Today, as we were parking the car at Walmart, Jack said, "I see a monkey in the truck."
This was new. Jack typically limits sight seeing talk to "I see a ..." only to be filled in by "garbage truck, excavator, dump truck, etc."
I said, "Monkeys aren't allowed to be in trucks. Do you think maybe it was a dog?"
Jack said, "Yep." Yep is Jack's new word. I love it.
We were walking towards the doors. Just about as far from a truck as the viewer of this picture, Jack froze. Pointing at a man (who did very much resemble a monkey) behind the wheel, Jack said, "See the monkey?"
My response, "Yes, Jack. I do see the monkey." OK, maybe it wasn't the best parenting moment. But isn't it wonderful and fascinating that in the mind of a 3-year old, a monkey could really be driving a truck.
