More Thomas-isms

Batman Thomas Playing Under BlanketOur 3-year old grandson Thomas has a cold. After we played, it was time for his nap and for me to get back to work.

Thomas gets especially creative at nap time. His excuses can be a little unusual. I just heard him yell to My Beloved from his bed:

“Mama! My lips are dry! I need chopsticks!”

That was immediately followed by, “My superheroes will fight my cold out!”

I wouldn’t be surprised if the next thing we hear is, “My superheroes need chopsticks for their dry lips!”

With Love,

      LOL! I can relate. All three of my children know much more about computers than I do and are delighted to frequently remind me of that fact. The good news is that now two of them have kids of their own and now it’s only a matter of time before their kids do the same thing to them! I look to forward to it!

      PS I’m very happy your son was there to help you get your computer working properly again!

  5. It sounds like Thomas has a wonderful imagination and a way with words – like his Grandfather!
