The Joy of Silliness!
The Setting: My Toyota Camry
Me the mom
Noah the boy
Noah, speaking for Scooby the dog
We are on the way back to school from Noah's 10 year old checkup with the doctor
Me: Noah I am so thankful you are healthy! Yay God!
Me: You got a sticker from the basket in there?
Me: I didn't know you still liked stickers.
Noah: This one is for Scooby - it's a picture of a cute girl dog.
Me: Oh Really?
Noah talking as Scooby: Hey I like you dog. You are cute and cuddly. I am interested!
Noah talking as Scooby: So, what kind of meat do you like?
I continue to laugh.
Noah as Scooby: Chicken? Beef? We could get together at the park and I could fetch balls for you.
Me: Um, Scooby, you don't like to fetch balls.
Noah as Scooby: For her I would.
I see a teaching moment and I jump on it.
Me: Scooby (but I'm really talking to Noah) don't ever try to be someone you aren't for a girl. Just be yourself. Don't change for anyone.
Noah as Scooby: So you want me to keep pooping on the carpet?
So much for teachable moments. But I love the silly ones! :0)
