Brian was lecturing Colby because he was complaining about not having anything to play with in the car, even though there were several toys on the seat beside him. Brian's final comment was, "It sounds like you just won't be happy then, Colby."

That's when little brother piped up from the back seat and said, "Yah! You can be like that little piggy. He cried alllll the way home."

Showing my age?

This morning Colby asked me how old I was. When I told him 32, his eyes got all big and his mouth dropped open. After getting over the shock, he exclaimed,

"I can't believe you're that OLD, and you don't even look old!!!"

Over dinner, Colby was talking about wanting an iPhone. He wanted to know if he could get one when he was older, how much they cost, and how long it would take to save up that much.

I explained to him how the phone itself has a price, and then you have to pay a fee every month to be able to use it. In our case, it's about $120. Having recently received about $100 in birthday money from various donors, he had a rough idea of how much that was. He gets $20/month in allowance, so he quickly realized that he'd need a big raise before signing up for an iPhone.

Later in the evening, he said to me, "Mama, your iPhone must be really special to you."

Not sure I wanted to hear the answer, I asked, "Why?"

"Because you have to pay for it. I mean, you pay more than $10 for it! That's like... a lot!"

I was just glad he didn't say, "Because you use it ALL THE TIME."
