So, my boy and I are laying here on the couch while he has a snack.
I leave this blog post in the hands of my three year old. Because I am lazy. And Parker may as well contribute to things around here.
Me: Parker, what should I write about?
Parker: Uhhh, Hawthorne. (our new cat)
Me: What about Hawthorne? What does he like to do?
Parker: Kill birds. And play with a mouse.
Me: Do you think Hawthorne and Dobby (our old cat) will become friends?
Me: If they were friends what would they do?
Parker: Both of them play with a mouse.
Me: What does Hawthorne do while we're gone during the day?
Parker: (Long pause, long stare) I don't know!
Me: What do you think he does?
Parker: He plays with a mouse while we're gone.
Me: What do you like about Hawthorne?
Parker: That he plays with a mouse!
Me: Does the mouse ever die?
Me: Does Hawthorne want him to die?
Parker: (Silence, ignoring, finished with the conversation, and only watching Wonder Pets.)
Well, now that everyone has been thoroughly entertained by riveting preschooler conversation, my work here is done. I will continue to lay here if I can.
When you are tired, at the end of a long day, how do you like to unwind? Pray tell, are your preschooler conversations as riveting as ours?
