Ethan: "Mom I have a problem."
Me: " What's that?"
Ethan: "My tongue is growing too big for my mouth."
Ethan: "Everyday when I wake up my tongue is bigger than the day before, and my mouth just stays the same. Mom, this is very hard, I can't fit my tongue in my mouth anymore. What am I going to do?"
Me: thinking of an answer when Tyler(who,by the way, is almost 3 and should know the difference ) comes out yelling holding a toy camel in his hands
Tyler: "momma look. The dolphin, it swims." He splashes the camel in some water making it swim. He continues, " Cute dolphin, momma. So cute, baby dolphin. See?"
So... Some questions I have :
- What is Ethan talking about. Can your tongue really grow bigger?
- Why is my three year old calling a camel a dolphin...and should I be concerned?
- And how does my adult brain stay intact when these are the questions I am asking myself?
