Sometimes I have the funniest conversations ever with Aiden.
Like last night, for instance.
I left a pair of socks on the floor yesterday morning (which is totally unlike me) and when we got home yesterday evening, this was the conversation that ensued.
Aiden: Seriously, mommy? Who left these socks on the floor?
Me: Uh, you see what had happened was...
And once when he thought it would be a good idea to bring a sweater outside with him --
Aiden: I need to bring my sweater because I'm gon' be cold.
Me:(with a raised eyebrow) Gon'?
Aiden: Going to.
Me: Stretch that sentence out.
Aiden: I need to bring my sweater because I'm GOING TO be cold.
Me: (smiles at him and gives him a thumbs up).
(Yes, I'm that anal.)
And once when he just finished completing a 54-piece floor puzzle all by himself --
Me: Wow, Aiden! You did that puzzle all by yourself.
Aiden: Yeah, I'm really great at puzzles.
Me: (Under my breath) Guess we don't have to work on building up your confidence.
And once just because --
Aiden: Mommy, I super love you.
Me: I super love you too A.
And all of a sudden I realized that he went from this:
|[one day old]|
|[silly face. four-years-old]|
|[little man on campus. four-years-old.]|
Man, time flies...
