I am constantly amazed by the things that my nieces and nephew say. How funny they are and at the same time how smart they are. Kids are just so much smarter now. Much smarter than I ever was.
They all love to ride in my car. Maybe because it's called the Bunny Mobile as my license plate says "Bunnyvill." All three pile into the back seat, buckle up and the Bunny Mobile as we are cleared for take off. It's normal for the three of them to just start singing. They actually sing really well. They sing Disney tunes that they like. They sing Country songs that their dad likes, and they sing songs by Jason Mraz that my sister likes.
On this particular visit however, their songs were frequently interrrupted by, "I like that house, that car, that dog, that book, etc." Followed by, "I called it first. No one else can have it." What was amazing to me, besides the fact they are total house gawkers like I am, and I wish I would have called a couple of houses first, is that when someone shouted, "I called it first. No one else can have it," that it was as if a law had been passed. There was an understanding to the others, who were not so quick to say it, that they could not have it. Not now, not tomorrow, not ever. It was done. Of course, it doesn't mean that there wasn't occassion for them to complain to my sister and say "how come she always get's the best and he always calls that first and no fair!" when it was something really great, like the giant beach house for sale!
Website. Remember, there is only one. "I called it first. No one else can have it."
