Rhyming is Everything

Caden-4yr and I sat on the couch this morning, a rare lull in a hectic few days.  We’d been talking about his school picnic, Ethan-8yr’s school picnic, our upcoming roadtrip and all the things we needed to do. 

He sighed, rumpled his entire face into a frown, and asked me, “Mom, is this a special moment?”

“Oh yes, Caden-4yr.  This is a VERY special moment,” I said.  I put a hand on each of his cheeks, and smoothed out  his worried forehead until he smiled.  “Why?”

“Well, I heard on the radio that in a very special moment, ‘rhyming is everything.’” 

“Oh.  Well. I don’t know why they said that, but okay.  Hop and Stop.”

“Thank you.”  Then he ran off to test out his glow in the dark dinosaur in the blackness of his closet.

A few minutes later I was wondering about this very odd conversation and then…   ah yes.  I DO remember the radio commercial that I suppose he heard…  a pharmaceutical sort of ad, actually.

And guys, we all know that when it comes to that special moment, timing is everything…”

I agree with Anneballe about cutting those ads. They are normally only on when I have a room full of kids, some of those that understand what is going on and try to hold in a belly laugh hoping not to be asked to explain why…….

We have always known Caden has a poetic soul. I hope he never forgets that rhyming is everything. I love reading about your special moments. J-mom

Uh, ask Thomas about TIMING is everything. Our last two little precious bundles from Heaven were the result of him asking me, “Is it safe?” And me replying, “I think so…” And me being REALLY WAY OFF! ha ha ha :)
