Waking Up

I woke up this morning to my phone ringing.

Melissa:  Hello?
Becky:  Did I wake you up?
Melissa:  Uh....
Becky:  I just wanted to let you know that Preston is calling people on Bill's phone.  He's called us twice this morning to invite us to a surprise party for his animals.
Melissa:  Bill, quick!  Get your phone away from Preston!
Bill:  Give me that!
Carter:  Daddy, how did you know we were using your phone?


Melissa:  Preston, what did you say on the phone?
Preston:  Uncle Matthew said, "Are you supposed to be using your daddy's phone?" and I said, "Bye!"

The Sound of Music

Our kids watched the Sound of Music for the first time this week.  Carter was asking about the song, "Sixteen Going on Seventeen", wondering what "going on" meant.  We explained it to him.

Carter:  So, I'm seven, going on eight, right?
Melissa:  That's right.
Preston:  And I'm five, going on six?
Melissa:  Right.  Avery, what are you?
Avery:  I'm three, going on fourteen.
Bill and I agreed that she was right.
