Derek: I don't think you want to do that.
Ethan: Do what, dad? Daddaddaddaddaddad?
Kristen: Ethan, did we tell you what we are going to do this weekend?
Ethan: What, Mom? Whatwhatwhatwhat?
Kristen: Would you like to meet Sid the Science Kid, Ethan?
Ethan: (looking at me like I had maybe one too many that morning) MOM. Sid is on the TV!!!!!!!! You can't meet him. He isn't real.
Does this mean that Santa Clause will be out this year too because frankly, I am thinking that the tender of age of three is a little young to be on the reality page with Saint Nick.
Kristen: I KNOW he is on t.v. but he is also going to be at the National Book Festival this weekend.
Ethan: Mom, he can't be on the t.v. AND at that book thing.
Kristen: He is. I promise. And so is Clifford and there is a rumor about Super Why.
Ethan: Mom.mom.mom.mom. Can we go today? When is it? When is Saturday? Is it Saturday now? Why can't it be Saturday?
My husband had no mercy for me. I knew better than to tell The Boy less than 2 minutes before it was actually happening. But NO. I was too excited myself. The kid will NOT stop talking about it. If you are in D.C. and around this Saturday, September 27, you should totally come too! The National Book Festival is from 10-5 and PBS Kids has its own tent. How cool is that? I don't think Clifford will be to scale because that would be the size of the Lincoln Memorial, right? Susan Meddaugh, author of the Martha Speaks series and inspiration for the newly launched PBS Kids show Martha Speaks will be reading throughout the day. You should come.
