Eli: Do I have to finish my cereal?
Me: Yes, sweetheart, it helps you be healthy and strong.
Eli: Can I just finish the milk and be done?
Me: Do you not like your cereal?
Eli: Because it makes me feel like an alien.

So, I've been busier than busy lately and it seems that I am always cramming one more thing into the day than will fit, and frequently forgetting little things as I'm in a rush. So, we were trying to cram in a quick run to the library before Renton got home from school, and I'm hurrying Eli into the car and buckling him and Jory in when Eli asks me, "Any dangits mom?" I had no idea what he was talking about and asked him to repeat himself. When I realized that I had heard him correctly I asked him to clarify and he said, "Dangits. Did you forget anything? You know, Dangits." Then I realized that just about every time we get in the car I say "Dang it!" and hop out to get something that I forgot! Oops! I'm glad there is now a name for my condition, though.
