wesley – 7 years old and still funny

I made a new soup recipe tonight – Tuscan Bean and Sausage Soup – it was really yummy, and 5/6ths of the family loved it. Wesley, the not-so-surprising 1/6th who didn’t like it, had to be given 4 minutes… or else… to finish his bowl. He ate that soup diligently, and as he was finishing, he looked up at us and said, “This soup is tearing me up.”

I laughed. We all laughed. To which he said, “Malin and Avery don’t even know what that means. They shouldn’t be laughing.” We thought about it a little bit, and then Roger admitted that he didn’t know what it meant either – not in that context anyway. We asked for a definition and Wesley told us that it meant, “It’s making me mad!”

    Yesterday Daniel told me that “this four is really a three”. The things they think of. Grace is going through a whiny phase, but it’s about to drive me INSANE!! Any ideas?
