More words of wisdom - AJ style

"Phones don't go in cars. Phones are for doctors; they're not for little kids' parents."

"Mars have bocanos (volcanoes). Bocanos are very hot."

While waiting at a downtown bus stop...
AJ: "There's our bus!"
Daddy: "Nope. That one says U.S. Marshalls on it. Definitely NOT our bus."
AJ: "There's our bus!"
Daddy: "Nope. That's a beer truck."
AJ: "I wanna ride the beer truck."
Daddy: "You can't ride the beer truck, son."
AJ: "Why?"

Yes, we have officially entered the dreaded "why" zone! According to the developmental charts, the "why" stage starts at around 4 years old. Leave it to MY kid to find that one to be advanced in....I think it would make me less insane if he believed me when I told him "I don't know". But he argues with me, convinced that I must be holding out on him. If I just make something up, he tells me I'm wrong, and tells me what HIS version is.

I just can't win...

I think it is very important to point out that Mars does, in fact, have volcanos. And Friday was a very hot day, so who wouldn't have wanted to ride in the beer truck?

I'm with AJ. Let's go ride in beer truck.

Part of me must wonder if AJ went off in the beer truck anyway. He spent from Thursday evening to Saturday morning puking everywhere.
The child just CANNOT hold his drink :)
