Evan is finally taking an interest in what he wants to wear. His favorite is his Kung Fu Panda shirt as he calls it, or rather a shirt that says “Legend in the Making.” (Something about the legend part makes him think of KFP.) His newest favorite shirt is a shirt with red, grey, and white horizontal stripes with Winnie the Pooh on it. Evan zeroed in on the strips, calling the shirt his “candy cane shirt.”
The other day Evan was wearing his “candy cane shirt,” and Sean was dressed in a blue shirt with an “M” on it for M&Ms. I was wearing one of my many fairy shirts. (Yeah, I wonder when I’ll be too old to wear those, too.) As we were playing, Evan had an epiphany.
Evan: Mommy, I’m a candy cane dragon! (looks over to Sean.) Seanny is a M&M dragon! (looks at me) Mommy! You’re a sour gummy dragon!
As sour gummies are his treat for using the potty, I look at this as a good thing, not as a critic on my temperament. Besides, we’re all candy dragons in the end.
