...a Mom: Things That Make You Go Hmmm....

The boys were outside playing earlier, and while they usually get along great, there's almost always one fight. This time it was over binoculars. Rho wanted the blue pair, Xan had them first, so he was stuck with the green ones. But, not satisfied with green, he swiped the blue which caused the fight. Both come in complaining about the other

Rho: I told Dad on you!
Xan: (coming in after) I had them first.
Rho: No you didn't...

And as it turns out Rho lied about who had them first (Xan's a lousy liar, and Rho, well, let's just say he'd clean up on that game show with the lie detector on Fox). After a short time out, JB tells him that he should apologize to his brother for taking the binoculars and that if he wants to use a pair, he's going to have to use the green ones.

Rho's musical response?

"It's too late to's too late....It's too late to apologize..."

I start laughing- because the kid's got a damn good sense of humor (which, of course, he gets from me). He's also a little too smart for his own good.

Did I mention he's only 4 and a half?
