I've been trying to do a little more cooking these days, and apparently Connor has noticed.
Ed put a new battery into the smoke detector and it beeped. Upon hearing the beep, Connor looked up at Ed and asked "Is Mommy cooking something?".
I'm only sorry Ed didn't fall off the stool he was standing on to replace the battery when he laughed.
Oh...and the reason Ed was replacing the battery? A few nights before I was roasting vegetables and set off the smoke detector. Not to fear, it didn't wake Connor - my child who can allegedly hear. I was not so lucky with Helen.
