While reading a bedtime story to my kids, I heard a sucking sound coming from the general vicinity of my 5-year-old son D-. Since he has been known to occasionally nearly destroy clothing and sheets by sucking or chewing on them, I was all over it.
Me: Were you just sucking on your sheet?
D- (innocently): No.
Me: How about your pajamas?
Me: Were you sucking on any of your stuffed animals?
Me: How about your fingers?
D- (short pause, then either coming clean or going for gold in expressing his opinion): ...Yeah-- this one.
Guess which finger he held up to me?
You may also enjoy my previous D- conversations, (3 YO daughter) M- conversations, and (wife) J- conversations.
