Too Smart For His Own Good


While sitting on my lap during the Super Bowl this past weekend, Scooter brought up a few things to ponder:

"Hey Mom, is this football game alive?" He said.

"Alive?" I questioned. "I think you mean live Scooter. Yes, it's going on right now in Florida."

"Florida?" "That's where Disney World is Mom. That's where we are going! Can we see the football players when we go? Are they in Disney World?"

"No Scooter, the football players are in Miami."

"Can we go to Your Ami when we go to Florida?"

(Laughing hysterically) "Not Your Ami, Scooter. Miami!"

(Confused) "That's what I said Mom! Your Ami!"

"No Scooter, we cannot go to Miami when we visit Florida."

(Pause) "Will it be gone too, like the football players?"

"No Scooter, it will still be there, it's just too far from Disney World."

(Pause) "Maybe you can ask Daddy to drive?"

"I like that answer too, Scooter."

I'd like to be in My-Ami right about now. We've got 30 inches of snow on the ground, and another foot expected tonite. SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did!

Your Ami would be a great place to be right now--I agree with Melissa!

I LOVE how literal kids can be. Love the simplicity. I can certainly understand Scooter's confusion!
