A Moment in Braden's Head

I like this toy. It makes lots of noise.

Speaking of noise I think I'll go to the kitchen to get the pots and pans. Bang! Bang! This is fun!

Where is Mommy going? I better find out.

The Bathroom! Yahoo! I need to check the lotion stash again. Maybe this time I can figure these bottles out.

Never mind. I want to go to my room. I need the blocks.

No I need the other blocks. NO! THE OTHER ONES!

Forget it. I am going back to the living room.

Where is my phone? There it is. Hello. HELLO! This stupid thing doesn't work.

Where is Mommy! I need to tell her something.

She's in the bedroom. Yes! Maybe this time I can get the remote before she sees me.

Hey! Don't throw me out!

Is it lunch time yet. I want some food.

Can I have a bite of that? Give me a bite!

No. I don't want to sit still and eat.

Follow me. I have things to do.

so true. so true. tiring, isn't it?

Eric said...

if I am about to go somewhere sans children, i have to clear any thoughts in my head. They can sense that I am leaving or if I am missing. They could have not thought about me for 3 hours, but I'm gone for 3 seconds they freak out.

Gucci Mama said...

That was AWESOME! You totally captured the mind of a little boy.

Manic Mommy said...

Love it!

Wait 'til he's speaking and doesn't yet realize his internal monologue is external. It's truly one of my favorite stages.

Katherine said...

I literally laughed out loud at "Where is my phone? There it is. Hello. HELLO! This stupid thing doesn't work."

I think you pretty much nailed it.

Brian Miller said...

Where's my therapist? hahaha!

Rob said...

LOL. This was a great post. My 2 yr old is always saying "Can I have a bite". LOL

Busy schedule. How does he get it all done in a day?

Tom said...

"Oh, look! Mommy's on the phone. Time to ask five thousand questions at once, in my loudest voice!"

You nailed the internal dialogue perfectly.

PJ Mullen said...

Yep, that summarizes pretty well. If your mind changed directions as fast as theirs did you'd have a stroke.

James (SeattleDad) said...

Too funny.

A rare glimps into the inner workings of a little guys mind.

Nicely done!

They have a smaller attn. span than flies at that age. That is until they get interested in something that they are not allowed to have.
