Best Day Ever!

I decided to write this down on my blog and not just post it on my Facebook just in case my son tumbled upon my blog and reads it.

Last weekend after quite a hard week he spent at school, my son, his friend, my daughter, their dad and I had an awesome weekend playing, jumping around and simply having a fantastic time. After their dad brought them back from the park, I made a macaroni and cheese dinner with peas and a side dish of salad. While the two were munching away, I asked my son if he had the best day ever.... below is how the conversation went;

Me: Was this the best day ever? (gymnastics in the morning, playing with his friend and his sister at Fashion Island, then at the park).
Jad: No, it was half a best-day- ever.
Me: Then how could it be the best day ever?
Jad: With this... (he gave me a big hug and kiss). NOW, it is the best day ever.

That would warm any mother's heart.  I have to admit that when he first answered the questions with a No, my heart stopped and I was thinking of what other ways we could have pleased him.... goes to show you how little I know what goes on in their pretty little heads sometimes.

Then yesterday morning we had another surprizing answer from my son... The things he comes up with... for a six year old, it really blows my mind;

Me: Jad and Mina, can you come down for breakfast please.
Jad: just minute, I'm having a discussion with Mina.

HI... Thank you for your comment...I checked the website and you predicted correctly... I loved it... the first post about texting and driving at the same time caught my eye and I found it so important to write about... I will have to read more though...
Thank you for the quote as well... lovely as well... I cannot wait for that challenge of yours to begin... I even included it on my calendar.
