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?"
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?"
"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.
Like the Dungeons and Dragons' Bag of Holding - room for everything!ReplyDelete
Actually, it'd be really cool to have never-ending pockets! Or like Alex said, a Bag of Holding :)ReplyDelete
With all the things I carry, I could use one of those!Delete
Bubba has never-ending imagination!ReplyDelete
You can say that, again!Delete
Never a dull moment around Bubba. :)ReplyDelete
You should have bugged Bubba back (say THAT five times fast) by continually asking him "Are we there yet?" :)
Haha! Good tongue twister! I'll have to remember to bug Bubba next time.Delete
thank god there weren't dead possums beside the road!ReplyDelete
Mary Poppins! Her bag ended up in his pocket. :)ReplyDelete
Haha! I think you are right!Delete
A never ending pocket would be fun, as long as people couldn't get sucked inReplyDelete
That could be a problem! ;0)Delete
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! lolReplyDelete
Yes - with a never-ending money supply! :0)Delete
It's surprising what kids do keep in their pockets......as long he didn't have a live spider.ReplyDelete
It really wouldn't have surprised me if he had pulled out a spider, or some other creature.Delete
He is full of surprises and pockets! :)ReplyDelete
Wonderful to have a great review!
That review was a nice surprise!Delete
I visited the reviewer. She has good taste. I hope Bubba doesn't ever pull a bug out of his pocket.ReplyDelete
I was expecting a lizard. ;0)Delete
Never ending pockets. That's a good one.ReplyDelete
I thought so, too.Delete
That's a nice game I can play with my niece the next time she comes over. Thanks, Sherry! And congrats on that lovely review.ReplyDelete
It would be nice if I had never ending pockets. Even my purse is stuffed full!ReplyDelete
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!Delete
Yay for a positive book review!ReplyDelete
A never ending pocket on a sweet long walk....now that could be the premise for a children's book!
I think you're right!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Haha! Exactly like the Tardis!Delete
Congrats on the great review! :)ReplyDelete
And LOL, Mary Poppins probably knows where to find some never-ending pockets for Bubba... XD
It's definitely something Mary Poppins would have.Delete
Can he pull loads of money out of that pocket?ReplyDelete
That's what I was wondering.Delete
Such fun. Love that imagination of Bubba's!!ReplyDelete
Congrats on the great review!
The Hobbit, anyone? hahaReplyDelete
Love his creativity!ReplyDelete
I bet my grandson would like your bird book for Christmas. Nice review. :)
If you get it, first of all, thanks, and second, I hope he enjoys it!Delete
That pocket of his does sound never ending... lol... it sounds like he has fun though xoxReplyDelete
He certainly does!Delete
How fun. Sounds like Mary Poppins' purse.ReplyDelete
Exactly like Mary Poppin's purse!Delete
My pockets have never ending lint and it drives the wife absolutely bonkers.ReplyDelete
Sounds like your pockets are alive. ;0)Delete
He had fun! And kept you entertained too!ReplyDelete
He always keeps me entertained!Delete
Never ending pockets. Very handy indeed.ReplyDelete
I should say so!Delete
I'd like some pockets like that! Congrats on the great review.ReplyDelete
You and me both. Thank you!Delete
Bubba must have adjustable pockets! So glad you got such a nice review for your adorable book!ReplyDelete
The review was a nice surprise!Delete
He's really getting good at those magic tricks!ReplyDelete
He has all kinds of tricks up his sleeves!Delete
