My son has to draw a map of his bedroom using symbols. He's trying to think of more things to use. Conversation:
"Ma, what do you call that thing the soldiers stay in?"
"Barracks? Are you drawing your bed?"
"You're using barracks for your window?"
"Not barracks, Mama. The other thing they stay in."
**Puzzled mother look.**
He puts his hand in my face and wiggles his fingers. Just as I'm recovering from the, "Oh, no you didn't put your hand in my face!" he says, "Five! The thing with five sides! The shape, Mama!"
I've frustrated him.
"Pentagon?" I say, contritely.
Then he shook his head!
