My kid regularly makes observations, comments, and statements that are amazing. All kids do, but I am usually not around to hear those gems fall from the mouths of babes. All I can do is try to remember to capture as many of these words as I can.
Like the day Zane came running into our bedroom, jumped into bed with us, and told us we were a "happily family".
Or the day I spoke with Zane about a call I got from his school.
"I heard you fell out of your chair today during school. What happened?"
"I was writing about a cowboy," he told me excitedly.
"Really?" I was happy to not see any signs of bruising or swelling, but curious.
"Yeah, and it was really excellent!"
And my current favorite:
"If you have a cane, that means you're gonna die." Zane was in the backseat of the car.
"Uh, where did you learn that, kid?"
"I read it in a book."
Larry and I looked at each other.
The boy never missed a beat.
"An invisible book. With real words."
Is it any wonder that parents love their kids, with that kind of conversation?
