Spring Is Falling
A few days ago, I was taking my little guy to school. It was a bit crisp and it felt like fall was in the air. He breathes in and pauses for a second at the door.
He: Spring is falling.
— pause — (I smile)
He: Get it? Spring is falling? Because fall is coming.
Me: Yes I do. That was very funny.
He: Then why aren’t you laughing?
Me: I’m smiling. I thought that was a great joke.
He: It’s not a joke. It’s just a fun thing to say.
Me: Oh. Okay. Well, it was clever.
Ahhh…the funny things kids say.
