At least once a day Max will have some sort of short remark, quip, or comment on something I say. Sometimes only to himself.
This morning for example, when I see the recycling truck pass, and realized we forgot recycling was now on Fridays.
Max is just passing through the room to go downstairs.
“Shoot.” I say a little too loud.
Max cheerfully and without missing a beat “He scores!”
“What’s wrong mom?”
“I forgot the to put out the recycling and now it’s too late”
Max looks at me, shakes his head, goes on his way.
