Lets Go Digging!

So we were at a stop sign in our neighborhood and we saw 2 boys walking down the street with shovels.

Full-sized shovels.

My husband says, "I wonder what those boys are doing with those shovels"

The Boy quickly {and confidently} asserts, "Oh, they're on the school digging team."

I seriously almost peed myself.  

Where does that kid get this stuff?

"Digging team"?  Bwaahahahahahahahahahaa.

I love that he was both quick and confident in his response...these are traits I keep my eye on. You know. Since he's going to give me grandchildren one day.

And you and I will be sliding down ginormous, inflatable slides for said grandchildren. You know we will.

Congrats to Natalie and Kimberly!

Wonder what would happen if I Googled "school digging team"?
Amy said…
Great post. We are having a digging party. Yeah a family here wants a window dug for their basement. I will not be on that team. I will be out of town.

Congrats to the winners.

Me thinks the boy knew what was going on and was completely covering up for the other kids. He didn't want to lose out on his chance to find buried treasure with the other pirates...

And maybe my imagination runs amok sometimes. It happens.

Congrats ladies!

Well just naturally. That was my first thought. "oh it must be the digging team" and then your son said it and I was all "oh yeah mmhmm naturally."

Way to go Natalie and Kimberly...

Tiffany, your timing is impeccable..Natalie's little girl was diagnosed with Sensory Integration Disorder and borderline Asperger's yesterday.

I am confident Natalie's several days of focusing on "Optimism" prepared her to see how bright the future can be now that we have a few answers...we are all very optimistic and hopeful that "Princie's" life will be one of peace and happiness as we help her navigate her way through.

Thank you for inspiring us all!

Oh my gosh, I honestly can not believe I won! I actually have tears right now. I apologize for the emotion, but it's been a tough week, and I KNOW that the focus on optimism helped prepare me for my tough day yesterday.

Thanks Tiffany, really thank you!

Send them over to my place. We're putting our garden in this weekend. Either that or building the chicken coop.
What a cute little guy. You'll be glad you got that one down in writing.
