Lately, it seems like Kaden is having much more "adult-like" conversations. This afternoon, he saw this picture of his Grandpa Rysdam in a frame we have. This is how our conversation went.

We went out for dinner with my whole family tonight, which was such a nice, rare treat. My parents are in town for a few days, which means my brothers, their girlfriends, my parents, and the 3 of us spend lots of time together. We decided to go to One Trick Pony for dinner, a favorite downtown place for us. On the walk back to the car after dinner, Kaden noticed that one of the doors was open at the firehouse. Andy walked across the street intending to show Kaden the firetruck as he stood on the sidewalk. However, there just so happened to be a fireman standing there, who let Kaden climb into a firetruck and sit on the driver's seat. He was in HEAVEN! Of course, I didn't have a camera with me, so I had to snap a picture on my Blackberry... not very ideal. Kaden was making siren noises, and saying "smoke, water." Hmm...maybe we have a fireman in training? He even got an official fireman sticker. What a lucky boy.

I got this from a friend of mine, and had to share it. I know this is the story of my life somedays and many of my friends, so I thought you'd all enjoy a sense of the realities of being a mom.
If you give a mom a muffin,
She'll want a cup of coffee to go with it.
She'll pour herself some.
Her three-year-old will spill the coffee.
She'll wipe it up.
Wiping the floor, she'll find dirty socks.
She'll remember she has to do laundry.
When she puts the laundry in the washer,
She'll trip over boots and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her
she has to plan for supper.
She will get out a pound of hamburger.
She'll look for her cookbook
("101 Things To Do With a Pound of Hamburger").
The cookbook is setting under a pile of mail.
She will see the phone bill, which is due tomorrow.
She will look for her checkbook.
The checkbook is in her purse
that is being dumped out by her two-year-old.
She'll smell something funny.
She'll change the two-year-old's diaper.
While she is changing the diaper, the phone will ring.
Her five-year-old will answer and hang up.
She'll remember she wants to phone a friend for coffee.
Thinking of coffee will remind her
that she was going to have a cup.
And chances are...If she has a cup of coffee,
Her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.
