conversations with the Jabberwock

Here's Jabber checking his compass on a recent hike through the woods. It's very important to him that we do not get lost, so he checks the compass quite frequently. He also very much dresses himself, right down to the dapper little hat and scarf.

The Jabberwock and I have been having quite a few deep conversations lately. Let's see, there was the moment just before sleep when he demanded to know about how the little daddy cells get into the place where the mama cells are to make a baby. "But how do the cells get OUT of Daddy and INTO you???"

Um. Yeah.

Or this morning he got mad at me--really passionately furious, actually--when I explained to him why he couldn't have a step-dad. And then there was the one in which he informed me that he is actually part feline.

Jabber: Mom, did you know that I'm half human and half puma?

Me: Um, wow. No you did not tell me that.

Jabber: Well, I am. You know every morning I just feel myself, and...there's fur growing all over my chest.

Me: Wow! That's amazing!

Jabber: Yeah, and there are like, black spots on my sides and stuff.

Me: So are you a puma during the day or during the night?

Jabber: *snarls like a crazy wild cat and slashes at me with his sharp claws*



Moments ago we had this exchange, which just really seemed to fit my theme of the day:

Me: Boys, you're being awfully loud. Those are not really inside voices.

El: Well, they would be if we lived in outer space!

Ha ha! "They would be if we were in outer space!"

My little one is still addressing everyone as "bucket of bolts". As in "oh no you don't, you bucket of bolts!" Star Wars thing.
