Only my first day to blog, and I am writing another post. . .my clever son necessitated it. As he slammed $5.99 worth of Lego board on top of his Lego creation in order to crack the creation and see what happened to the board I said, “Boy, don’t do that. That board was expensive.” To which his 4 1/2 year old brain asked aloud, “Did you buy the Lego board or did Santa?”
You see, Santa brought a HUGE box of Legos and two 10″ square Lego boards on which Thad and his sister may place their constructions. So Thad is thinkin’ a little more quickly on his feet than am I. It took me a moment to respond–to even believe that he could have come up with a zinger question like that so quickly. So I said, “What?”
He repeated his question. . .
“Did YOU buy the Lego board or did Santa?”
“Well, Santa brought it, but if I have to go and buy another one because you broke this one, it will cost a lot of money.”
He was satisfied. And then he said,
“Did you know Santa is nocturnal. . .because he comes out at night.”
How will I ever keep up with this boy?
