That Thomas!

Today Thomas (age 10) was asked if the mail had come yet. It's delivered through a mail slot to the side of the front door.

Dad: "Thomas, is the mail here, yet."
Thomas: "No."
Dad: "Are you sure because it sounded like the mail was dropped through the slot just now."
Thomas: "No, Dad, it's not here."
Dad: "Are there still envelopes in the slot ready to get picked up by the mailman?"
Thomas: "No."

Okay. Clearly at this point Thomas is just enjoying saying the word, "No." Rob's no fool, so he had his next question ready.

Dad: "Thomas, is there mail on the floor under the mail slot?"
Thomas: "OH! Yes, there IS!"

Rob rolled his eyes so hard I was afraid they were going to stick that way!

I'm glad to know that I'm not alone. My mother says the "I don't see it" is a boy thing.

And they don't get any better as they grow up, do they???

I've given up asking Rob to get something out of the fridge or freezer. It can be RIGHT IN FRONT and he won't be able to find it. grrrr! :)

Hi Beth!!! :)

So glad you stopped by!

Yeah, Thomas has the same sense of humor as his dad. They love to tease each other. And I have to admit it, I really love watching them in action. :)
