OH OH OH!  I have a “cute thing kid’s say story”!!!

We were in the store and Zane wanted to go to the toy section.  He kept saying “I want the ocean please”  I was, understandably, confused.  When we got to the toys, he ran up to the pool stuff, next to the toy section, and started hugging this box and repeating, excitedly, that he wanted the ocean.  After trying to get him to say water slide or pool I gave up (he wasn’t listening, just trying to lug the box off the shelf) and just told him ‘no, we aren’t buying the ocean”.  lol.  Even after we moved on, he would occasionally ask for ‘the ocean’ and I kept saying that “no, we aren’t buying the ocean”.  I got some funny looks as people witnessed the “please buy me the ocean” argument.  lol.

Another one…

Earlier today, he kept saying “I want a”…and something that sounded like picnic.  I started working on figuring out what he was saying…is it food?  in your room?  and was receiving answers that weren’t gelling.  I could not figure out what he wanted and finally told him to show me what he wanted.  He took me to his room, and in the middle of the floor was the chocolate syrup, milk, spoon, and straw.  He DID want a picnic.  He wanted a glass so he could have chocolate milk in his room on the floor like a picnic.  Pretty cute.  I also must mention he is pretty fast because that stuff wasn’t there when I went to the bathroom and he caught me on the way out of the bathroom to help him.  lol.

    I wish somebody would buy me the ocean – of course there’s no room for it in our yard but it sure looks cool!

    If you did buy the ocean, I would love to see the shipping charges for shipping it to the middle of the Kansas, LOL! :o)

    How cute!  It always makes so much sense after you figure out what they want.

    Yes, Kansas really needs an ocean… I’ve often thought so.

    And I love the indea of an indoor picnic – fewer bugs, less travel time, nicer bathrooms… what more could one want?
