The Sponge

The Boy is a sponge.  He remembers what seems to be everything, except picking up his Legos.  He can hear or see something one time and he will remember.  He may not remember the next day (he probably does) but he will pull things out of the air and remind us of something we said or something that happened.  To me his recall is amazing.

This morning he slept in, granted sleeping in at our house is usually 7:00 am, he slept to a little after 8:00 am.  I had mentioned to him that he slept in past 8:00 am and that it was awesome, he asked, "Do I get a prize?"  I responded, "A prize?!" He informed me that I had said, "If anyone sleeps until 8:00 am they will get a prize."

I more than likely said this as I bribe the kids from time to time.  Although I don't remember saying it and it was probably last summer or before, he remembers and was prompt to remind me.  I think a prize is in order, now if I could the 6:30 am Girl to follow that same philosophy it would be pretty awesome.
