Conversations Worth Remembering

Tobin: age 5 1/2 
Me: age 31 11/12

Place: Mini Van en-route to MOPS 

When: Two weeks ago

Tobin: Mom, did you know that Beethoven was the first person to invent music?

Me: No, I didn't know that. 

Tobin: Beethoven is my favorite. Do you know why he's my favorite?

Me: (turning down Beyonce' to hear why on earth Tobin enjoys Beethoven) Why?

Tobin: 'Cause his last name's "Tobin"

Crystal said...

Oh, that's precious! I love it! Keep that classical (well, technically Beethoven was right at the beginning of the Romantic time period, too) music rolling!

Kim H. said...

Absolutely Adorable! How'd he take the news when you told him that wasn't how his last name was spelled? HA! :-)

Stefanie said...

One of my favorite Brandon-ism's was this conversation (he was about 8 or 9):

Mom - looking in rearview mirror at scrunched up face while Brandon drinks a Jamba Juice - Are you ok?

Brandon - BRAIN FREEZE! (pause) but only on half of my brain.

Mom - What about the other half?

Brandon - It's a bright, sunshiny day over there.
Still makes me laugh!!

So does that mean your birthday is sometime in March?!!!

Wow, golf skills and intelligence, that boy of yours is pretty amazing.

P.S. - I asked Olivia what she did in class today. The first thing she said was, "We didn't get to watch a movie!" ;)
