Moon Child

Demon Baby has one of the more extraordinary imaginations I have ever encountered. It is rich with dragons and monsters and swords and fighting. But also mystical elements.

Yesterday, Demon Baby said he was going to paint himself silver from head to toe. Then he was going to find a very tall ladder, go up into the sky and BE the moon for a few days.

I would never have thought up such a thing as a three-year-old . . . and it really makes me wonder about what great things he is going to do when he grows up.

Yeah . . . between the dragons that live in under the stairwell, the monsters in my closet, and his love of the moon . . . the kid is amazing sometimes.

I have contemplated trading him in. But he and I are stuck with each other. :-)
