On Garbage

Getting on 280 for the commute to San Jose today, Jaden says in total non-sequitor mode, "I hope they pick up our garbage today." I reply, "Our pickup day is Thursdays and today is Monday so it won't be today." Jaden says, "Well I really disagree Mama, that is NOT good for our community. We need our garbage to be picked up!"

Thank goodness he is in the backseat sometimes so he doesn't see how amused I get at these things that fly out of his mouth! I know he would say "That really hurts my feelings Mama" because stuff like smiling and the wind and butterflies and wrong flavor of oatmeal can hurt his feelings some days. So he certainly wouldn't understand how being amused by your son is a good thing.
