Crocodiles and Flat Tires

It amazes me what leap of thought my children can make. I was putting Tot to sleep last night and we were talking. Both boys are into Pokemon, Star Wars and Peter Pan. The conversations can get a little strange.

Last night was about the crocodile in Peter Pan. Tot decided that it was chasing me. Tot was saying it would "Bite Mommy". And being the smart arse that I am, I told him it couldn't bite mommy because I would take off in my race car. Tot got a big grin on his face and said "Flat Tire". HuH??? How did he know a flat tire would stop my car? Where did that come from and the logic behind it. I was so shocked I didn't even correct him and make him say a complete sentence.

Side note, Tot usually talks in complete sentences until he is tired. Then we get two or three word sentences. Like at night.

Even this morning, I am trying to figure out what he saw where to come up with a flat tire would stop my car. I think my hubby said something about Backyardigans and Austin. I'll have to do some research.

Kids are amazing, aren't they?
I used to love listening to what they would come up with next.
Now I sit in fear of what they will come up with next!
