who are my friends?

I was going to go to bed an hour ago but then decided to get on Facebook really fast because I hadn't been on all day. Bad idea. Note to self: Do NOT get on there when I need/should go to bed.

But I did have to get on there to send my brother a sarcastic comment about OSU winning their bowl game last night. He's pretty bitter about that. (Love you, bud!)

Then I was thinking about a status update, not that those are necessary but always fun to read through the ones that people I love write. But everything I was going to say had to do with Seth. And then I couldn't pick just one thing, so I thought that I should blog. And now bedtime is being even further delayed.

Things Seth has said in the last couple days that make me laugh/smile/want to pause this time forever:

[School started back up yesterday, so Kevin is no longer home and Seth didn't realize that's why he wasn't home until later in the morning.]
Seth: "He leave me?!"
Me: "No, he didn't leave you. He just had to go back to school because break is over."
Seth: "I love him...And after my nap, then he will come home? I will tell him that I love him."
[Hours later Kevin comes home.]
Me: "Seth, did you tell Dad what you wanted to tell him?"
Seth, yelling: "I love you, Dad."
Me: "He's upstairs changing his clothes and can't here you, buddy."
[Seth runs upstairs. Kevin returns laughing.]
Me: "Did Seth tell you what he wanted to tell you?"
Kevin: "That he loves me? Yah. 'I love you, Dad, but not when you leave me.'"

[Tonight during prayer time at bed.]
Me: "...And thank you, Jesus, for our family, our friends, and our supporters."
Seth: "Thank you, Jesus, for our family, our friends...Wait, Mom, who are MY friends?"
Me: "Is Ethan your friend?"
Seth: "Yes! Ethan is my friend."
Me: "Is Kate your friend?"
Seth: "No, Kate's not my friend. She lives in my house."
Me: "Is Quentin your friend?"
Seth: "Yes! Quentin is my friend. He lives in his house."

Apparently you can't be friends with people who live in the same house as you. ;) A few other names were mentioned as well, but I won't bore you with the rest of that.

And 11 minutes later, I am now headed to bed. Jó éjszakát! Goodnight!

*laughs* GOSH, this was adorable. Especially the end part. ^__~ I might have to re-evaluate my friendship list. ;)

Anyway, I'm just passing by to kind of leave a 'spam like' comment. I'm sorry! :x

The point is me and my friends are starting a book review collaboration - here at GoldenFlamingos - we'd absolutely love to have more followers and perhaps some constructive criticism.

You don't have to check it out, but we'd love more people sharing books they love and opinions. Up till now we'd only posted YA reviews, but we're open to recommendations.
