Calling it like it is

We were trying to fill up the last half hour or so of time before eating dinner and getting the kids to bed. Kydon had the idea to head over to the park across the street and attempt to get some mistletoe out of a tree there.

It was freezing cold, so we knew we wouldn't be long. We drove through the park a little, and didn't really see any. Abigail, on the other hand, insisted that she saw some on many of the trees we passed. We finally just stopped and got out, and went for one of the little branches that Abigail was insistent on.

We spent a few minutes gathering the leaves, then we got back in the car and drove home. As we pulled into the driveway, Jack started getting upset. Only he wasn't crying, he was just mad... (and please imagine the following with the speech delays- it makes it that much cuter!)

"Well! Dad was dumb! Is dat all we doin?? Just go pick a few leafes and den come home?? Dat SO dumb!"

I was cracking up! And I gotta say there was a part of me that agreed!

You should have called--Saturday I was at a store and there was a couple cutting things out of all the trees--when I went by they said they were cutting mistletoe.
