I had to write this quick little note.
Josiah is in the kitchen painting the following:
1. Stegosaurus wooden cut-out.
2. Puppy dog clay figure.
3. Foam pumpkin cut-out.
He knows his colors obviously, but the way he asks for the paint colors kills me. First you must know that Josiah is a big nerd. He enjoys things like Star Trek, Ninja Turtles and Star Wars. When discussing colors or asking for them here's how he refers to them: "Mom, get the "Donatello" please." Now- what on God's green earth does that mean to most people? Nothing. Crazy toddler talk. To me it means (quite obviously) to get the purple paint. What if had asked for the Spock or Leonardo? Something of the blue persuasion. Red? Raph or Scotty. Gold? Capt. James T. Kirk. Orange? Michaelangelo.
Josiah has a big, wonderful imagination. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
