"Our Senses" (Last post people. You’ll have to find me on WordPress with a 6-year-old tomorrow!)
It turns out that Blogger realized that they were having “issues” yesterday. Yeah, I know all about the “issues”. Wasted a lot of my time. I’m sorry to hear it, but I’m still moving to my new home at “shitmy6yearoldsays.wordpress.com”. Please come visit us over there tomorrow! I won’t even know you’re there because of WordPress’ lack of a follower widget.
Jack asked (jack assed?) me what our 5 senses were. He must have heard that at school.
me: The 5 senses are the way we take in information about the things around us. (I didn’t want to get into the 6th sense…though I did think about mentioning it. He can wait and see the movie.)
me: What’s the first thing you do when you get a new toy?
Jack: Rip open the package?
me: No, before that, when it’s on the shelf.
Jack: I look at it.
me: Right! That’s one of the senses. Seeing. What are you doing right now?
Jack: Listening to you talk.
me: Right again. Hearing is another sense. So that’s two. (I rubbed his cheek)
Jack; Why are you touching me?
me: Because that’s the 3rd sense. Touch.
Jack: Ohhhh, so what else do we do?
me: When you eat, what do you do?
Jack: Taste the food!
me: What’s the last part that we haven’t talked about? (I point to my nose.)
Jack: Smelling! That’s 5! What’s the 6th sense?
me: Huh? There are only 5.
Jack: Then why were you thinking about 6 before?
This kid always freaks me out.
