This morning, on the way to get the boys ears checked for the third time, Landon started a conversation with me that went as follows:
Landon: Why aren't we going to school today?
Me: Well, baby, school is closed today.
Landon: Why does it gotta be closed?
Me: It's Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday, so school and work are closed for the day.
Well, that was the end of that. We proceed to the doctor's office where Nixon's ears are finally clear and Landon has a little fluid, but not enough for an antibiotic. Hopefully, they'll clear up on their own. So, we check out and get back in the car. On the way home, it starts again....
Landon: Are we going to the birthday party?
Me: Who's birthday party?
Landon: I don't know.
Me: (Realizing he was talking about MLK) No, there's no birthday party today.
Landon: But you told me at home that it was his birthday.
Me: (Silence)....Well, they're not throwing a party for him today.
I guess he doesn't miss a beat, huh?
