good-for-you dinner is (they pick dinner on cheat night), and so Mr. D can't use a lack of knowledge as an excuse for not starting dinner when he beats me home.
So this morning we made a change to the menu for tonight. Just one. And he looked at me and asked:
"Seriously? You've deviated already?"
We read a lot.
He's also the coolest kid that ever lived because we've already pulled out Halloween decorations while Mr. D was still at work. He's one of the only people I know that digs Halloween as much as I do. And that's awesome, because then I have a legit excuse for pulling it all out.
Best. Kid. Ever.
