Sundays Are For Sebastian #103

Sebastian is my six-year old and he says some of the funniest things–we have no idea where he gets his material since his mother and I are rather boring, serious people.

Sebastian came down the stairs crying as I was watching the game.

He sat on my lap, looking for some sympathy. Thank goodness for DVR or I would have kicked him to the curb.

Me: “What’s the matter?”

Seba: “I hurt my toe and Nathan stopped playing with me. He said I was ‘over-reacting’.”

Me: “Well what happened?”

Seba: “I hit my toe hard and it really hurt, so I started to cry.”

Me: “So were you over-reacting?”

Seba: “NO!”

I rubbed his foot for a while, until he was ready to go upstairs again. On his way upstairs, I called after him.

Me: “Sebastian, do you know what ‘over-reacting’ means?”


Seba (somewhat sheepishly): “no.”







About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

    been away on a trip, missed following my favorite blogs, glad to see Sebastian is in top shape, no matter how bad he hit his toe.

    (loved the comment about the DVR and kicking him to the curb, made me almost spill my cappuccino)


  2. Aww poor Seba. He didn’t know what over-reacting was but he just knew he wasn’t doing it!

    Though he doesn’t know what exactly it means, at least he is sure that he wasn’t over-reacting, So what’s the big problem? 😛
