One of Alex's favorite expressions is "I'm getting bored", that and "aww heck". It is amazing how quickly she can get bored.
Last week she went with her preschool class to a gymnastics/tumbling place. They go once and a month and she loves it. One of her teacher's drives her there and then I pick her up from it, it is in the neighboring town but ends up being about a 15 minute drive.
The following conversation occurred on the drive home.
Alex: "I'm getting bored this is taking too long"
Me: "Your class isn't in our city so it takes a little extra time to drive to, but it only takes 15 minutes"
Alex: "No- my class is in California"
Me: "Yes, you are right it is in California. It is in X California and we live in Y California."
Alex (said in a total know it all voice): "There is only California in the whole wide world"
Me: "That's not true. Where were you born?"
Alex: --silence--- "Okay only California and Arizona in the whole wide world"
Me: "What about where MiMi and Papi live?"
Alex: "Okay only California, Arizona, and Utah in the whole wide world"
Me: "What about where Grandma and Grandpa live?"
Alex: "Okay only California, Arizona, Utah and Illinois in the whole wide world and that is it!" she declared with a look of defiance on her face.
So well, if you live anywhere other than California, Arizona, Utah or Illinois-sorry I guess you don't live in this world. Or so says my 4-year-old.
