Common Sense isn't so hard to come by


Ty was in the bathtub tonight and we'd just finished singing a medley of childrens songs when he asked me a question.

I paused before giving him the answer and tried to help him reason it out.

I could tell with his first answer that he wasn't too into the thinking for himself idea tonight so I gently told him, "It's easy, just use your common sense, sugar."

"I don't got no common sense."

"You don't?"

"Nope. And do you know why I don't, Mama?"

"No, I don't. Why?"

"Cause somebody took it."

"They did?!"

(matter of factly) "Yes. Can I borrow some of yours?"

"
Well, I don't see why not."

"Is your sense pink, Mama?"
"I don't know. It might be."

"I don't use pink sense. I use blue sense."
"Oh"
(he turns around in the bathtub, facing away from where I am.)

"Nevermind, Mama. Here's some in the bathtub!"

(he picks up his imaginary sense and pretends to eat it.)
I love the imagination of a child and I love how they can take one word out of your vocabulary and spin their little stories around it.

Too precious.
