Take the other night, for instance: Nathan was happily eating spaghetti when suddenly he says "do you know what absurd means Mama?" My jaw falls to the table. He goes on, "It's when something is really weird, like having a shower in your bed...THAT'S ABSURD!" Then he bursts out laughing. Mike and I exchange the "where in the heck did he learn THAT look" and we talk about absurd things for a while. We finally carried on with supper and the silliness. Mike asks Nathan if he could eat his spaghetti with a garbage truck*. Nathan burst out laughing and hollered "oh Daddy, that's just absurd!". I'm ever so amused by this! And shocked, where die he pick up "absurd" from?! He's too smart for my own good, I swear.
*Nathan is obsessed with trash, garbage cans and especially garbage trucks. He tells me on a regular basis "I sure wish I could be the garbage man". When they did their career week at Kindergarten, he dressed up like a garbage me and in fact, he WAVES to our garbage guy! Little nut :)
