Overheard in Passing

"Let's go down and hug Baby Nigel and then go back upstairs!" "If you take your brain out, you're dead." "I will come to here tomorrow so my mummy can be Spiderman."

Is it just me, or does Baby Nigel seem to provide hours and hours of fun for everyone?

And how did the hugging go?

The things preschoolers say! I love how every other comment they make has to do with Baby Nigel, how does he feel about being the center of their attentions?

And yay for the mommy who's Spiderman, sounds like one great mom!

I'm curious...Were these all part of the same conversation? You can't automatically rule that out with 2-3 year olds. Consistant topics are not required for conversation at that age.

hey Mary....
off of your subject here, but I finally took your advice and turned off my anonymous postings.
Those people were really getting on my last nerve.
Thanks for the advice.

It's so prudent of you to only use first names so that Spiderman's identity is still protected. ;)

Were these part of one conversation? It wouldn't surprise me. My daughter came up to me this morning and said,
"Here Mommy, here is a Pla-Dough cookie for you. It's for you cuz it's delicious. And you need to shave."

Susan: He does, indeed. The hugging went all right, though Baby Nigel was mostly just bemused by it. The two older boys were well pleased with it, though, so it was satisfactory.

Angela: Nigel takes it utterly for granted: He is the centre of the universe, after all. Isn't he??

Jen: No, I never did get to the bottom of that. The boy just looked at me blankly when I asked, and his mother had No Idea what he might've meant. I run across dozens of such mysteries in my day.

Haley: Heehee... In fact they weren't, but you're quite right: they could have been!!

Jeff: Good for you. It was getting entirely out of hand.

MsS: Did the "shooing" work? If it did, do you think she could come here and shoo some of ours? I'm mortally tired of them. (Diarrhoea worm. :-) )

Lory: Bet you were surprised to discover that Superman is a mommy!!

Hausfrau: The stream-of-consciousness conversation. Always a mind-boggling thing. Did you eat your delicious cookie? And did you go shave?
