Ah, we all know that kids say the darnedest things. Tonight almost 4 year old NHL did just that and I got a good laugh from his child logic.
After nursing JSL I told JL that I had to go to the store to get ice cream cones to make cup cake cones for NHL to take to school for his birthday Friday. NHL decided that he wanted to go with me. So we got shoes on and went to the car.
On the way to the car I asked NHL what he wanted for his birthday from us. I reminded him that he already got the soccer net earlier so he could use it. Here is our conversation:
NHL (Quickly thinking about it and then blurts out): “I want a camera mommy!”
Me: “We can’t get you a camera NHL. Mommy and Daddy already got you a big present, we we’re going to get you something small.”
Without missing a beat I get the following response
NHL: “But Mommy the camera is small!”
So how do you reason with a basically 4 year old little boy that it isn’t the size of the present that matters, but the cost. I didn’t really. He kept repeating the camera idea.
So, he’ll be disappointment Friday, but will be VERY happy next Sunday at his party when Bubbe and Grandpa give him his own digital camera like Daddy.
He is going to be in heaven.
