It was day 2 of vacation. We stopped about 2 hours from the beach (yes we were stiiiill on the road) for the 3rd and most whiny "I hafta potteeeeeeee" break in twenty minutes. Needless to say, the boys were getting a bit fed up with my pea-sized bladder.
When I came out of the bathroom (after a long wait), dear husband was in line for caffeine and had Monsoon in a football hold, angry thermometer face on and temp rising. Oddly, the boy seemed perfectly happy, so I took him and headed outside to stretch our legs. Before we made it to the door he pointed and said, "Look at him!" He was really really excited, but I knew right then why hubs was so red.
I, too, had noticed the little person waiting in line when we first went in, and made a mental note to work out a specific version of my "everybody is different and that's a good thing" spiel, just in case. I don't mind when Monsoon asks about people, and I try to be prepared because he does ask. A lot. Unfortunately, husband was not prepared. At all.
When they got in line behind this man, Monsoon not only asked about him but made a HUGE deal about the guy being little like him, jumping and yelling about it while my husband could only "SSSHHHHhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!" him. Monsoon was so excited about a grown-up being his size, he just couldn't stop going on about it. Really, he thought it was the coolest thing ever.
We had a discussion about it when we got to the car (which is when hubs told me what happened). Monsoon is still confused about why something so cool might embarrass someone.
