|Where are you, whatcha thinking about, Little Guy?|
Today I discovered I need to be mindful of what I do and say because he may be taking it all in - even when he appears "checked out". In the car this morning G was not his usual lively chatty self, staring out the window instead. I usually try to engage him in conversation, but today I took advantage of this quiet moment to call my husband and leave him a voicemail. I explained a recent charge on a credit card, saying that we'd have to discuss some ideas I had for Christmas gifts this year. I went on with a few other mundane necessities about shuttling kids tonight, asked if he needed anything from the store, etc. and hung up.
A full minute later, G said, "Who were you talking to, Santa?"
|Hello Santa, |
I'd like a full-size real garbage truck
and WM uniform please.
Does he always pay attention when I think he's in another world or did he just perk up when he heard "Christmas gift"? His face held the blank stare the entire time. I habitually look back at him repeatedly while driving...it's a mom thing.
I wonder if he'll expect Santa to pick him up later too? :)
