She replied, "Yeah. Your kids say things other kids don't say."
I guess I already knew this a little bit. I like words, I like learning new words and I like using the words I've learned. Certainly this has rubbed off on my kids. However, I blame my mother. I mean seriously, I never knew any of my friends' moms to say, "It would behoove you to clean your room today." Haha.
Since it's been pointed out that my family talks "funny", I've noticed it a bit more this week. I admit it probably does sound a little odd to those who don't really know our dynamics. Just today LittleDuckling asked if he could go to his dad's house. I said yes, as long as FunnyMan could drive him, since I was busy. He then asked if FunnyMan was going to just drop him off or if he was planning to stay at his dad's too. I said, "I don't know... why?"
He replied, "It's a dependent variable." Haha.
I understood perfectly what he meant. That was his way of telling me he wanted alone time -- away from his siblings. If FunnyMan was going to drop him off that was one thing. But if he was going to stay and hang out, that was something else entirely.
I guess we do talk "funny".
