And that's a wrap!

2009 has come and gone and seemingly faster than any other year so far. I thought it might be fun to ask the kids what their thoughts were on the New Year coming in and this is what they had to say:

Me: Lydia, did you know that tonight is a special night?
Lydia: :nods head yes:
Me: Why do you think tonight is special?
Lydia: Because I think it's Christmas!
Me: Do you know what year it is?
Lydia: Ummmm....grandmommy's year!
Me: Do you want to make any plans for this new year?
Lydia: Ummm...ummm, I want to play like I'm at school.

Me: Bryan, what is special about tonight?
Bryan: That it's happy new year.
Me: What does that mean?
Bryan: That means we get to celebrate and I get to kiss you tonight.
Me: Do you know what year it is going to be?
Bryan: Happy New Year.
Me: Do you want to make any big plans for 2010?
Bryan: Ummm...Can we go to Disney?
Me: We will. Is there anything else you want to do this new year?
Bryan: Play at Disney.

Me: Do you know that tonight is the last night of 2009?
Elysa: I'nna go potty.
Me: Okay, dear, but can you first tell me what you want to do in 2010?
Elysa: I stink-it. (stinky)
Looks like 2010, just like every other year since 2004, will be another potty-training year for us. Crossing our fingers that it will be our last year that "stinks"! Happy New Year!

I am so excited about this being Grandmommy's year according to Lydia. Looks like Bryan's Disney wish will come true. Just think next New Years Eve you can sing "Old Lang Diapers".

Such great answers! said...

What great answers! If only we could go back to those years when things were so easy and easy to explain!
