Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

Who told Monsoon he was supposed to be triplets?

Monsoon. That boy I love so much. He says some strange things sometimes. Things that make me wonder if he's a genius... or maybe if he's going to be that kid in 3rd grade who sat in the corner eating paste.

The other day, he told me my belly was going to get really big because two babies are going to grow in there. It came out of the blue, and it was a little strange. Although I would consider it a wonderful miracle, I am 100% positive that I am not pregnant.

Fast forward to this evening in the car. He brings it up again. I ask why he thinks there are two babies in my belly. He goes on to explain that when he was a baby, he went into my belly with two other babies. But then he was there all alone and he was very lonely. When he came out of my belly, the other babies didn't. "It was like they disappeared," he said.

This might seem a little strange to anyone who doesn't know the history behind Monsoon's conception. Truth is, there were 3 babies. Three thawed embryos were implanted into my uterus by fertility specialists. One of them became Monsoon. The other two just... disappeared.

It's not a secret, but it's not something we discuss. We just don't talk about it. SO... steel trap memory? Or glue sniffer?

Definitely not a glue sniffer. I love all the funny things that Monsoon says but seriously I think he is a very smart boy. I now get your tweet about this. Yea cause I was a little confused.

That's half a step away from those creepy kids in the movies and I always said if I had a creepy movie kid, I'd totally, well never mind the specifics but I wouldn't stick around for the creepy.

On a serious note, it's bizarre that he knows it was 3 and all but I don't maybe doubt that he has some sense of it. Long story but based on personal experience. More likely he's heard it mentioned somewhere and it stayed with him.

I don't know, I think kids are a lot more in touch with things that as adults we forget.

I'm shocked every day by what my kids pick up when I don't think they are listening. I'm sure he has heard the story and then just made up something that his little mind could work its way around.

Yeah, genius I think. Amazing the things kids remember hearing and when they bring it up later.

I really hope he has overheard that and remembered it. I won't say it's creepy, but it's downright ODD that he just brought that up...

Hmmm. I wonder ... wow, that would be incredible if he just somehow knew.

Michelle said...

Oh that totally gave me chills. Kids know things. They really do. And it freaks me out sometimes. He knew. He absolutely knew.

this is like that kid who recalled being a world war II pilot in a past life, but without the past life part.

Very incredible!!!

Ooooh, Monsoon has it going on, I've always said that! No glue sniffing in the world can make a kid that great :)
