Blake was burning up tonight before I put him to bed (btw he is in his room, awake, still, doing God knows what). So I brought him in the bathroom and gave him some medicine. This is the conversation that ensued:
Me: lets give you some medicine and hopefully you will feel better in time for school tomorrow.
Blake: But Mom I have a play tomorrow
Me: I don't think you do buddy. Plus you are super warm. You gotta take this medicine.
Blake: I'm supposed to do a play with my friends, if I dont go to school they will come here at my window.
Me: Blake. that is a Caillou episode. Are you pretending to be Caillou?
He totally was. He took a Caillou episode and applied it to real life. He does this a lot. Like when he was making compost (Curious George) in the bathroom. Or when he pretends to be Andy from Toy Story. Which reminds me as we were walking into Target today he told me that Little Andy from Toy Story doesnt have a Dad. I told him that I thought he did he just didn't make it into the movie.
But what should I have said? Maybe Andy's Dad died. Perhaps he was a dead beat who heard about Little Andy on the way and hit the road. Maybe Andy was adopted. Artificial insimination. I really dont know. Ahhhhhhh.... Where do you think his Dad is? What would you have said??
Potential for Toy Story 4 if you ask me.
