Oh lordy...

So, my child is learning something new every day. I am amazed on a constant basis. Kindergarten has been such a life changing year. I love watching him be so independent but it also breaks my heart on many levels. He doesn't need me as much anymore, he can dress himself, he can entertain himself when he wakes up at 6 am on weekends,and he has taken to wiping my kisses off of his face when I kiss him goodnight. Oh I wasn't prepared for that.
But, every now and then, he shows me his innocence and sweetness. The other night we were going over homework. he was talking about what he had been learning and he said "I know how to do shithappens" Um what???? Mike and I both heard it and asked him to repeat himself. "I am learning how to do shithappens". I told him that I couldn't understand what he was saying and asked him to explain. He got frustrated and said "You know, where you take numbers away from each other?" The lightbulb above my head flickered on and I realized he was trying to say...... SUBTRACTION.

And that, my friends, is just another fun story in our lives. It is one for the books and will definetly be one that all of his future girlfriends will hear.
