I Thought Moms Knew Everything

... but apparently that is 3 year olds.

A: Mom, where did the sun go
M: It went to bed it was tired
A: Actually, mom, it went down down down, the sun just went down.
M: You are right, Aubrey, the sun went down - but it was sleepy so it went down to bed.
A: Mom, it just went down and it will rise back up when I wake up from nap time.
A: Mom, you need to order 3 hamburgers for me because Iam 3. How many are you again? You need that many hamburgers - is that a lot of hamburgers? Will they make that many hamburgers for you
M: Take a breath Aubrey, take a breath.
A: What mom, I am breathing.
A:in the whinest voice EVER BUT I WANT A SHOW
M: But you were not being a good listener.
A: But I want to be a good listener.
M: I know you want to be a good listener, but you were not a good listener.
A: But mom if I want to be a good listener I will be and I will watch a show.
EXACTLY! Maybe I scored ONE point in this evening's activities until...

A: Well, I don't want a show that many (read: MUCH) so I want to be a good listener but I am not a good listener right now.
We went to a make up swim lesson this evening - just Aubrey and I. The little fish did GREAT - until she REFUSED to get out of the pool...
