Well, I got quite a few hits with my first post so I've decided to post a second. Here are 2 more interesting conversations entertained by my son :)
-It was the middle of the afternoon and Definitely cloudy outside this day. As we always do, my son and I sat down around noon for some lunch. Being that our dinning room table faces the large Glass doors to the porch, my little one usually enjoys gazing wondrously outside. With a mouth full of Mac N Cheese he asked "Hey. mommy...Where did the sun go?" Answering as simple as I could "Well, the sun is stuck behind the clouds today so we can't see Mr. Sun right now." Just then my kid lit up, jumped straight up in his chair and with a pointing finger above his head he exclaimed "I HAVE AN IDEA!" "Whats you idea?" I asked curiously. "Well" he started, "Go open the door,go outside,stand on the deck and go COCKA-DOODLE-DO!!! and then the sun will come out!" :) I wish it was that simple to fix a cloudy day...don't you? lol
-As a good martial artist always does before class, I was ironing my uniform one evening on the floor. Being that this was my first class getting back into it after 4 years, my son had never seen me in this uniform. He politely watched me as I finished Ironing and stared at me a little perplexed when I put it on. I knew a question was brewing. Sure enough he finally asked "Wow mommy...whats that?" "Its a Karate Uniform for Karate Class today." I said. Satisfied with the answer he ran away to his room but immediately ran back. "MOM! Can I have a karate Unicorn too?" With a smile on my face now and just to confirm what he had asked" What was that little man?" " A karate Unicorn mommy...I want one too!" ;) The things kids say are precious and timeless. I'm thankful I wrote them down.
