Endless Pocket

Last night, I went for a walk with my son. For him, it's like going on a car ride. He needs things to keep himself entertained. The game he chose for this particular walk was, "guess what's in my pocket."

"Mama," he said, "What's in my pocket?"

"Your hand?"

He grinned. "Yeah. But what else?"

"I have no idea," I said.

"A bottle cap." He pulled it out and showed me.

Two seconds later, he asked again. "What's in my pocket?"

"What?"

"You have to guess."

"Okay. A string?"

"No." He pulled out a small stone. "Guess what else is in my pocket?"

"I don't know? A toy?"

"No." He pulled out a leaf.

The game went on and on. Each time, he'd drop back and pick something up off of the ground to shove in his pocket. Finally, he came up with a tree branch.

"Dude, that did not come out of your pocket," I said.

"How do you know?" he asked. "Maybe I have never-ending pockets!"

Before I go, I want to let you know that there's a nice review of my book, Ten Zany Birds on the blog, Mommy Wants to Read If you'd like to check it out, please hop over.

  2. Actually, it'd be really cool to have never-ending pockets! Or like Alex said, a Bag of Holding :)

  5. Hi, Sherry!

    You should have bugged Bubba back (say THAT five times fast) by continually asking him "Are we there yet?" :)

  8. A never ending pocket would be fun, as long as people couldn't get sucked in

  9. A never ending pocket could be very useful - and I bet there's a great children's story in there somewhere. I'll take a never ending wallet! lol

  10. It's surprising what kids do keep in their pockets......as long he didn't have a live spider.

    1. It really wouldn't have surprised me if he had pulled out a spider, or some other creature.

    1. When my kids were little, I had to have a giant purse to hold everything - toys, snacks, cameras, etc. A never ending pocket would have been quite useful!

  16. Yay for a positive book review!

    A never ending pocket on a sweet long walk....now that could be the premise for a children's book!

  17. Just as well I wasn't playing this game using my bag. A bit like the Tardis, small on the outside but large on the inside.
