Tonight the kids were telling me what they wanted to be when they grew up. Brenden (5) told me that he wanted to be a "Fixer" like Daddy and work on building houses and fix things. I explained that was called construction and that he could be a construction worker. (My husband actually doesn't do this for a living, but works on remodeling/repair projects around the house so my son refers to him as a Fixer). Joshua (3 1/2) told me that he wanted to be a Firefighter and put water on fire to save people and cars. :-) I then asked Trinity (2) what she was going to be. Joshua told me Trinity was going to make flowers. Trinity confirmed this by saying "I be a princess and make flowers, okay Mommy?" Too cute!
Then we had some pop left in our fridge...(Let me explain: I NEVER buy pop so you won't find it in our house. This was a rare occasion because someone else bought it and left it at our house. I always buy them juice or milk when we eat out somewhere, so this was a special treat for the kids.)
I poured the pop in their cups and they started calling it the "Burn Drink." I thought maybe they were calling it this because it was dark (almost black) in color and to them it looked burnt. So I asked them why they called it the burn drink. They told me because it burned "just a little bit." I realized they were referring to the fizz (carbonated water). I explained that it was called fizz. Joshua then educated Trinity on the subject just as I has told him just a few seconds ago telling her "Trinity, the Burn is called Fizz" :-)
Then Joshua looked at me and said "Mommy, the pop lives in the ball." I thought maybe he had said bottle instead of ball. So I corrected him and he said "No, in the ball..." then he pointed to the Pepsi symbol on the bottle. :-)
I will forever treasure these conversations.
