Sayings of Sylas v25 - Santa

Well it's appropriate that Sylas' 25th "saying" is about the 25th of December! The other day we were talking about Santa Clause:

Daddy: So Sylas do you believe in Santa?
Sylas: Of course!
Daddy: But Sylas we live in an apartment, how does Santa get in without a chimney?
Sylas: He comes down the garbage chute!

So now you know! Merry Christmas everyone!! Hopefully Santa brings you something nice tonight, whether he brings it down your chimney or down your garbage chute!!

Saying of Sylas v24 - Rent cheque

This morning we were getting ready to head out the door for school when I asked Sylas to help with a big responsibility:

Daddy: Sylas, can you please take care of the rent cheque?
Sylas: Ok, sure!
Daddy: The rental office is closed so you will have to put it through the mail slot. You've done that before right?
Sylas: Ya with rocks!!
