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.
