Four Year Old Thinking is Awesome
Alex: "Mom, I went all the way across!"
Me: "Yep, only you can do that because you are so small."
Alex: "Only 4 year olds can do that."
Me: "So do you like being 4?" (Last night he told me he wanted to be a grown-up. So he could go to work
Alex: "Yes I like being 4. But I would like being 1000." (1000 is his favorite number lately.)
Me: "Oh honey, nobody is 1000. Nobody lives to be 1000."
Alex: "Yes huh! Yes they do! Isn't Great-grandmom and Great-granddad almost 1000?"
