Like a Scranton party, he don’t stop

Yes, it’s time for another installment of Reidisms.  Both were while in the grocery store on separate occasions.

He stops cold in his tracks, takes a quick pan of the general area and says in a low voice, “All these people are space pirates and I don’t trust them.”

He was being obnoxious, jumping around doing superhero-ish moves and kept getting in the way of other shoppers.  So I gave him a stern “Settle down!”  To which he replied, “Mom, you are wasting all my fun.”

On another note, he can recite the entire opening sequence to Voltron, and does it often:

“From days of long ago, from uncharted regions of the universe, comes a legend. The legend of Voltron: Defender of the Universe. A mighty robot, loved by good, feared by evil. As Voltron’s legend grew, peace settled across the galaxy. On Planet Earth, a Galaxy Alliance was formed. Together with the good planets of the Solar System, they maintained peace throughout the universe until a new horrible menace threatened the galaxy. Voltron was needed once more. This is the story of the superforce of space explorers. Specially trained and sent by the alliance to bring back, Voltron: Defender of the Universe.”

We had parent-teacher conferences a couple days ago, and of course Emma got her usual glowing report from all her teachers.  Even the principal came up to me & said how much he enjoys her and that she always puts a smile on his face (Geez, what a brown noser!  The PRINCIPAL?!).  She amazes me with how awesome she does in school, but I was the same, so am going to take some genetic credit for that. 😉  I just wish she could share a bit of the good behavior & motivation love here at home.  Oh and her math teacher is kind of hot and loves baseball, so I enjoyed that conference especially. 😀

It was our first conference for Reid, and we weren’t surprised that his teacher adores him.  She said that Reid is one of the most charming kids she has ever taught and that he totally cracks her up.  I told her at open house she would fall in love with him, and she remembered that & said she absolutely did.  He’s doing really well for the most part, needs to work on being distracted by shiny things, but is right on pace with where he should be.  So no worries that my kid is going to fail coloring & ABC’s.

You may be hearing me bitch & moan about recovering from oral surgery (3 wisdom teeth desperately need to be pulled), so stay tuned!  You won’t want to miss that!  May be a good way to lose some more weight, though.
