Bright and early this morning at 6:45 I go in to wake up Dante.... but he is already awake and quietly jumping up and down on his bed. It was a funny site to see.... like he couldn't wait for someone else in the house to be awake and he was bored.
I got the funny idea to excitedly (in a quiet voice) shout "There is no school today! YEAH!!" to which he stops jumping and I start laughing. He says, "What?!" and I say- "No, I'm just kidding- you have school today, YEAH!" and he is like... "Mom, why did you just say that?" (saying this in his slightly your weird mom voice) I replied, "Because I thought it would be funny." Dante then looks at me, with a little hint of a smile and in ALL seriousness tells me how it really is!
"Mom, THAT wasn't really funny!" to which he then lets out a cackle.... and I then said, "Whatever!" I'm so funny!"-- to which he then reconfirms his statement, "No, mom- that really wasn't funny." AND he is still laughing at me like I'm just the "weird" parent who makes jokes and laughs at herself- (which, I'll admit- is true most of the time) LOL!
Then he asks- why I was up so early- did Ethan come and get in my bed in the middle of the night and pee in it? And I was like- No, actually, it really is time to get up and ready for school.
Seriously- Nothing gets by Dante- at the ripe age of 7 and almost 8, he already knows me and Chet too well. He is one smart kiddo! (And yes- it is true- he gets that from Chester!:)
So, what do ya'll think- am I funny or am I FUNNY?!i
