In Theory...

I went into the kitchen this morning and the boys were eating breakfast. T was having oatmeal (one of his faves) and R was eating Corn Pops. When I entered, T said, "Mom, dad says that oatmeal isn't cereal and you told me it is cereal. So I need to know, is oatmeal cereal?" I said that oatmeal was hot cereal and Corn Pops was cold cereal -- so there were different kinds of cereal. T said to M, "Dad is that what you think too?" M wasn't paying attention at the moment and asked T to repeat what he said. T said, "Dad, mom says in theory, oatmeal is a kind of cereal. Do you agree?"

M and I looked at each other...did he just say "in theory"? Yep, he did. Amazing. He's only four.

Hee hee. Very smart indeed. Personally, I think that sounds just like you. I even read it hearing your voice with a pause after theory. Very cute!

You're right, Jen. I asked M where T got that and he looked at me incredulously (sp?) and said, from you!
