The boys are in the back of the car as we are running errands. Liam has fall break, so I get to enjoy my oldest all day! I have missed all the helpful things he does when we run errands; unlock and open the car doors, start the car and many other things. I have also missed the random conversations we have.
In between stores, AJ is sleeping during the car ride while Liam and I are listening to music.
"Excuse me!" comes from the backseat.
"I guess!" I say in response - it's a family joke/response :o)
"Don't worry, mom, it doesn't smell."
I have to process this for a second to get that he had just passed gas and was telling me it didn't have an odor. I start laughing.
"When I farted, the button on my pants popped open!"
That's when I lost it and burst out laughing. Liam begins to laugh as well. (I am also giggling as I rewrite this conversation!)
This is where I realize how much I miss these times. And the silly conversations that come with! :o)
