The First Eye Roll

Yesterday, as I was helping my oldest find pajamas, I mentioned how we needed to clean up there this weekend. He said something along the lines of "I don't like cleaning." I said "Yes, neither do I but I also don't like messes." And he rolled his eyes. It was a good one too. I'd never had a kid roll their eyes at me before and the attitude that sometimes accompanies such gestures wasn't present, so I laughed. Then he laughed. I asked "Did you just roll your eyes at me?" And he said "DID I? I didn't know I could!"

According to some facebook friends this event could have occurred much sooner if I had girls.

I still can't quit laughing about it, primarily the fact that this is a skill that he seems to have been practicing.

Came over from Laundry for Six.

Oh, yes, I have 3 boys..but I've heard the first eye roll begins with girls at like 4K.
No kidding...

Nice to meet you!

OMG, my girls started the eyeroll at around 18 months. But I must confess, it's genetic. I am the CHAMPION EYE ROLLER.

Nice to meet you too Empress! And Sue as I wrote this post the phrase "detached retina" kept entering my head. Pretty sure that came from you ;)
