“Mom, I want that thing. I want the thing, Mom. Mommmm, I neeeeed the thing.”
“What thing?” I finally answered the poor insistent boy.
“The thing with the thingies on it!” his face lit up as if that explained it all. I couldn’t help myself. I grabbed him and whirled him around as I laughed.
“Where is it then?” I asked hoping his answer would shed some light on the mystery.
I’m afraid I never figured this one out, but I was able to distract him with my laughter, hugs, and kisses.

🙂 I wonder what it was???
I suppose we will never know what it was now. I have had conversations like that with my son, sometimes they think you are a mind reader.

How sweet! The other day as our family was walking, one of my sons lifted his jacket behind him as if it was a superhero cape. His facial expression showed that he pictured something way more glorious than what he was actually doing. I smiled because I could see what his mind was picturing.
Perhaps it was a UFO. I wrote down some of the funny things I heard kids say when I taught kindergarten through 2nd grade: http://daisybrain.wordpress.com/2009/10/28/funny-things-kids-have-said/
