France, India and South Dakota

Last night I was giving Joseph a bath and I had put in one of those tablets that changes the water colors. He was sitting there kind of staring into the water then he turned to me and said "When I was in France we didn't have enough food to eat so sometimes we pretended to eat colors." I asked him what happened after he was in France and he said he then went to India and then South Dakota after that. That all led to an interesting conversation today.

Joseph: Remember when I was in France?
Me: No, I don't remember that but I remember you telling me about it.
J: Then I was in India.
M: Yeah, how did you get there from France?
J: I don't know.......
M: Did you have the same family?
J: Not all the same but the same Mommy and Daddy. (long pause) I had the same parents in South Dakota too. (long pause) And then here too.
M: You mean me and Daddy?
J: Yeah. We were all the same but ...... (loooong pause) we looked different and we talked different and we had different hair.
M: What else do you remember?
J: Well, I went to French school in France but I liked India and South Dakota the best because I could do whatever I wanted. Can we go to Burger King now?

And that was the end of that.

It's strange when I think of all the stuff that happen to bring Joseph to us. It's almost like it was meant to be because we were supposed to be together. I don't know, maybe I'm just weird to think that stuff.

I don't think you're wierd to think those things, but your kid is starting to make the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

Hey, at least you can go to Burger King in your town.

P.S. Don't get weirded out til he starts talking French.
Oh, oh, then you can go look up online what he is saying and it's something really dark, like out of the Sixth Sense. Oh that would be awesome-creepy.
