Fanciful imaginings of a four year old

DSC07027

On the other end of the spectrum (next to his little sister’s fixation on all things practical and tangible) is my imaginative four year old with his whimsical and sometimes offbeat ideas…

“Mummy, when I grow up, I want to be a knight. I will ride on a horse and have a sword.
I will wear a black helmet with a red feather. I will fight dragons and bad people.
Grace can be the princess. And I can also be the prince so we can get married.”

“Mummy, you know what? I wish our blue car can drive by itself. So daddy will sit in front,
but the wheels will turn by itself and the car will go on its own. And our grey car too!
And I can sit in front and the car will drive by itself. That will be nice.”

“Mummy, I was thinking about something… that our family can all be like superheroes.
Daddy can be Batman. I will be Superman with a blue cape. You can be Batgirl. Grace can be a Superman but a girl Superman… Oh I know! A Supergirl. Daddy and you will drive a Batmobile. I will drive a Batmobile too, but mine is a purple one. Your one is pink. Gracie’s one is purple. And daddy’s one will be… ermmm… Green! When we see a cat, we can climb up to rescue it. Also if we see a car break down, we can use a rope to tie it with a red hook and pull it. And then we will take the car to the mechanic to get it fixed. We can do so many things.”

    1. Self-driving, talking car... that is the dream! And true, he might very well be able to own one by the time he is old enough to drive!
