The following conversation took place between myself and my five-year-old this morning. I love the reasoning that children have for things. 🙂
Me: “Why are there knots in the shoestrings on my boots?”
Robert: “Because I was trying to wear them to play.”
Me: “What are you playing?”
Me: “Okay. Why do vampires need to wear boots?”
Robert: “Because they’re black and vampires like dark. And I’m going to play in the snow with the other vampires.”
After I untangled the shoestrings on my boots, I laced them up for Robert and he put on a pair of gloves to enjoy snowball fights with his imaginary vampire friends. Yep, he’s my son alright.
