Mwa-mwa-mwa

It's official. When I speak to them, all my sons must hear are those funny, muted trombone sounds that the Peanuts' characters heard when adults spoke in their world. Today I looked directly at C and made a request. He deigned to notice that I was actually talking to him, turned his face toward mine, and parroted back to me perfectly, "Mwa-mwa-mwa-mwa-mwaaa." Those 'words' exactly.

So that's why I can never get them to put their shoes and coats on in the morning when it's time to leave the house. The mystery has been solved.

b.) i was dumbfounded. couldn't even respond. after all were safe & out of the bath-- went directly to the computer & wrote this post.

a.) i don't think c really even knew what he was 'saying', just being silly. now we had just gone to a kids' concert series, a brass quartet, where he got to blow into a tuba, trumpet, & french horn so maybe he was inspired....
