It's not rocket surgery

Noah mixes his metaphors. He comes by it honestly, as you can tell by the title of the post, which is something Aaron and I do deliberately because we think it's funny (although I think it started as a slip of the tongue). We're odd that way.

In any case, it must be genetic, because Noah does it too. Well, mainly only with one saying that I suppose is not really a metaphor. Ah well. Noah has mixed up the saying, "See you later, alligator!", "After while, crocodile!"

He says, "See you later, crocodile!"

It's not terribly funny, at least not a rolling-on-the-floor funny, but it always makes me smile.

The other night he was in bed with me for one reason or another, and I didn't feel like putting him back in his bed, and I was definitely more tired than he was, because he kept jabbering on about stuff, and I had to keep telling him, "Shhhhh." Finally he said, "Good night, crocodile." I chuckled and replied, "Good night, crocodile", to which he replied with a laugh, "You're funny!"

It's just silly stuff, really, but it's the sort of stuff that makes life good. I wanted to share it with you.

That's so sweet, Amy. Don't you just love those moments? Today I said, "Hi honey!" to Ellie after her nap, and I heard Jack say, "Hi. Honey." behind me. Made me smile. Thanks for the congrats...and seriously, can I get a jacket? I would wear it...well, maybe not proudly, but I'd wear it. It's cold here. Glad we're in the same boat......glad to know you're surviving. :)

Well, I laughed out loud! I'm thinking you've got the title of a delightful new children's book!
