“Mickey go fast! Mickey go to the mall”
Owen: I go down
Me: you go down?
(The car starts going down hill)
Owen: go down! (Puts arms up like on a rollercoaster) whoooooo!
(Under a blanket) “mama! Mama! Go under here? (Whispers) it’s scary”
“I have to wait. I have to wait go mmmmmnastics, jump with the kids!”
Owen: mama, you OK?
Me: my nose is a little runny
Owen: oh no, nose is snuffy?
Me: yeah, I’m a little stuffy
Owen: mama, wait right there
(He goes into the dining room and searches for something on the table. He comes back with three napkins)
Owen: here, it snuffy for nose
(After tucking him in, he holds out his arms for a hug) “thank you mom!”
“Sorry, I can’t stay, I have to go Christmas shopping.”
