We’re having our family Solstice celebration today, which means we all opened our presents this morning. The kids are all happily playing and Daryl is watching a movie he asked for.
I just had to share this giggle from Jack.
I gave him a little science kit that is filled with little wheels, levers and parts to assemble basic machines like pulleys and he was happily playing with it while I was talking to Daryl. He thanked me profusely and said he really liked it.
I wasn’t paying much attention to him but he kept telling me what I was thinking.
Finally I asked what he was talking about.
“He’s reading your mind,” the kids told me matter-of-factly.
“Um, okay. Why?”.
“I’m using my mind reader machine,” Jack said.
“Oh. Did you make a mind reading machine?” I asked.
“Yeah, it came in this kit. Victoria says it’s a pyschic kit and that means you can be a mind reader!”.
Ahem. I tried to keep a straight face as I told Victoria to look again. I got him a physics kit.
Mind reading works too! 😉
