I spy with my little eye

I'm sure most of you are familiar with this car game. I try to play it with CJ in the morning as a distraction in the car(he is anti-everything he is suppose to do in the car, including sitting in his car seat, sitting down etc..). So thing morning was a really good morning to spot things out of the normal car, trucks etc...

  • A plane circling the airport. CJ was very excited about this one, he loves looking at the planes preparing to land. He will usually say "Airplanes coming".
  • A horse- The Black Cowboys had the horses out early today grazing. (Yes in Brooklyn).
  • A van with a Barack Obama poster in the window.. I said to CJ " I spy with my little eye the next president" and he screamed OBAMA. My job is done.

Finally I let him tell me what he spied, the conversation went something like this:

ME: C.J spies with his little eye


ME: Moo? *I'm thinking he spies his favorite book*. Mr. Brown?

CJ: No mommy NO! MOOO

ME: A Cow? where?

CJ: VRIGHT THERE (right there)

ME: HAHAHAHA, CJ that is not nice

Cab driver: well she does have on a cow printed dress, hat and bag.

At this point I am hysterical laughing tears and all, and CJ was sitting there smiling, Proud as a can be.

The woman was very thin but was indeed covered from head to toe in a black and white cow print. I can't say it enough, my child is amazing. I didn't bother talking to him about it because he wasn't making fun of the lady plus my hysterical laughter might be seen as a tad bit hypocritical.

Ahh the joys of being the mom of a 2 year old!
