Funny and fond life space moments tonight:
- S tried to flush the toilet a second time while it was still cycling and I told him that doesn’t work, to which he replied with certainty: “It needs batteries.”
- S has a baby picture book from Grandma Beth that I have him read to me by identifying what he sees in the pictures. Of all the books he can choose from, he’s always gravitated toward this and one other book from his great-grandmother that I have read to him most nights at bedtime from the time he was a newborn. Tonight he pointed to the baby boy in a stroller and labeled them: “I see little boy. I see stroller…..[Puzzled, he pointed to the blank space above the stroller and looked up at me with a scrunched face.] Where’s da mommy? Where’d da mommy go? She went bye-bye?” Apparently he just assumed all strollers have mommies pushing them! Priceless.
- It’s kind of funny if I sit back and think about how often that orange Disney fish goes missing in our house. It’s like we are always finding Nemo. But I don’t mind one bit because it makes me chuckle to myself each time I think about it, and then I remember these days of finding Nemo are numbered so I hurry up and find the fish to get back to my own little boy.
