Mo's deep thought for the day

If you follow this blog, you already know that my 3-year-old, Mo, is a deep thinker. For example:
  • He explained his brother's colostomy as a "belly button where poop comes out."
  • He purposely gets into time-out just before clean-up time or bedtime.
  • He describes holding his urine as "having a stopper in my penis."

So here's a recent Deep Though of the Day.

It started, like many of our conversations, with a question.

"Mom?"

"Yeah."

"Why do you say that same thing if you're trying to say 'Get outta my way' or if you're saying 'I just tooted?'"

"Hunh?"

"If you want someone to get out of the way, you say, 'Excuse me.' And if you just tooted, you say, 'Excuse me.'"

"Um, I guess you're right."

I guess I could have explained that "Excuse me" is a polite way of saying, "I'm sorry." But I only know that a flood of other questions would come pouring down - Why should I be sorry that I tooted, everybody toots? Why should I be sorry that he was in my way?

Instead, I just congratulated him for being such a savvy guy.

And I can't wait to hear what questions are coming for me next!
