Which means the Roni gets to talk your head off.
We were doing the dishes together and he decided to straighten the tupperware for me. He talked on and on and on and on….
I asked him about his speech homework, “Was it done?”
“Are you ready to turn it into your teacher?”
“So is your homework done or not?”
“So you’re going to give it to Mrs. B?”
“Roni…is your homework done or not? Do you still need to do more homework before you turn it in?”
“I can’t turn it in, Mom, until I see her again.”
“Remind me to ask you the right question next time.”
“Yeah, because I don’t always undertand your questions!”
A few minutes later…
“Mom, whenever you need me, just call me and I’ll be there.”
Immediately, Michael Jackson lyrics started playing in my head. 🙂
I asked, “You’ll always be there for me when I call?”
“Yes. Just call me and I’ll be there…unless I am at school; cause I’ll be on the playground…or at recess…or in reading…”
I went into the other room in time to hear him say something about “arfritis”…by now he was talking to his father.
“Daddy, what’s arfritis?”
Dad, “It’s when your body hurts all over.”
Roni, “Yeah…I’ll be there if mommy gets arfritis….or if she has kidney stone again.”
Thanks, son, for being there for me.
