A week ago...
Me: "So, what are you asking Santa for this year?"
Isaiah: "Well, what I really want is a whole box of Transformers."
Me: "but you already have a whole box of Transformers (translation: we don't need anymore Transformers)."
Isaiah: "Wellllll...this will be special because I'm asking Santa for a whole box collection of all the Transformers that I don't already have so that I'll have a whole set of Transformers...they've gotta be in ONE box (I have no idea what the importance of being in ONE box is, but he emphasized it a few times. great.)."
Me: "I'm not sure if there is such a thing. Maybe Santa could just bring you a few of the Transformers that you don't already have and then you can ask for the rest of them on your birthday?"
Isaiah: "Mom, Santa can make anything. He's a toy genius."
Me: (great) "Sometimes Santa can't make ANYTHING...he's a busy guy you know."
Isaiah: "Mom, it's just some little 'ol Transformers...I think Santa and his elves (oh, now he's bringing out the elves. great.) can handle making a collection of all the Transformers that I don't have in ONE box."
Me: "I'll give Santa a call and see what he says."
Isaiah: "YOU know Santa's number?"
Me: "Sure, it's on speed dial."
A few days ago...
Me: "Hey, Buddy...we should get to writing that letter for Santa. We want him to have enough time to make all of the things (a whole collection of Transformers all in ONE box) you want in his workshop!"
Isaiah: (nonchalantly) "sure, mom."
Me: "We wouldn't want Santa to run out of time!"
Isaiah: "Mom, you're the one that said that Santa knows stuff, like when I'm good and bad and stuff like that...so, that must mean that he knows other stuff, like what I want for Christmas. *he thinks for a moment* You know, Mom...Santa's like Jesus."
Great. Now he thinks Santa is like Jesus...I'm not sure that's the direction I was hoping for.
Me: "How was school today, Buddy?"
Isaiah: "Great, but I got in one time out."
*I give him "the" look*
Isaiah: "it was just a *little* time out...see, I was shaking a tree on the playground and I didn't know it was against the rules to shake a tree...DID you know it was against the rules to shake a tree??...because I didn't know it was against the rules to shake a tree!"
Me: *trying to keep my composure and reflect the seriousness of this tree shaking incident* "No, I didn't know it was against the rules to shake a tree...BUT we know now and we should follow all the rules...including no shaking trees."
I love this boy!♥
Hope you all have a great Wednesday!! *loves*
