Lion is Crying. He misses Nana.

My son’s imagination is fantastic. It’s amazing how he has taken what he sees on TV and brings it into his play.

Caillou, Rosie and Sarah, Dora and Diego have all eaten dinner at our house, gone on car rides, had their bums changed and cried and been comforted by my guy.

Right now, E is finds it hysterical when I discipline Lion who apparently bites a lot. Lion has had timeouts and has been banished from whatever room we are playing in.

Lion often feels so badly he got in trouble that he cries.

Last night while in the bath, my guy said Lion was crying. When I asked why, he told me Lion misses Nana. So after explaining to Lion we would see Nana on Sunday and that was five days away, Lion stopped crying and started biting.

When asked, E said he, too, missed Nana.

Other cute kid speak:

‘But I have to’ when you say no to chocolate cake for dinner; to adding more soap to the sink; to opening and pouring water everywhere.
‘Say yes to me, Mommy.’
‘Don’t pull me.’
‘A little bit more’ complete with finger to face showing me just a little bit more.
‘Just one, Caillou. Just one,’ which leads to maybe one more and then another.
‘Cosmo didn’t attack me. Just a little bit.’
‘I took Cosmo’s toys’ with hysterical laughing. Poor Cosmo.
No wonder he attacked. Just a little bit.

Very sweet. I love seeing my son's imagination in action too. His latest is, "mummy, can you please make the clocks go forward so that it can be Easter NOW?"

Your little guy is So cute! My kiddos say the cute things too, but I love how he includes all of these characters in his own life. Gotta love kids, especially before the get attitude!
