As I mentioned, it's been a hot week. It's also been a week where I've been up late taking care of a sick child and trying to squeeze in a few very late night minutes with my husband who is working out of town this week. So during the day I've been pretty tired, pretty useless. I went a little crazy with the Coke to try and stay awake and stay cool, and Nathan spied my line of empty cans on the counter, waiting to be put in the recycle bin.
Nathan: Hey Mom, I think you better switch to Diet Coke!
Me: (preparing to be insulted by my 8 year old) Nathan! Why in the world would you say something like that!
Nathan: Well, have a look... it seems like your entire diet consists of Coke!
Me: (plastering kisses all over his head) You are the funniest boy I know!
