Asher, age 9
Noe, age 11
Asher: Opening a mini-Three Muskateers bar from his Trick-or-Treat stash, "Why do they call it THREE Muskateers? There is only one piece of candy here!"
Noe's teacher told me that he pulled out a back molar during class this week, walked across the room, and handed her the tooth. Too bad it wasn't Teacher Appreciation week?
Asher told me at dinner one night this week that his friend Ben told him that a girl in the class "liked" him. He told me that after Ben told him, he marched over to her and told her that he was too young to make up with girls. I asked him what exactly making up with girls means? He paused for a couple of moments and said, "I really have no idea."
Noe goes through periods where his OCD is high and this is one of those times. His big thing right now is going through the house constantly turning off lights, shutting doors, etc. I'll be in the kitchen with the dishwasher door and various cabinets open, putting away dishes, and he'll rush in and shut all the doors in a huff, and rush off. Also, when we are using the toilet, Noe will be lurking outside the door and as soon as we start to open the door, he'll rush to it, run over to the toilet, shut the lid, and run out. It feels like I'm in some kind of bizarro skit ala Saturday Night Live.
