Conversation in the van yesterday after school:
son #1 - mom? what happens next year when I go to middle school?
me - you'll get off the bus and let yourself in with your key and wait for me to come home.
son #2 - oh, do I get a key when I get to middle school?
me - no, your brother will be in high school, he'll get home first and he will let you in.
son #2 - oh, so when he goes to college I'll get my own key to the house?
me (in tears) yes, when he goes to college, you'll get a key :(
My boys are only 8 and 10!!! why are we talking about going to college already??? Just a few short years ago they were in PRESCHOOL!!!!!
