A Rhyme.

Cougar: "Mom, what is a rhyme?"

Me: "You know what a rhyme is. It's two words that sound the same."

Cougar: "Oh! I know a new rhyme! Thanksgiving! Party! That rhymes!"

Me: "Yes, yes it does."

I have found it very hard to train Cougar to close the bathroom door behind him when he's done. He just can't be bothered with something as time consuming as shutting a door! So I find myself yelling "Phoenix! No! No toilets!" quite frequently while running to try and stop him before he gets his hands in the water. It came as a surprise today when roles were reversed.

I was scrubbing the toilet. (I know, Yay for me!) When in toddles Phoenix. He looks at me. He looks at the toilet. He looks back at me and shakes his head in a very silent, but understandable "Mommy, no, no, no." Then wobbly he turns around and heads back out of the bathroom.

Cougar was watching some obnoxious commercial and we had the following conversation.

Cougar: "Why do they try to get us to buy their christmas stuff?"

Me: "Because they'll make lots of money if they can get people to buy their junk."

Cougar: "Mom! It's not junk. If it was junk it would have dirt on it."

I can't tell you how many different times he's quoted commercials at me. He watches Qubo and they tend to have the infomercial type commercials. He's told me all about Snuggies, Hollywood Bumpits and the Perfect Brownie Pan. If you no idea what I just said then, lucky you. Time to turn off the TV and read some books. Books never have commercial interruptions. :)
