I wish that I could get into the head of my children!
It seems to be WAY more fun in there, than in the “real” world and sometimes you can just tell when you look at them that they are off in their own world probably having a great time.
Sometime I forget that children possess a combination of curiosity, and I-don’t-care in the way they look at life and when you take into account their naivety, and their innocence, its no wonder they want to be in their own little world.
But to hear what they are thinking about can come at an unexpected time and can often be refreshing and hilarious, take for example the comment blurted out in the car by my son Stewie;
“By the time I am ready to buy a car there won’t be any good license plates left…”
Yes, that might be the case, my wife and I struck with silence and as processed this odd comment, and of course, he was not finished, so he completed his thought with this;
“I’ll get stuck with a sucky license plate like Poop-so.”
So not only was he concerned that all of the good license plates will have been taken in, what, 10-15 years when he will have his own car, but he has actually given thought to what that license plate he will be stuck with, will say.
Well, son, Poop-so is a pretty cool license plate.
