Jonathan: "Girls chat too much. They are too chatty."
Momma: (laughter) "You are probaby right."

So, today, I, Momma, got quite confused on what day it was. I knew it was Tuesday but I thought my Wednesday activities were happening. I fed the kids an early dinner and prepared them for the fact that our babysitter was coming. I was headed 2 houses down to a Pampered Chef party. I munched a half a hot dog and looked forward to the yummy Pamered Chef food. When it got close to time, the older boys went on the front porch to wait for our babysitter. After a bit, I decided to bring Thomas out in the front, also. The boys got their bikes out and were riding around in the driveway. The babysitter was to be there at 6:15. She is usally early. When it got to be 6:20, I was surprised. But, as it approached 6:30 and there was no sign of her, I was concerned. My concern was only outweighed by the confusion I felt when there were no cars down the street and no sign that anyone was at the house of the party. I gave my friend a quick call and no one answered. I was really confused. Finally, I got out my laptop and checked the E-vite that was sent out. The party wasn't for Tuesday, it was for Wednesday.

Momma: Jonathan, I am so confused. I thought the party was tonight but it is tomorrow. Jessica [our babysitter] isn't coming tonight.
Jonathan: She isn't?
Momma: I just got it all confused. Have you ever gotten confused?
Jonathan: Nope! But, maybe I will when I am older.

The power of Jonathan's Pinch

David: "Momma! Momma! Jonathan put a hole in my arm."
Momma: "What?"
David: "Jonathan pinched a hole in my arm."
Jonathan: (Laughter) "There is no hole in your arm."
David: "YES, there IS."
[Momma inspects the arm.]
Momma: (stifling laughter) "Oh David, there is a scratch on your arm. Jonathan..."
