They are running a free spa at school, I booked a massage for tomorrow. They just take invisible money. They aren't that professional though, because they don't really keep track of who has an appointment and when. And they shouldn't really call it a spa, because they don't have like cucumbers and lotion and stuff.
M: It's too bad life is so short.
Me: What made you say that?
M: I don't know, it just is.
Me: Most 8-year-olds are not thinking that.
M: (laughs) Yeah, I know. Well at least you are in a good place. I wonder what heaven is really like. Is it like souls floating around or just like life only really different?
About national testing at school:
"I mean they are talking like it's all fun and games. It's serious. It is nationwide, the information goes to the government and it represents OUR school and OUR 2nd grade and OUR class. They need to stop acting like it's not serious, they could get themselves fired! What if we do horrible and they think they aren't teaching us??"

M: I remember I used to be so sad on the way home from school everyday because I was thinking about what everyone else had. Like they would say, I have an Xbox 360 and I do this...I just wanted to have what they did. To be equally matched.
Me: Do you still feel that way?
M: No, I don't really care. I just want to live up to my own legacy.

Remember when I thought three was pronounced "free?" I was so convinced it was free that in kindergarten I said to Ixx, "I just ate free taquitos." And he said, "What are free taquitos?" And I said, "Free!" (holding up three fingers). And he said you mean three. And I said no free! ...

M: Ixx is the friend you want. You can give him any topic and he has something exciting to say about it.
Me: Do you remember when you guys did not get along?
M: Yeah! We laugh about this all the time. I was best friends with T and everything he did, I did. And Ixx wanted to be close to T too. I would see Ixx with T and it felt like my spine went on fire. I was soo mad.

About a note I put in his lunchbox on his first day of a new camp (which turned out to be a bad day):
Mom, quit telling me I'm special, I'm not little anymore it doesn't work. You're just saying that because you are my mom. I have been realizing for a while that it's not true, but I just wanted to let you have your fun.
