The world through the eyes of a toddler.
I went into his room to get him up from a nap, and he sits up and, eyes closed, drowsily whimpers:
“My eyes are stuck shut. I can’t see everything, and you.”
We went for a walk to the pond:
C-note:“Look, it’s all sparkly. What’s that are those?” Me: “That’s the sun reflecting onto the water.” C-note: “Oh, the pond is a mirror for the sun!”
We went outside one day and one of the freight trucks was, well...just a trailer:
“The truck doesn’t have a face! Where did it go?”
At lunchtime, eating a sandwich:
“I don’t like the crunch.” Me: “Why not? That’s the best part.” Him: “Oh! Can I eat the crunch? Yum, yum.”
Driving in the truck, someone pulls right in front of me:
Me: "Aaaaargh!" C-note: "What's wrong, Mommy?" Me: "Oh, someone cut me off, and it made me angry." Him: "Oh, that truck cut Mommy off? He's a bad guy."
"When I get bigger and bigger and bigger I have my own tractor and go in the field and cut the grass!"
"Can I have some of this handcream?" Me: "Why, are your hands dry?" Him: "Yeah, my hands have to be wet."
After Stu said "Guess what?" I responded with "What?" C-note says:
“Don’t say what, Mommy, say pardon.”
