My eight-year-old son grabbed a packet of bendy straws and plopped them onto the kitchen table. I glanced at the kid and went about my business. I was too busy to inquire what he might be doing with those things.
About five minutes later, he appeared with a bendy straw necklace draped over his neck. Somehow he had managed to connect all of the straws.
"Bubba, why do you have straws around your neck?" I asked.
"I made a straw thing, so next time I need a straw I don't have to search for one."
"Oh," I said, mildly amused.
"And you can use them, too," he added. "Next time you need a straw for an art project, all you have to do is ask, and I'll give you one."
Wow. Sometimes that boy really amazes me!
Precious child! Bubba has an inventor's mind!ReplyDelete
He sure does!Delete
So very convenientReplyDelete
He'll never have to walk far to get a straw!Delete
Well one never knows when a straw may be called for!ReplyDelete
Right. And there are so many art projects that require one. ;)Delete
Yes, it's always good to have a straw handy!ReplyDelete
Especially for drinking lemonade.Delete
Bubba definitely has a very creative mind! And you may need a straw!ReplyDelete
You never know when a straw will be required!Delete
thinking ahead is always goodReplyDelete
Bubba is always thinking ahead!Delete
Can I move to Atlanta with you?ReplyDelete
That's one way to think ahead! :PReplyDelete
The boy is always asking for straws, so now that's one less question I have to listen to!Delete
I love bendy straws. Maybe I'll follow Bubba's example.ReplyDelete
They make a cute necklace!Delete
You never know when you might need a straw!ReplyDelete
Very creative and cute. Probably inherited the creativity!ReplyDelete
The only better thing than little kids is grown up kids who help you with BIG things ;DReplyDelete
I can't wait for that to happen!Delete
Bubba's well of creativity is endless :)ReplyDelete
Ha! It's a bottomless pit!Delete
Only "sometimes"? That boy is gonna grow up to do great things.ReplyDelete
I think you're right!Delete
Maybe it will be the next fashion statementReplyDelete
Hmmm. I wonder if we could somehow package it up and sell it. ;)Delete
Straws, that's great.ReplyDelete
He's a smart kid. Who does he take after? ;)ReplyDelete
LOL! You need to make a coffee table book out of these posts, Sherry!ReplyDelete
What an idea. Why keep straws in a drawer when you can wear them as a necklace until you need them for your drink. : )ReplyDelete
