Once in a while, we ask Aaron if he’d like a younger brother, since he already has a younger sister. (Of course we’re not having one anytime soon, maybe in two years) He keeps saying no, so we tease him sometimes and he knows its a running joke around the house.
The other day, on the way to dropping him off to school…
Me: Aaron, you can be a Lion, ok?
Aaron: OK, and baby Elle can be a bunny.
Me: What about Mommy?
Aaron: Mommy, you’re a giraffe, Daddy’s an alligator!
Me: Can your little brother be a monkey?
Aaron: No, I don’t want any MONKEYS in the MIX!
Hubby and I just looked at each other and said, “WhuuuT? Where did you hear that from?” And the reply we got… “I made it up all by myself!”
Ha, Monkeys in the MIX alright! Silly Boy!
