My kiddo can come up with the goofiest things sometimes. As I was helping him wipe his bottom (he still is not the expert at that) I noticed something strange floating in the toilet. I wondered out loud, “what is that?” (I think it was a chewed up olive) and he matter of factly suggested, “a sea-horse”. How in Sam Hill did he come to the conclusion that he pooped out a sea-horse?
The goofy little guy struck again as he stood at his grandparent’s garbage can that had a foot lever to open and close the lid. He opened and closed it hundreds of times, quietly chanting, “open, close, open…”. Getting a bit tired of his chant, and wondering whether I should be worried about his behavior, or just glad that I have a bit of time when I don’t have to chase him, or clean up after him, I decided to break his chant. “Alright” I said, “for your next birthday you are getting a garbage can”, expecting a negative reaction. Instead, I got a huge, “AWESOME!”. *sigh* I wonder if Target has garbage cans with foot operated lids.
