Wisdom from the booster seat

December 12, 2011

Phil was in rare form today as we drove to and from his preschool.

On the way there, I was explaining that the days are shorter in December than during the rest of the year. “It’s good the nights are long, so Santa has time to deliver toys to every boy and girl,” Phil noted. Pretty good reasoning for a 5-year-old.

On the way home, he was pretending that one of his plush ducks was shrinking. “Ducky’s so small that you can’t see him,” Phil said. “He’s as small as a cell.” Pretty good simile for a 5-year-old.

  1. By the time he’s 6, he’ll realize that if Santa travels with the rotation of the earth, he can make use of 24 hours of night, no matter what time of year it is.
