You've got to be kidding me?

So last night Sam and I were snuggled in bed watching Count with Maisy. There is a segment on there where Maisy is rowing a rowboat and Talulah and Charlie race her to the finish line (all the while the three voice round version of "Row, Row, Row your boat" plays in the background). I started singing along...

Row, Row, Row your boat...
Gently down the stream...


When Sam sits up and says, "No mommy...(garbled) a tree!"

I laughed and said, "You're so silly," and kept on singing.

Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily...
Life is but a dream.


Sam laughs uncontrollably and says, "No mommy...life is up a tree!"

I said, "No Sam, life is but a dream."

Sam shakes his head in disbelief and says, "You've got to be kidding me."

So now the great debate continues on at our house...because I was laughing too much at the little adult comment to argue with him any more.

ROTFL! You know, he's right! Some days life IS up a tree.

You really should send that story in to Parents magazine or something.

I totally agree with Sam.

Life is definitely up a tree. A banana tree, a coconut tree, some kind of nut tree...

But definitely up a tree.
