A conversation with my son

[We're in the bathroom, because one of the cardinal laws of motherhood is that if you don't lock the door fast enough you'll have company while you pee. William is sitting on the edge of the tub.]

William: "Mommy, look, I'm Humpty Dumpty! I'm sitting on a wall!"

Me: "Oh my! Are you going to have a great fall?"

William: "No."

Me: "Well, that's good. I don't think the king has any horses or men around here."

William: [looks thoughtful] "Well, if I do fall, I'll get Woody and Buzz Lightyear to fix me!"

Me: "I guess that would work."


Please be respectful and courteous, and I will reciprocate.
