Conversations with Tyler - Part One

When Tyler and I say our prayers at bedtime, we ask God to help him to be a big boy and sleep all night in his own bed and for him to not have bad dreams.
After the prayer...

Tyler: (laughs) Mommy, I didn't know you knew why I came to your bed in the middle of the night! You told God you know why.

Me: You have bad dreams and get scared, so that's why you come to my bed, right?

Tyler:  Well, sometimes I wake up and think that lions will come in the house.

Me: Oh, really. You think there are lions roaming free outside?

Tyler: Well, there might be a man with some lions who will open the door and let them in.

Me: Naaahhh, he can't get in the house 'cause it's locked.

Tyler: Oh yes he can, if he's got a track hoe key!

Me:  Silly boy, a track hoe key will only start a track hoe.  It won't open our door.

Tyler:  Well, he might break my bedroom window and come in.

Me:  Nope, he can't do that.  It's too high off the ground.

Tyler:  Oh, yes he can.  He  could just throw something hard and metal through my window and then the lions could just jump in!

It makes sense to Tyler and because of that all these things could happen. I so remember my childhood fears. Bless his little heart.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

Too cute! He's going to be a wonderful writer! At least that's what I see. I love that you keep a record of what he says. If only I had blogged when Sam was that young.

Hey...can you come over and take a look at my latest post and then give me your opinion?

Have a great day!
