The clocks went back early this morning so when Alex ran into my room at 9:20 this morning I said "Alex, it's only 8:20 am now. See?"
"Oh!" he said "So what should I do?"
"Do you want to climb back into bed with me? Daddy is gone to hockey."
"Sure!" he said. And he jumped right in under the covers. We were silent for a bit. I think I fell back asleep.
Until he said "Mommy?"
"Um hum..." I mubled.
"If our world, like dis world we live in now, was actually Candyland, what could we do with the lollipops?"
"We could use them as trees!" I said (drawing on my Candyland expereince of ... just last week).
"Yes! That's awesome! Or, or, or we could use them as light fixtures, like that one that hangs over there!"
"That's a great idea, bud!" I told him. "Or, we could use them as brooms to sweep up all the pixie stick dust. Or, as spoons. Or shovels for snow!"
"Oh Mommy," he said in awe. "You are so smart. My God, you're the best!"
This is why Moms are awesome. We came up with such quick answers to the weirdest, but most adorable Sunday morning questions.
