He Said

We were leaving the mall and we noticed a disabled man in a wheel chair being escorted by his elderly mother.  I'm not sure which disease this man had, but he was physically and mentally disabled.  Marco, who had never noticed anyone in such a state began asking questions:

Marco: Mama... what's that? (pointing to the chair)
Me: Marco, that's a wheel chair... kinda like a stroller, but for adults.
Marco:  But what's that (pointing to the man), is he sleeping?
Me: No baby, that man has a big ay-ay (ay-ay is the spanish "boo-boo") and he can't walk or run or talk and his mama has to take care of him.
Marco: Oh, Mama, he needs kisses. 


He found a lime on the counter:

Marco:  (yelling) Look Papai, it's an Apple-Corn!
Mauricio:  No, that's a lime.
Marco: No... it's an apple-corn.
 

I was showing him a picture of an igloo:

Me: Do you know what this is?
Marco:  Yes, a house!
Me:  You're right... it's a house made of ice.
Marco: And cheese too. 


We were outside playing and the wheel of his trike got stuck on the curb.  He starts talking to himself:

Uh, oh no, my wheel is stuck.  Uh... I can't get it.  Oh, I know, maybe a Mouse-ka-tool can help!  
OH TOOOOOOODLLLLEEEESSSS! 
(waits for Toodles to appear)
Hey? Where's Toodles?  
(screaming now)
HEY TOODLES, YOU COME HERE... I NEED HELP WITH MY WHEEL... COME ON, TOODLES!

That silly Toodles! I find myself singing the mouse-ka-tool song in my head during the day. I've also decided that Mickey is a raging narcissist, but he keeps my baby happy so we're good.

Oh my goodness, that is so cute! The one about the man in the wheelchair melted my heart. :-)
