Here's something I bet many parents have never heard their kid say from the back of the car:
Ryan: "Hey Mom! You know what? Hitler and I are a lot alike, you know why?"
Me: "Um? Uh . . . why?"
Ryan (the following is only a rough estimate of his narration, content and style, since there's no possible way I can get this verbatim outside of having him miced* 24/7): "Well, we both like battles and wars and have lots of soldiers, well, I plan to have lots of soldiers I mean. Also I am going to take over the world, and that's what Hitler wanted to do."
Me: " . . . !"
Ryan continued cheerfully: "So yeah I'm going to have lots of soldiers and take over the world. Only I'M going to take over the whole world for Freedom. What I mean is, I'll take over a country, and then I'll say 'If you guys want Freedom, then you can have your country back.' And then I'll give it back and they can be free."
Me: "What will you do if they don't want Freedom?"
Ryan, innocently unconscious of any contradiction inherent in his words: "Well, then I'll show them all of my soldiers and AT-ATs and robots and then I'll say 'If you don't want Freedom, then I guess we'll have to fight.' And then they'll prob'ly be all scared and say 'Okay, OKAY! We'll take some Freedom!' because they'll be so scared of me and my soldiers. But if they don't, I'll just run their country until they want Freedom."
Sometimes I really really wonder just who it is I'm raising. By the way, you are all put on notice that Ryan will be taking over the whole world one day. He'll ask you a question. Choose wisely. :o)
