Today on our way to the supermarket
Jamie: "Maybe all this isn't real. Maybe I am a crab just dreaming
that I am a human being."
Or before bedtime
Jamie: "Well, I have been there for a bit in the past, but not all the time. There was a time when I was absent. When I was gone."
Jamie: "I mean in your past I have been there a little bit. But not all
the time. I have also been somewhere else."
Me: "What do you mean? When in the past? Where were you when you weren't around?" (...thinking he meant a recent day or one day in the past, a specific event)
Jamie: "I don't know where I was. I was in your tummy at some point, but I don't know where I was before..."
(...now Mama realized that he meant that he has been with me for a relativly short time considering I have been around for quite a while - much longer than him anyway.)
...my little philosopher.
