2) KJ came home from school on Friday after TWELVE kids had been at our house for a playdate. He looked around at the mess and informed me "Mom, if there are going to be a lot of kids here, I think its a good idea if they practice the 'only get one toy out a time' rule, don't you?" yeah, that might have been wise.
3) While a friend was visiting, KJ was showing her his kite. The kite he got for his birthday. In May. That his parents still haven't let him take out of the package (in our defense WE WERE MOVING). I thought bemoaning that he hadn't gotten to fly it would be the extent of the conversation, but he had something more urgent to talk about. He read her the kite safety instructions. Like "don't retrieve from power lines". After going through the list with her, he commented "don't you think they are forgetting a few things. They should have put 'don't fly kites in the house' and maybe should have said 'don't fly kites in fire'. Those would be good rules to add." I think I see a future for him in this!
