Just a normal day

I head loud crashing noises so I went to the window and looked down into the yard.

Me: Sonny, what are you doing?

Sonny: Not anything.

Me: What?

Sonny: Not doing anything.

Me: But the old clothes dryer we were going to take to the dump is in the middle of the yard ... and your bath towel is lying out there on the grass ... and you're naked ...

The workings of a child's mind. 'Nothing' can incorporate alot of activity and noise.

I wonder what constitutes "something" if that huge deal was "nothing?"

Jen said...

Hah! I'm not the only one suffering from "nothing" syndrome!

That's awesome. Did you get photodocumentation for posterity?

Nothing - the universal kid word for "I hope mum doesn't catch me"

Paige said...

So what you are saying is that when my hsband says he is doing "nothing", it might be a habit he learned as a child?

That is going to make it harder to change, isnt it?

Um...washing/drying clothes? Body surfing? Space travel?

When I once asked my kid what he was doing, he said, "Nothing!" in a loud voice then whispered, "just a little bit of a problem..."

Nothing... the universal answer of the ages. I think a little kid invented the word. Probably Cain.
I popped over from Life As Ae Know It.

In our house, "not doing anything" was usually a more silent activity, involving scissors and hair. I guess therein lies the difference between boys and girls.
