The highs and lows of parenting and real estate.


Yep, that’s right, today is Gray’s second birthday! Yesterday, I tried to teach him to respond to ‘How old are you?’ I spent half an hour asking him and then bribing him with cheese and M&Ms trying to get him to say “Two!” on cue. This is how it went about 10 times in a row:

Me: Gray, how old are you?
Gray: Um, bebo uda la la?
Ben: You’re 20! Get it, cause 2 times 10 is 20! And I’m almost 60, but I’m still only 50 until July 8…
Gray: Tenty!
Me: No sweetheart, you’re two!
Ben: He’s not two yet, he’s still only one until tomorrow because tomorrow’s his birthday and today he’s still one…
Gray: One!
Me: Ben, walk away, walk away right now, unless you actually want my head to explode…

Until finally I gave up and let them go play for awhile. Later I said to Gray, “What is tomorrow?” He looked at me like this:


And said, “Two!” Technically, I was looking for ‘Birfday’, but hey, I’ll take what I can get!

Happy Birthday, Grayber!
