Moon people

Pictures of Adam from his Auntie are my lifeline. That and our phone calls.

Those who believe [almost] 4 year olds haven’t mastered the art of conversation obviously haven’t met my son.  Not only is Adam’s vocabulary extensive, but he adores expressing his thoughts verbally.  People who are constantly shushing their kids irritate me to no end.  I’ve always loved hearing what’s on the mind of children.

Adam’s imagination is so wild.  He knows that lying is not acceptable and he should always tell the truth because I’ve worked extensively with him to instill a sense of virtue.  The difference between right and wrong is something my son knows.  However, that doesn’t stop him from some of his more….farfetched…ideas.  While he was still enrolled in private school in Paso Robles he often complained about his teachers.  Among other things they locked him in a tree house [and set fire to said tree house], starved him, and took his entire paycheck from Subway.  Bad teachers!

Many instances of him stretching the truth are just plain comical.  Some are quite interesting.  On several occasions Adam has attempted to explain to me what exactly a ‘moon person’ is.  A moon person is not an astronaut or an alien.  All three of those are separate categories.  There are also earth people, which aren’t quite humans.  Most of us cannot tell the difference between moon people, astronauts, aliens, earth people, and humans….but Adam’s on it.

My smart, imaginative little boy.  I miss being able to hear what’s going on in his head as he thinks it.  Hopefully he is being encouraged by everyone he encounters to imagine, explore, and talk freely.

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,

Sloane

About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
