Lately, Simon has been really concerned about things running out (or “almost out”), so we spend some time talking about where we might get more. This was this morning’s rundown:
Me: Hey, Simon, we’re almost out of gas. Where should I go to get more?
Simon: A das station!
Me: And what if I need some coffee?
Simon: At da coffee house!
Me: We need some groceries. Where could I go?
Simon: Da gwoooshwee stoe. [That’s “grocery store,” but I bet you got that from the context.]
Me: I need more socks. Where do I get those?
Me: Hmmm. Okay, what if I need a shirt.
Simon: Hy-Vee too!
Me: How about Target?
Simon: Nooooo. Silly Mommy.
Me: [Trying to throw him for a loop.] Where would I get a new belly button?
Simon: [Without missing a beat.] God!
