Fiesta and Adultery


This Boy...

Ahh this boy. I love him. I love him with every fiber in my body. But he
tests me...oh Lord does he test me. Is six the official age you begin
testing your parents to see what you can get away with? Or is it just
because he thinks he looks older that he can act older, because he just
does not seem six in any sense to me.


As much as he tests me, he cracks me up though and that makes up for it.

The other day he informed me that my car smelled like adultery. I
understand that this statement requires some explanation. Let me start off
by saying that Blaze forgets nothing. He really doesn't. He is always
remembering the tiniest details of days from even when he was two. He will
constantly say "remember when" and I never remember until he starts giving
more and more details until I do remember.

So let me give you this tiny detail from about two years ago. I put a new
air freshener in my car and James gets in and comments that it smells like
a guys cologne. That's it, no other mention of it.

Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when Blaze was studying on memorizing
his 10 commandments for school. He is just going through reciting them to
me, "Honor thy mother and Father", "Thou shall not steal, " and then he
gets to, "Thou shall not commit adultery" and he pauses and raises his
little eyebrows and just gives me that Blaze look. So I asked him, "Why
are you looking at me like that? Your dad and I don't commit adultery."
And he tells me, "Well your car sure smelled like it
that one time!" I started cracking up but I honestly had no idea what he
was talking about until he reminded me of my air freshener. Let's hope he didn't tell that one to the teacher.

He also told me last year when I picked him up after I had gotten Mexican
take-out for lunch that my car smelled like a you think I could
market an air freshener called "Fiesta and Adultery"??

Maybe I do see the six year old in him here.

Oh my word! He is just cracks me up Bobbi. I get it. I have an almost 6 year old now, and she too remembers EVERYTHING. And yea...even the stuff I was praying she would forget. These pictures of him are so awesome, but I think the last one really shows her dynamic personality. Hahaha...still laughing!
