In the car today:
Austin: "Hey mom, you know the light pole at (our next-door-neighbor) Logan's house?"
Austin: "Well, your tongue doesn't stick when you put it on it."
Me: "How do you know?"
Austin: "Because I tried it yesterday."
Me, freaking out because it was WAY below freezing: "Austin, you know that's not a good idea..... Just because people do things in the movies doesn't mean you won't get hurt if you do it..." etc., etc., blah, blah, blah....
Austin, without missing a beat: "Mom when you get old enough to get a job, do you know what you're going to do?"
Me, not really sure which direction this conversation is going to go: "Um, I don't know."
Austin: "Well, I really want you to be the driver on The Polar Express."
Me, relieved: "I'll see what I can do. When I get old enough, that is."
