Wisdom of the Age

We have a sage in our house. He is 5.5 years old and would like spiderman on his 6 year birthday cake. A thing that he reminds me every week or so just to make sure I don’t forget. 😉 Can you guess who this person might be? It’s…


He certainly thinks that he has a good grasp on the reality of most situations and doesn’t mind enlightening any of the rest of us should we need it. 😉 Since starting Kindergarten Qade has been learning SO many things. He helps his brother and sister count to 20 when they play “hide and scare” with Daddy. He can sound out lots of words, and is doing simple math problems too. However, he still isn’t always convinced that school is the best use of his time. Recently he has been much better, but previously he would tell me every day how much he didn’t like school.

During one of his soliloqies on the not likableness of school, Myles, who was working on his own “school” piped up that he did like school. Qade trotted over, glanced at the page Myles was working on, and said wisely, “When you get in Kindergarten, you won’t like school.” And that was that.

Ella, as you may recall from a recent post, likes to be the boss of most situations. One day while they were at lunch talking amongst themselves (I love to eavesdrop on those conversations!) Myles said to Qade, “Ella thinks she knows everything.” Qade looked over at his little sister and said, “Ella, you don’t know everything… yet.” Ha ha ha ha!! Glad he added that little clarifier. 😉

Another time, he told me, “Ella already thinks she’s four!” Poor Qade as the eldest child really has issues with a younger sibling trying to be tops. Guess I can understand that. 😉
