You can take pretty much anything and add a remote control to it and make it excellent. According to Sam.
Over the last 24 hours I’ve had 3 separate conversations with 4 year old Sam about what he wants for his birthday, which is in May and not really what I consider to be just around the corner. Still, his birthday has become a frequent topic of conversation around here lately and since pretty much everything that comes out of Sam’s mouth is interesting enough to create a blog post I thought I’d go ahead and write out the three conversations here.
Sam: Mom, I really want a remote controlled carrot for my birthday.
Sam: Because it will just be so cool.
Me: Is that all?
Sam: No. I also want a remote controlled whale that is drawing.
And a balloon that doesn’t pop all the time.
And three green balloons that do pop sometimes.
And remote controlled balloons that glow.
Sam: Mom, for my birthday I really want you to get $100.
Me: You want me to get $100 for your birthday?
I mean I want you to get me $100 for my birthday so I can buy a remote control.
Sam: For my birthday I really want a remote controlled carrot.
And a remote controlled whale that is drawing, and a remote controlled TV, and a remote controlled shark, and a remote controlled helicopter.
Me: Sam, why does everything have to be remote controlled?
Sam: I don’t know.
Kait: Sam, that’s not a good enough answer for a blog post. Say something different.
I’m getting the feeling that Sam feels about remote controls the same way I feel about chocolate. It makes everything better.
And is there anything cuter than Sam in his dad’s flight suit?
