The water’s running, dirty socks are flying in my bathroom…my little boy, who’s not so little anymore has had one more milestone in his life (granted, I may have postponed this one due to many dumb things!) he dries off and puts on his pajamas all by himself after his evening bath. This event made me realize how soon I will be banned from this part of his day so I decided to keep track of this conversations which seem to be of extreme importance to him and have now acquired a new-found importance for me as well…
I have always done my most productive thinking in the bath or whenever I’m in contact with water, apparently it also happens to my son… although, he thinks out loud and I’m there to follow along…
B: Mom we need to get a hybrid car…
B: Whats a hybrid car? Do they pollute? Does your car pollute?
B: We need to buy a hybrid car?
B: Whats a hybrid car? Is it electrical?
M: It’s a car that runs on gas and electricity too
B: Ooohh, you car runs on gas only, right?
B: Does your car pollute?
M: No because I keep it fine tuned
B: Does my grandmother’s car pollute
M: No, she keeps it tuned also
B: When I grow up I’ll have a hybrid car
B: Imagine a gas car and an electric car get married, their children will be hybrid cars
B: Dad’s the gas car and you are the electric, my sister and I are hybrid cars… I want to be a red hybrid car…what color does my sister like? maybe she’d like to be a mint hybrid car…
B: Mom, can you go get my legos from downstairs?
M: Yes, hurry up and dry yourself, I’ll be right back
THINKING OUT LOUD… I’m just here to keep him company most of the times 🙂
