Do you remember those commericials that went something like “It’s 10:00 p.m. Do you know where your children are?”
Well, my son is six, so I pretty much ALWAYS know where he is. If I can’t see him I can hear him. Like right now, he is upstairs complaining LOUDLY about something having to do with his LEGOs.
His dad is upstairs in the kitchen making bagels because:
a) he found a recipe
b) they are the easiest thing in the world to buy already made, but nooooo…..
c) he feels a need to dirty more bowls and pots and pans
d) we already ate pancakes and bacon at 7:00 a.m., and
e) he’s tired of playing with LEGOs
But back to my son. Like I said, even if I can’t see the child, I can hear him. He does nothing quietly. He’d make for a terrible cat burglar. He even thinks out loud. So here, for your amusement, are some things my son thinks about on any given day:
How did people go to the bathroom a long time ago when they were locked in the stockades?
What if people didn’t have butts? How would they go to the bathroom? I guess they’d have to poop out of their penis. (I gather this would be painful, but at least the guys would be able to eliminate. Women would be out of luck.)
Where did people go to the bathroom in ancient Egypt?
What did they wear in ancient Egypt since they didn’t have clothes? They only had that little thing that covers their butt and their penis.
I’m going to take a trip to ancient Egypt!
Why can’t you marry your cousin? How will they know if you marry your cousin? Who is going to tell the marrying people that it’s your cousin?
I’m off to grab a bagel and climb back in bed. The kid woke me up way too early to try and come up with answers to his questions.

treasure it!!!! ihave a 19 year old away at colledge a 17 year old ,who like your son use to think out loud, and now im lucky if she says good morning! and one who just turned 13 and its all about her friends. my mom says dont worry they will come back right now they are like little aliens because of the changes they go through. she says just pay attention to what they do right now and not what they say. i see shes right because the one in colledge now calls me every day and im getting back my little six year old in a much more beatiful and understanding way! your little guy sounds like he is really smart by the way!
do all kids think out loud at this age? K does. The only silence in my house is the silence of kid at school.
Hah! Here I thought my six-year-old was special-smart and special-annoying because she’s like that too. (Well, she certainly IS special-annoying.)
Oh noooooo! I have a 5-year-old and you’re telling me it only gets worse??? I think I need a bagel too : P
lol….sounds like he really is interested in butts….huh?
And your husband (1) completely cleaned up after he was done–it was cleaner than when he started!; (2) occupied Snags for a good long time while you slept; and (3) made really good bagels.
Ahh, but can Oedipus’ Dad answer all snags little questions?
Belle, don’t you just love the stuff they think about? LOL.
