Beware of Those Stoplights, They are a Tricky Bunch

Mary is hosting Tiny Talk Tuesday today, so be sure to visit her blog for a peek at the funny things our kids say. This week, Jen awarded Mary a You Make Me Smile Award for hosting this blog carnival. I agree! Tiny Talk Tuesday always makes me smile when I get to read about the cute and funny things our kids are saying. Congratulations on your award Mary! And again, thanks for hosting!

This week, I was driving my son to a birthday party and it was just him and I in the car. We were talking and singing along to the radio.
I came to a stop light and I was waiting in the left turn lane, but the arrow changed before I was able to make the left hand turn.
As cars began going in the other decoration, I pulled forward into the middle of the intersection waiting for a break in the traffic so that I could make my left turn.
My son said to me, "Mom, the light is green. GO!"
I explained to him that I couldn't go because of all the other cars.
He proceeded to tell me, "You've got the green light so just GO! IT"S YOUR TURN! GREEN MEANS YOU CAN GO!!!"
Not quite sure how I ever passed my drivers test without him.
I politely told him, "Calm down. Even thought the light is green, I cannot go right now with all of these other cars coming. I have to wait my turn."

So he thought for a minute and said, "Oh. So that green light was just trickin' ya?"

Sure. It was just trickin' me.

K gets totally into the driving as well. That is so funny!

Course, she often yells at the other drivers things like, "come on - GO!" Hmmmmm...must be her dad.
