Jacob: (running inside, wildly excited) Mommy, Daddy's going to take me to the batting cages (Jacob uses a lot of italics when he speaks).Someday, too soon, I'm sure they're going to distance themselves from me in ways that are much more substantial, and I'll be crushed, but now, I see these boys, who were babies yesterday, idolizing this man who was a nineteen-year-old capturing my heart just the day before that, and it makes me smile.
Me: That's awesome buddy.
Jacob: What are batting cages?
David: (worried) Mommy, I forgot my shoes.
What boys need most at this age is mercy.
David: (swatting) These mosquitoes are really annoying.
Me: I know. I meant to bring bug spray, and I forgot.
David: (shocked and annoyed) I can't believe you forgot the bug spray. I wish you didn't forget it.
Me: Seriously??? Do you want to continue this conversation?
