I’m discussing music with Gage.
Gage: “You know, it’s one of those carry juke boxes!”
Me: “You mean a boom box?”
Gage: “Oh yeah, a boom box!”
We’re all laughing.
Quinnlin: “I’m going to try to fart and burp at the same time.”
Me: “Um. Okay.”
At the aquarium looking at the huge tall tank of fish, Gage turns around to me very serious.
Gage: “Do you think they sell sushi here?”
When I told Gage he’d end up in therapy because we were going to be missing his play last week.
Gage: “Yup. That’s when I’ll tell them it all started.”
————Re: us parents going away (ALONE) for 24 hours during a challenging busy schedule.
Me, loud sigh: “Maybe we should just cancel it. Gage sick, the play, you know. There’s Just. So. Much.”
Julian (as he’s cleaning up vomit): “I’m not ready to give up our time away yet.”
Me: “I see that. This is exactly like I pictured our time away starting. Vomit. Stress.”
Julian: “It’s romantic, isn’t it?”
Me: “I am sad to say it is. I’ve never been so touched about you cleaning up vomit.”
Later that day driving to the hotel:
Julian: “Let’s check in, get a drink then take a nap.”
Me: “That is the most romantic thing you’ve said to me in a long while. Besides wanting to go on this getaway during cleaning up vomit I mean.”
Julian: “It doesn’t take much does it?
Me: “Low standards!”
Julian: “That’s the spirit.”
Quinnlin found out about the first pediatrician saying “Take her home and love her as long as you have her…” and that the doctor meant she probably wouldn’t live very long.
Me: “Can you believe that? I mean she didn’t even know what your kidney function was? How could she even say that?!”
Quinnlin: “I want to go and see that doctor right now and say IN YOUR FACE!”
Gage was out of school an hour one morning…a nauseous reaction to a med change and we were discussing it later that night.
Me: “You must have felt really bad because you let me hold your hand, and rub your head.”
Gage: “I was delusional.”
Discussing a plant.
Quinnlin: “Did you know if you plant it outside, it will grow babies. Without a daddy.”
Gage: “Oh, it looks like they skipped a step.”
