This morning, Hubby and I were getting ready to go to work. He leaves for work far earlier than I do. This morning, the two littles were not awake yet. (Sweet Pea usually greets the early weekday mornings with whimpers and whining about how tired she is. We tell her to go back to bed, but she never does. She doesn't want to miss saying goodbye to Daddy.) As I kissed Hubby goodbye, he said "This is how I like to leave in the morning. It's all quiet and there's no "still tired whining"." I agreed with him, to which he replied "Well, you'd better go now, then, they'll be up any minute." (Hee!)
Moments later, we heard Buddy waving and saying goodbye to Daddy through his bedroom window. (Yikes! They were awake and I didn't have to make my get-away!) It wasn't long after that when Sweet Pea appeared, too.
Things were going well this morning, and before it was even 5:45am, Buddy and I were dressed. Sweet Pea was on her way to getting ready as well when I made her a deal she couldn't refuse. "Honey, if you are all ready to go -- all dressed and your teeth and hair brushed, too -- we can watch a little bit of television before we leave for K's today.
Unless we're staying home, I never let them watch television in the mornings. It's just too hard to get them ready to leave if they're spacing out to Dora. Sweet Pea wanted me to sit with her on the couch for a bit, and as I did so, Buddy began to get agitated. "Bon, Mom...BON"
Buddy, standing/whining/hanging by my knees now: "Bon, Mom...BON"
This went on for a few minutes.
Me: "I'm sorry, hon. I don't understand... Ball?"
Me: "Shake Your Bon-Bon?"
Finally, I gave up and said "Show me."
And after that, I followed him out of the family room, through the kitchen, up the stairs into his room, and over to the dresser.
"Bon, Mom", Buddy said, pointing to the top of his dresser. I saw the toy that was in his Happy Meal last night. It is a little notebook, a 'holder', and a pencil.
Buddy: "Bon, Mom. Yeth."
So, there you have it. Bon is Pen which is really a pencil.
