Overheard at Breakfast

My husband and Simon were having a conversation this morning. I was listening. Guess what I learned?

Simon has monster friends. Here are their names:

Giant Tarantula
Blue Power Ranger
Really Strong Light
Door That Whacks You
TV That Stings You
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
First of all, I don't think that the Blue Power Ranger would enjoy being characterized as a monster. Sure, he wears a mask, but he's a crime fighter, and thusly wears the requisite uniform!

Secondly, TV that stings you? Surreal. Creepy. I give it a 9 on the unintentional irony scale.

Door that whacks you? Understandable. Especially when you're 4. That one's a mutha.

But I gotta say... Really Strong Light?

BEWARE the *Really* *Strong* *LIGHT*!!!

I wonder what happened to him to engender the Really Strong Light monster. And then what happened that allowed him to befriend it. In his MIND.

Heh. I love my small boy.

OH MY GOD I can't stop laughing about TV that stings you! 4 is just the best age. Your kids are really well adjusted to be able to do that kind of reconciliation. Too cool.

Maybe he's talking about getting static shocks from the TV? That's happened to me before, and the kid's on to something.

As for the Really Strong Light...I feel that way about lights first thing in the morning.

Smart kid!!

my favorite monster is "door that whacks you."

my boy had an imaginary big brother named "porcupine" -- can you imagine giving birth to a porcupine?!
