Yesterday The Snake and I were discussing Adam’s current trip back east for a few job interviews. As usual, the 5-year-old was complaining about something, which spurred me to ask, “Would you like to keep living in California?”
Surprisingly, he said “no.” But even more surprising is what came next:
I want to move to South Dakota.
Yeah, I’m gonna live in the guy with the beard.
The guy with the beard? You mean Abraham Lincoln?
Yeah, I’m gonna live in his left eye. *giggle*
Honey, you can’t live in Mount Rushmore.
Oh yeah, well I’m gonna sneak in and live in his left eye! … you can live in his right eye if you want.
All this is thanks to a cartoon he watched (where the bad guys hid in Mount Rushmore) along with his fifty states quarter collection. Who knew you could learn so much from a quarter?
