When we were in Washington DC recently for Z's 9th birthday, K said something that I think only a 7 year old would say. This was after wandering around the day before looking at the White House, Washington Monument etc, "If that is the Capitol Building then where is the Lower Case Building?"
Z came home from school on the first day of the new school year last week and said that a girl, I shall call her H, likes him. He said she had been giving him 'the eye'. Yesterday he came home and said that she'd been giving him 'the eye' again. Not the 'stink eye' but 'I like you' eye. He said she did it for 12 minutes. I'm hoping he didn't actually time her but is just guessing at 12 minutes. He said all through yesterday she was either behind him in line or he was behind her in line. They were in a group at one point and he had to take something from her hands and she smiled when he touched her hand. After going into a lot of description about what happened when and who did what and when, it would seem I was out of place when I asked "What would you do/say if she kissed/asked to kiss you?". His response was a very loud "Mummy!!" (K is the only one of the two of them who calls me 'mommy' now.) Of course he is now 9 so no doubt he will soon be bringing dates home and I will suddenly feel really old.
