Rehm and I have spent a lot of time together in the last week with him not feeling well.  I hate he has been sick but have enjoyed many of the conversations we have had.  Today's was especially funny and one I knew I wanted to record for him to read in sometime five to 10 years from now.

We were at the drug store picking up prescriptions.

Rehm: Mom you really are smart! (His reason for saying this had something to do with the way I've taken care of him during his illness.  I don't remember at this point if it had to do with what medicines I'd chosen to give him or something about the visit to the doctor today)

Me:  I'm glad you think so.  I hope in a few years when you don't think your Dad and I are very smart you'll remember this.

Rehm:  Why won't I think you are smart, because you are smart.

Me:  When you are older you will hit a period of time when you think Mom and Dad are old and our ideas are out of date and that we are just not smart.

Rehm: But you are old!

Good thing I was in a good mood because at that point we both laughed ourselves silly.

I really do enjoy spending time with my boy.  I love hearing how his mind works.
