Taking Things Literally

I must blog this quick exchange between my oldest son and myself from this morning. While watching the local news, a blurb about Toys For Tots was covered; and my oldest son was horrified.

Boy-Child#1: (all color drained from his face) Is that for real?
Tootsie: (confused) Uh, yeah, why?
Boy-Child#1: Really? You can do that?
Tootsie: Of course. Do you want too?
Boy-Child#1: NO! You wouldn't do that, would you?
Tootsie: Is there some kind of misunderstanding here?
Boy-Child#1: That just doesn't seem right. You give them a child and they give you a toy?
Tootsie: (breaks into hysterical laughter) No Honey, see....

Oh this is when it is so fun to have a document these moments. A tot for a toy...I like literalists.

LOLOLZ! Too funny! This is so something I would've asked my mom back in the day, too. :)

Have a good weekend, Tootsie!
