My nephew, Wade, just turned 9 years old and informed me the other night that I am never allowed to adopt a little boy (he knows that I can't have children). When asked why, he said that he is my only aunt boy, and my only baby, and doesn't want me to ever have any other babies if they are boys, because he's the only one. He kept repeating that he was my only "aunt boy," which I couldn't figure out what he meant. He finally told me he was my aunt boy because I'm his aunt. I asked him if he meant nephew, and he said yes, that he just couldn't remember that word, but aunt boy is correct because I'm his aunt, and he's my boy. Lol. That kid cracks me up.

For the record, he's fine if I wanted to adopt a girl, just no boys, unless he could be the uncle. He's an only child, and his parents are divorced, so he's a little confused on what would make him an uncle, lol. I think he's confused because his only cousins on his dad's side of the family are grown, and one of them just had a baby. He's pretty sure he's that baby's uncle and not her cousin.

Said with the maturity one does not usually find in little boys, or big boys for that matter. If you do adopt a little boy, and he wants to be Uncle Wade, then let him be Uncle Wade. That would be adorable!

The other night, the 5 yo crawled into bed with me.  She's been running a fever so extra snuggles are allowed.  I'm lying on my side and suddenly I feel this little hand run down the back of my head and begin patting my back.  "It's okay, Mrs. Pickles" she whispers.  Two more pats and then I hear her snoring.   ???  I don't even know, but it was so hard not to laugh.

I think it would, too. He seems to really want to be an uncle, which is cracking me up. He understands perfectly well that I'm his aunt because his mother is my little sister, and that my brothers are his uncles for the same reason, but he's not too sure I know what I'm talking about when I tell him his baby cousin is not his niece. His only brother (my sister's second baby) was born at 4 months, so he's not here, and Wade doesn't remember him being born. He's very interested in brothers, and I think he'd like one, though he's not sure about having a sister, lol. He is being raised around my 12 year old sister and as the next oldest child in my family is 27, she's being raised like an only child as well and they are together every day (Dad is retired and picks them up from school, keeping Wade until my sis is off work), so she's the closest he has to a sibling.

One from one of the preschoolers today:

bit of background: the admin also doubles as the prek teacher, and her daughter goes to the school. Said child is four.

Well it was time for me to bring the toddlers out into the big room where the schoolagers are.

We (the owner, admin, other coworker and I) are talking a bit, and suddenly this happens:

AdminsDaughter: Mom! Can I have a baby?
Admin: No.
AdminsDaughter: *points* I want -that- one.

Now I think she's pointing to a doll, meaning she had wanted to take one of the baby dolls home or something.

Admin: DaughtersName! She is not ours! We can't take her home! Miss OtherTeacher wouldn't like that.

I look over, to see her pointing at my coworkers twenty month old daughter.  ;D

All four of us look at eachother amused, and then five seconds later the Admin says exactly what i am thinking:

Admin: Oh yes, its just like we're shopping for children. I don't want this one *points* I don't want that one *points* not this one... I want -that one- *emphatic point*

We broke down into helpless laughter.

I hear the older daughter (7.5) breathing through her mouth as though she's just run a marathon.  Her gasping breaths are  punctuated by short periods where she's holding her breath, then exhaling heavily.  After about 30 seconds of this, I poke my head into the room to see what's going on.

She's peeling a hard-boiled egg.

"Why are you breathing so heavily, honey?"
"It's hard to hold the egg off the plate to peel it.  I'm tired."

My granddaughter (6) wanted to have a fire the other night. I told her we'd have to go outside and get all the leaves off the patio before we could start a fire. A little while later, she asked if she could go out and play with her chalk. I said sure, it was nice enough outside. She came in about a half hour later and said she used the "leaf scraper thing" and scraped all the leaves into a big pile off the patio.

I said "you used what?"

"The leaf scraper thing, you have to look grandma."

I'm trying to figure out what a leaf scraper thing is, I said "the rake?"

She says "Yeah" to me, like I should know the alternate name for a rake is "leaf scraper thing." 

We did have our first fire for the year.

My 4 year old granddaughter took quite a bad tumble off a playground structure, face-planting right in the dirt, and cutting the inside of her lip. There was a first aid attendant who took a look at her and got her some ice for her lip.

The whole time she was being cared for, her little brother (2 in May) was saying “she hurt herself? I help, I help.”

He helped by grabbing a stuffed toy out of the diaper bag and putting it beside her. I guess stuffies fix everything!

It was a lovely day the other day, so we took everyone outside. The schoolagers decided to play a game of dodgeball.

One of the teams had a bunch of five year olds, so Miss Nikko decided to even out the score by joining.  ;D Only for me to realize that its been *years* since I've played.

The following conversation happened between me and one of the nine year olds after the five year olds got out and we were the only ones left.

Me: *to the nine year old* You realize I haven't played this for years right? *dodges ball*
Him: I know.
Me: You realize you're carrying the team now right?
Him: Yeah I know.
Me: *jokingly* You realize I am completely useless at this right?
Him: *in a serious voice but with a grin on his face* I know.
Me: ... *is hit with the ball and gets out*
