I knew the day would come when he'd want to walk around with earphones in all the time – talking in a too loud voice over his own personal soundtrack.
I didn't know he'd be six.
This boy LIVES for Legos, "contraptions" and music. He hears songs on the radio and BEGS me to download them for him. He brings out his piggy bank and chases me around with $.99 until I consent.
I also knew at some point that I'd get questions like, "Can I color my hair black?" and "Also, could I paint my room black?"
Let me repeat, he's SIX!
When I asked him why he likes black so much he said, "Cuz it's 'dude-y' and I"m a dude." Thankfully, his version of "dude" is more space ranger/ robot creator and less goth than his color selections might imply.
I don't know where he gets this stuff.
He, and his iPod, filled about a million little cups with soil yesterday, and one by one, we planted our fall seeds. Broccoli, Zucchini, Yellow Squash, and various herbs.
He was listening to "Goats on Film" which really is "Girls on Film."
It took me a while to figure that one out.
When I did, and told him what they are really saying, he said, "Well, I'm gonna keep singing it my way, cuz I like goats better anyway."
Well hallelujah for that! He's still a little boy after all 🙂
