I love the mind of an almost 3 1/2 year old.  Some days I could do without the constant inquisitive-ness and other days I wish I could climb in his brain and figure out what he's thinking.  But most days I just try to keep my sanity and enjoy the giggles, kisses, and often laugh at with him.

On Tuesday afternoon, we made our weekly shopping trip and once home I was trying to finish up some laundry, unpack the bags, and get dinner started for our company that night.  Both boys were getting hungry, so I'd opened a pack of crackers for them.  Hudson was in the middle of the kitchen floor eating (I mean, where else would he be??) and Garrett was watching something on tv.  Every time he'd come back into the kitchen asking for another cracker, I'd ask him to do something before I'd give it to him.  I'm nice like that. 

On one trip back in, I handed him a bottle of shampoo and conditioner, and asked him to take it to our bathroom.  The following was our conversation:

G: "Another cracker, please?"

Me: "Will you take this into Mommy's bathroom for me first?"

G: "Into Mommy's bathroom?"

Me: "Yes.  Just put it on the counter."

G: "On the counter?" 

Me: "Yes.  On the counter beside the sink."

G: "Beside the sink?"  (picking up on a pattern here??!)

Me: "Yes.  Beside the sink."

G: "Okay, Mommy."   

And off he went. 

Later last night when I was getting ready for bed, I realized there was no shampoo or conditioner on the counter.  Or in the shower.  Or in the sink.  But, what I did (finally!) see...... least it was in the general vicinity of where I'd asked!!  And note how neatly they were placed beside the sink!  ha!
