Bryce had the most hilarious conversation with me in the car today (mainly him chatting and me listening with a big smile on my face). This is one of the many reasons I love this age.
Bryce: "Mommy, ducks are not birds."
Me: "Yes they are, sweetie."
Bryce: "But birds can't swim."
Me: "Some can swim."
Bryce: "Yeah, ducks are birds, and they can swim. I can't go to the deep side of the swimming pool because I will go to the sink of the bottom [said just like that]. But whales can swim and fish can swim and dolphins can swim and sea lions can swim. But lions and tigers and elephants don't swim. And turtles can swim and alligators can swim. Mommy, we have four wheels on our mini. How many wheels does a bus have?"
Me: "I think they have six. We can count them if we see one."
Bryce: "Mommy, how many wheels does uh 18-wheeler have?"
Bryce: "One, two, three, four...(counted all the way to eighteen). Wow, that's a lot of wheels. MOM!! There's a bus!!! Count the wheels!! How many does it have?!?"
Me: "It has six wheels."
Bryce: "Six. That's a lot...but not as many as eighteen. How many wheels does Daddy's truck have?"
Bryce: "Hahaha, no, Mommy. He has more than that. He probably has six, too, like the bus. Mommy, are we going to Payton's house? I want to go to Payton's house. When can we go to Payton's house? Mommy, can I have some Easter M&Ms when we get home? Mommy, can we go to Cherry Slush [Sonic]? I like cherry slushes. Mommy, last night my tummy was hurting, but now it feels better, so can I have some sugar now? Mommy, when is Daddy coming home?"
He kept going, but I will stop there. This reminds me so much of my teaching years. Makes me smile. Their brains (and mouths) are constantly working and are all over the place, and I love it!!!
Disclaimer-I did not give him all he was asking for, however he did get a few M&Ms after finishing his dinner. ;)
