Well, that's different. Why didn't you say so?

Today Jabberwock insisted on bringing a wooden jewelry box to daycare.

"Please be careful with that box, honey. We got it from Grandma Maggie, and it's pretty special to me. I'm not sure if it should be just a box for toys."

He looked at me with utter disdain. "It's not for toys, Mom." His tone conveyed nothing but contempt for someone who would carry around toys in a wooden box.

"Well, what are you keeping in there, then?"

"My notebooks," he said.

Well. That's a totally different story. Carry on, little writer man!

Well, unfortunately I cannot read what he writes, BUT he often will oblige me by reading aloud from his stories, and that just makes my day!
