For Cole, it seems as if he tries to have private thoughts, yet what spills out of his mouth always clues the listener into what he's really thinking.
This morning, a little peeved that I felt it was a winter coat kind of day, he was quiet on the way to school for a while. Then the silence was broken by his statement, "Some moms and dads are a little wrong and some kids are a little right. I said some moms and dads. Not you and dad." Hmmm....really?
Then, also on the way to school, he was yawning and said that he was a little tired...but he's not going to cry about it at school. It was like a little reverse psychology pep talk.
Then later in the day the kids were watching a television show where tweeners were talking about tweeting on twitter. After a while, Will turned to Paige and said, "Why don't they just talk to each other?" Profound.
