Another Aidanism

Lots to share with you about Aidan…and that will come.

But, as he approaches his fourth birthday — this Thursday — the kid is growing like a weed. So, we went shopping on Saturday to get him a bunch of new shirts. Don’t need shorts for the summer, thanks to my friend Hallie who has three boys older than Aidan and graciously passed some along.

So, one of the shirts, which he’s wearing today is green (his favorite color) and it features a train on the front with the number 17, which has a little glitter on it. His favorite color and one of his favorite things (the train), so this shirt is probably going to be in heavy rotation.

So we’re driving today and he’s yapping away about this, that and the other thing. And then the following comes out of his mouth:

“So, Dad,” he says.

“Yes, bud.”

“There’s a little glitter on my shirt.”

Dramatic pause.

“How cool is that?”

There have been some bumps in the road lately, but when something like this comes, it’s just the best.

What else? I got nothin’.

    I’m a little jealous. In the midst of a champagne hangover this morning, Benj screamed at me because I would not take him to Burger King for breakfast, and then regaled me with stories about the weekend with his dad, who can apparently buy new toys and a television for their room (hi, he’s FIVE); but cannot pay child support.

    Sorry, I didn’t mean to piss on your parade. You know I love me some Aidanisms.

    Kids are a definite escape from the bumps. I can go on for about 2 hours how Buzz Lightyear stole Darth Vader’s helment. Who knew Darth was such a wuss?

    10 years from now he will look at a picture of him in that shirt and say, “Dad! You made me wear GLITTER??”

    Glad you can use the shorts! Going to have to weed out the “small” clothes before summer comes! Watch out, I might be peddling more kids clothes out of the van!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m going to need a sketch of the approximate location of the glitter on the shirt…
