Conversations with my boy
With two girls now in school, Jasper and I get to spend a whole lot of time together. He’s an energetic 3 and a half, full of sunshine, chatting, energy, tantrums and craziness. He is teetering on the edge of boyhood with a tiny bit of baby lingering.
He wants to do things himself but he always wants me to carry him (all 17kgs of him) when we are out and about. He loves doing his jobs but also adores making ‘baby talk’ with lots of goo-goo gaa-gaas.
It’s a busy time of bitter-sweet moments.
Yesterday, as we were waiting for the doctor to call us, we had a lovely chat about the baby just up from us who was having a tantrum. Jasper was very interested in it all and thought it was hilarious when I told him that he would have a tantrum in the waiting room at that age every time. Without fail.
And then, he says to me (in a quite obvious segway); “The toof fairy came took Ellie’s tooth.”Me: “Yes, she did.”
Me: “Because she collects teeth.”
Jazzy: “But why?”
Me: “Because… She likes to?”
Jazzy: “But it’s too big. Heavy.”
Me: “You think the teeth are too heavy for the tooth fairy?”
Me: “So, how does she get them home do you think?”
Jazzy: “She magics them down, down, down and then she can.”
Me: “What does she do with them, do you think?”
Jazzy: “Ellection box (collection box like the kids have for their bits and bobs.”
Me: “That’s a good idea.”
Jazzy: “Then in the morning she gets up, paints them. Blue, purple, pink. All the colours.”
I just love his mind.
Have you had any good convos lately?
