I was babysitting my neighbor’s four-year-old son in Montauk tonight. We were drawing, and we reached a point where he asked me to draw him something and then he colored it in. I drew a firetruck, airplane, police helicopter, and police car when he asked me to draw a police boat.
Wanting to be sure that I met the expectations of the soon to be five-year-old, I asked him, “What does a police boat look like?”
He proceeded to take my head in his hands, place his forehead against mine, and ask, “Can you see it in my mind?”
It was the cutest thing! When I admitted to him that sadly, no, I could not see it in his mind, his response was, “Well, let’s see how you do.”
I love this kid! :)
