Freckle Face keeps us laughing. All the time. As we went about our vacation, I knew that I should have been writing down everything that he said, but I remember a few.
On a hike….
FF: What kind of tree is this again?
Me: A Pacific Madrona.
FF: Oh, yeah! I knew that it started with a B. Specific Badrona!
Of course we remember this one..
FF: Whoa! What is that smell? Was that dad?
On the way to the campground while reading the map…
FF: What exit do we need again? We just passsed twenty three zero.
Me: I think you meant two hundred and thirty.
FF: Oh yeah! That is what I meant!
After touching the hot marshmallow roaster (even though dad told him 100 times not to touch it)….
FF: Ouch! That was really hot!
Dad: Are you Ok? Did it burn you?
FF: Yeah, but I’m Ok.
Dad: Can you be trusted not to touch the metal again?
FF: Probably not.
Listening to the radio in the car. Ratt’s Lay it Down comes on (what can I say, my husband is a metal head)….
FF (singing at the top of his lungs): When in doubt…. When in doubt….
I will never be able to hear that song again without thinking of my Freckle Face singing “when in doubt” at the top of his lungs.
