Me: So you turn five in three days! What do you want for your birthday?
Corbin: Hmm, I donno.
Me: Is there a special toy or book that you've been wanting? Or maybe a special shirt?
Corbin: Hmm, what about a mask!?
Me: A spiderman mask?
Corbin: How'd you know!?
I just laughed, so he kept talking, "Oh right, it's because we're connected! You know what's in my brain."
A couple of weeks ago, we were going from our car to the house and Corbin took his shoes and socks off during the car ride. Since his socks were filthy (little boys, I tell you), my mom told him to just put his shoes on until we got into the house. To this, he answered all matter of factually "actually, wearing shoes without socks is a fashion no-no".
Corbin: Can I use the red crayon?
Me: Of course! You can use all of them now because I'm finished.
Corbin: That's kinda weird.
Corbin: Cause, sometimes things just get weird.
As we were going through security in the airport we asked Corbin if he was excited for his first plane ride, to which he responded, "well yeah, but if we go on the airplane, will we lose our home?"
I love this kid. More than he'll ever know. And I really need to make a point of getting his adorable self on video, because he's basically the cutest thing ever.
