Applicable in a multitude of situations and conversations both overheard and had with my kids. It's part of my new response policy. For example:
Nadine's prayer of "Dear God please make me a dog named Martha. Amen."
Insert four S response and I'm not sure I really have anything else to say about that. I believe I've thoroughly outlined our identity issues in previous posts.
While walking through Costco yesterday Ryan was belting out, and I do mean belting a PBS song. There's a guitar wielding optimistic do-gooder on PBS that comes on for brief interjections of positive thought embedded in a catchy tune. Ryan (a remarkably good singer) relives these often.
He's been singing this today also, his modified version of "I can be anything I want to be" ends with,
"hmmmm a cement truck, or a backhoe" and the occasional use of jazz hands at times during the serenade. There's also been an encouraging word to his big sister regarding her current desire to be a dog named Martha. She can be anything at all too you know. Why would I tell them any different?
Insert 4 S response here.
Braeden currently needs a penalty for high sticking so I suppose I'll leave the explanations at that. Really what else is there to say.
